This car is certainly a looker, so we can’t blame Busch for straying from Toyota for the 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air, a classic car that has plenty of weight and energy behind it with a two-tone color scheme that you just don’t see these days.
Busch paid a hefty ninety-nine thousand dollars for this vintage coupe, and he immediately went to work updating it with modern engine pieces and safety equipment. You might think that’s a pretty penny for a car and a hobby but remember – Busch has earned almost a hundred million, not including endorsements.
Don't Come Between a Man and His Truck
Ken Block has done plenty during his life, including co-founding DC shoes. But he's also a professional rally driver for Hoonigan Racing Division, and participates in a number of other sports, like snowboarding, skateboarding, and motocross.
In order to keep up with his active, sporty lifestyle, Block uses a Ford F-150 Raptor to help him get where he needs to go, and just like Block himself, it's a rugged machine that works in any weather and on any roads. It's a perfect driver and vehicle fit, and the two go together like peanut butter and chocolate.
Beaten and Bruised Outside, Beautiful Inside
NASCAR great Jimmie Johnson has plenty of good things to say about his old Chevy Stepside. “It looks old, but it's very comfortable to drive around.” The rust-bucket is one of Johnson's favorite cars. It has even become his go-to car for commutes and regular drives.
It may look like it's falling apart: paint is peeling and metal is rusting. Don't get into a race with this NASCAR name, though – Johnson has souped his fave up with a corvette engine, and you know he still has the skills.
This Famous Female Driver Didn't Even Have her Own Car
Danica Patrick is the GoDaddy.com girl, the current girlfriend of star quarterback Aaron Rodgers, and a champion race car driver, but while she was on the circuit an interesting fact came to light: she didn't even own her own car.
Being Ford sponsored, Patrick was given free cars to drive when she needed to, and trade in when she got tired of them. The most well-known was the Ford Expedition, and while the SUV is rather unremarkable as far as NASCAR names go, it still got her from one place to the next. Of course, once she showed up on the track, she jumped into her real vehicle and brought home the gold.
Block is Always Focused
Ken Block is lucky for a reason you might not realize. Not only is he an incredibly talented racer and a championship winner, but he's one of the few Americans who have been able to drive a Ford Focus RS.
The car was only available in Europe, but it's one of the fastest hatchbacks on the market, and Ken Block, being an athlete in a number of different venues, had enough sway to convince Ford to give him one.
