"The Marine Corps is proud to be associated with Team Rensi Motorsports. They have proven they can carry our message to NASCAR fans and be of great benefit to the Corps and its recruiting efforts," said Major General Chris Cortez, Commanding General, Marine Corps Recruiting Command. "Team Rensi's proven ability to take our recruiting message to the public, combined with a clear understanding of our marketing needs, make them a great partner in support of our recruiting efforts. Team Rensi Motorsports has been selected from a field of highly competitive teams to represent the Marine Corps in the 2004 Busch Grand National Series. The bidding and review process was rigorous and Team Rensi demonstrated they could provide a comprehensive, integrated and quality marketing program in support of our recruiting efforts."
