(April 22, 2019), Milverton, ON- 22 Racing is pleased to announce today the addition of Rust-Oleum as a team partner for 2019. The Rust-Oleum line of automotive products will be used on our fleet of 2019 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1’s driven by Alex Tagliani, Marc-Antoine Camirand and Donald Theetge at race tracks across Canada and in our 22 Racing shop.
Rust-Oleum Corporation is a worldwide leader in protective paints and coatings for both home and industry. They offer a wide product range including decorative fashion paints, durable industrial roof repair coatings and, of course, the famous rust-fighting formula that started it all.
“I got a personal introduction to a large number of their brands and products this week at the Rustoleum warehouse in Concord,” said Scott Steckly, team owner and Four-Time NASCAR Champion. Thank you, Kristen Nicol, for the tour and we are thrilled to have Rust-Oleum join our team in 2019. We have used a few of their brands over the years at 22 Racing so a partnership seemed a perfect fit for us.”
“Rust-Oleum is thrilled to partner up with the 22 Racing team for 2019,” said Kristen Nicol, Senior Brand Manager, HPC and Automotive. “The combination of two great brands is a winning combination.”
The NASCAR Pinty’s Series is made up of thirteen races that take place across Canada with the addition in 2018 of their lone event out of the country at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Events take place on street courses, road courses and ovals with the first race on the calendar in 2019 on Sunday May 19th at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park just outside of Bowmanville, ON.

Solving challenges is the very foundation of who we are. After all, in the beginning, our founder, sea captain Robert Fergusson, didn’t particularly care about paint. He just wanted to keep his ship intact. That’s why, when he noticed that an accidental splash of fish oil had stopped the relentless spread of corrosion on his rusty metal deck, he immediately recognized it for what it was: A valuable solution.
The same passion that drove the Captain to spend his next few years creating the world’s first rust-preventative paint still drives us today. When we see a problem, we work diligently until we’ve perfected a solution—which has led to some of the most cutting-edge, durable and innovative products in the industry.
If you’ve got a surface you need to protect or a look you want to transform, you’ve come to the right place. We have a coating for every challenge.
Welcome to Rust-Oleum, home of trusted quality—and powerful solutions—since 1921
