BUSH’S BEANS® INKS MULTI-YEAR PARTNERSHIP RENEWAL WITH JTG DAUGHERTY RACING
Partnership through racing program extends nearly two decades
HARRISBURG, N.C. (August 16, 2018) – As one of the longest standing partners with JTG Daugherty Racing, BUSH’S Beans has signed a multi-year partnership renewal with the race team as a primary partner on the No. 37 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, and an associate partner on both the No. 37 and the No. 47 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.
“BUSH’S Beans has been with us almost since our first season in NASCAR, a partner with the team for more than 15 years,” JTG Daugherty Racing team owner Tad Geschickter said. “BUSH’S Beans is a private, family-owned business and has a culture that shares a lot of the same values that we do at JTG Daugherty Racing. Not only are they one of our longest standing partners of the race team, but they are also very close friends and we are proud to continue to showcase their brand at NASCAR’s highest level of competition.”
BUSH’S Beans is celebrating their 110th-year anniversary in 2018, a family-owned operation that began as a tomato cannery in Chestnut Hill, Tennessee in 1908. Since then, they have grown to be one of the largest high-quality canned variety bean distributors in the world and are still family-owned and operating out of Chestnut Hill.
“We are proud to extend our relationship with JTG Daugherty Racing,” Mike Morris, senior brand manager at Bush Brothers & Company, said. “Jodi, Tad and all the folks at JTG have been incredibly helpful in growing our business for nearly two decades and we look forward to continuing our partnership on and off the race track.”
BUSH’S Beans next primary appearance will be on Buescher’s No. 37 Camaro ZL1 at BUSH’S Beans hometown track, Bristol Motor Speedway, on August 18 for the coveted Bristol night race.

A hard fought day results in another top 20 finish at MIS
Chris Buescher and the No. 37 Slim Jim team battled all day within the top-20, running as high as sixth, in the Consumers Energy 400 at Michigan International Speedway, before ultimately finishing in 20th-position.
“We had a really good Slim Jim Camaro ZL1 today at Michigan International Speedway,” Buescher said. “When we were able to race in clean air without traffic, we had really good speed and were able to gain spots on long green-flag runs. We were fighting for position after having a slower pit stop towards the end of the race. We definitely gave it all we had out there and even run near the front with our pit strategy. We just needed that caution so we could get a little more fuel in it to make it to the end. I’m really proud of the hard work everyone put in today at Michigan, and I am really looking forward to heading to one of my favorite tracks, Bristol Motor Speedway next weekend.”
HOMETOWN RACE FOR BUSH’S BEANS:
“Bristol Motor Speedway is my favorite racetrack,” Buescher said. “The atmosphere at the track, and having BUSH’S Beans on our car near their hometown makes Bristol a really special place to be. We always have a great group from BUSH’S Beans in attendance, and the copper paint scheme on our Camaro ZL1 has been one of my favorite paint schemes of the season. It looks especially good under the lights in The Last Great Colosseum.”
