WIX Filters Primary Sponsor For Clint Bowyer’s No. 14 Ford Fusion At Chicagoland

WIX Filters, a global manufacturer of filtration products, will serve as the primary sponsor of Clint Bowyer and his race-winning No. 14 Ford Fusion during Chicagoland race weekend, with WIX Filters represented on Bowyer’s car and firesuit.

“WIX’s sponsorship of Clint and the No. 14 team is a natural extension of our partnership with Stewart-Haas Racing,” said Jennifer Gibson, brand manager, WIX Filters. “It’s great being under the hood but the new paint scheme is going to look incredible. Clint is off to a successful start this season, and we’re looking forward to continuing that success at Chicagoland.”

Bowyer is the most recent SHR driver to deliver a win for WIX Filters. The 13-year NASCAR Cup Series veteran from Emporia, Kansas, scored his ninth career victory and his first with SHR when he won March 26 at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway. The victory was SHR’s fourth this year, the most of all NASCAR teams. The 2018 season marks SHR’s 10th anniversary, with the organization having won two NASCAR Cup Series titles (2011 and 2014) and 47 races since debuting in 2009.

“My wife, Lorra, sometimes wishes I wore a filter more often. WIX Filters finally granted her wish,” joked Bowyer. “But in all seriousness, we’ve been bringing some fast hot rods to the racetrack each weekend and I know that WIX Filters has played an important role in that. In this sport, every detail matters, and a lot can be gained by having the best filters on our racecars. Efficiency equals horsepower, and you can never have enough horsepower.”

Bowyer has made 12 career NASCAR Cup Series starts at Chicagoland, with a best finish of fourth in 2010. He is currently sixth in the championship point standings with two top-five and four top-10 finishes. His Martinsville victory punched his playoff ticket, making Bowyer championship-eligible for the sixth time in his career.

Since 1967, generations of motorsports champions have driven to victory with WIX Filters. Today, the racetrack continues to serve as a grueling test ground. WIX Filters engineers work side-by-side with its teams, applying their research in the ultra-competitive world of auto racing to the everyday demands of light- and heavy-duty consumer and commercial usage.
