West Coast Customs and Geek Squad design Edwards' car
The world famous West Coast Customs (WCC), renown vehicle customizers and producers of the hit vehicle-build reality TV show Inside West Coast Customs, has partnered with Best Buy’s Geek Squad to develop Carl Edwards’ No. 99 race car design for the NASCAR Pure Michigan 400 race. Ryan Friedlinghaus, a NASCAR fan, was excited when long-time partner Geek Squad approached the WCC team on designing a car for this race.
“This was a very unique and exciting opportunity for West Coast Customs,” said Ryan Friedlinghaus, CEO and founder of West Coast Customs. “As a devoted NASCAR fan, seeing the WCC design and logo on Carl Edwards’ race car will be an amazing experience. We are filming the unveiling and all the activities throughout the weekend for our TV show Inside West Coast Customs.”
“The race this weekend is huge for us,” said Carl Edwards. “To have Ryan Friedlinghaus, who designed the paint scheme, and all the West Coast Customs and Geek Squad people there will be really cool. I got a chance to visit Geek Squad City when we were in Kentucky for the race and I met a lot of really great people there who are behind us and I hope we can get a win for them."
