W BY ANDY SALCIDO hen international brewing company Anheuser-Busch shifted its sponsorship of NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick from Budweiser to Busch earlier this year, the branding change involved more than simply re-skinning Harvick's No. 4 stock car. It also meant a shift in national branding for the Anheuser-Busch label, pushing Busch beer to the foreground for the first time since 2007. With Bud taking a backseat, the beer producer partnered with Phoenix International Raceway, or PIR, as it's known in the racing circuit, and rebranded the existing Speed Cantina at the track to the new Busch Garage. A fan favorite located just outside Turn 2, the sports bar and grill site, formerly sponsored by the Speed channel, features custom furniture, flat panel TVs, live music, and racing-themed food and drink specials during each race weekend. The Busch rebrand meant that all of the existing Speed elements and interior signage, as well as the custom fabricated exterior signs, all of which featured a vibrant red - both Speed and Budweiser's signature color - would need to be updated to blue Busch graphics. As bluemedia now enters its seventh year as the preferred signage and graphics provider for the track, PIR brought us in to transform the space and add to the entire fan and brand experience, from vinyl wall, window, tabletop, and concessions graphics, to custom fabricated channel letters, sign faces, and illuminated sign cabinets.
