The speed, athleticism and teamwork inherent in college football and NASCAR merge this year as combines its football and car-racing assets in a series of high-impact promotions.  

This Saturday, Aug. 30, at Atlanta Motor Speedway, TaxSlayer Bowl will enter the NASCAR scene as a primary sponsor of Regan Smith’s No. 7 Chevrolet Camaro. On Friday, Jan. 2, 2015, NASCAR marquee driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. will mark his fourth consecutive appearance at the TaxSlayer Bowl, driving his iconic No. 88 Chevrolet Camaro into midfield at EverBank Field before flipping the coin to kick off the annual bowl game.   

The two events signify a move by online tax preparation firm to cross- promote between its college football and racing entities.  
“We saw an opportunity to use our involvement in the TaxSlayer Bowl and NASCAR to bring together fans of these two long-standing traditions,” said Jimmy Rhodes, president and CEO of “Both draw national crowds and, by interweaving them, we can grow not only excitement for these two events but also the next generation of football and NASCAR fans.”  

At 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 30, the TaxSlayer Bowl car will debut at the NASCAR Nationwide Series Great Clips 300 to benefit Feed the Children on ESPN2. Driver Regan Smith will join with other NASCAR stars to battle it out under the stars for 300 miles at Atlanta Motor Speedway.  
“I’m truly excited to run the TaxSlayer Bowl Chevy this weekend in Atlanta,” said Regan Smith. “Football and racing are two of my favorite passions and it doesn’t get any better than combining the two, especially on opening weekend of college football. I’ve got to thank our friends at for putting together this program. I know that they are big football fans, too.”
