Max Gresham Unveils new Bugband truck at Las Vegas NHS Show
NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver, Max Gresham and BugBand president, Dan Ritter lit up Las Vegas and the National Hardware Show this morning, posing for photos with the new No. 24 Made In USA Brand/BugBand Chevrolet that Gresham will wheel in the N.C. Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Friday, May 18.
Gresham and Ritter were on hand for the unveiling as part of Tuesday's opening of the 67th-Annual National Hardware Show. One of the largest and longest running annual expositions of its kind, The National Hardware Show showcases new products and services in several major market segments including the Hardware, Tools, Outdoor Living, Homewares, Lawn and Garden, Tailgate and Pet industries.
This year's expo will draw thousands to the Las Vegas Convention Center, Tuesday-Thursday, May 1-3.
"We're very proud to partner with Max Gresham," said BugBand's Ritter. "Racing is a natural fit with BugBand's natural insect repellents. We want to provide all of Max's fans with an insect-free outdoor experience so they can concentrate on enjoying the race."
BugBand products will be showcased in Booth #10532 throughout the run of the giant trade expo. Gresham signed autographs at the BugBand display prior to today's truck unveiling and will again be available for autographs and photos at the BugBand exhibit tomorrow - Wednesday - from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Pacific Time.

In addition to the Charlotte race association, BugBand will continue to appear as a partner on Gresham's Joe Denette Motorsports Chevrolet Silverado and other race vehicles at select events throughout the rest of the year. Gresham is also scheduled to participate in several BugBand marketing initiatives in 2012.
BugBand - a Made In USA Brand Certified company - is the first to lend sponsorship to Gresham's Made In USA Brand on-track awareness program. The effort is a campaign to draw attention to American-made products, services and companies - and to encourage consumers to look for the Made In USA Brand Certification Mark when they are making purchases.
Gresham's Made In USA Brand/BugBand NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Chevrolet Silverado will be on display at the Made in USA Pavilion throughout this week's National Hardware Show.
In all, more than 50 companies will be spotlighted in the Made In USA Pavilion this year - the first time in the history of the National Hardware Show that such an area has been designated.
