After three decades, the familiar red Budweiser dragster owned and driven by six-time NHRA champion Kenny Bernstein and now piloted by son Brandon, will take its final bow at the season ending Automobile Club of Southern California Finals November 12-15.
The Bernstein family would like to end their 30-year Bud involvement with a trip to victory circle.
“This final race is going to be very emotional for our family,” said Budweiser/Lucas Oil team owner Kenny Bernstein. “We owe a debt of gratitude to all the executives, brand management and sports marketing team members and wholesalers who have touched our lives during our tenure at Anheuser-Busch. All of these folks made it possible for a young man from Texas to follow his dream. We have enjoyed success that was way beyond our wildest imagination when we were a teenager reading hot rod magazines in high school. It’s been a great ride.”
