Busch returned as an official NASCAR sponsor following an 11-year hiatus after signing a multi-year agreement earlier in 2018, having first sponsored the top level of NASCAR back in 1978 and its comeback revived the Busch pole award.

The driver who takes the most pole positions in 2018 earns the trophy, which will now be designed in a competition.

“Busch Beer has returned to our roots with the addition of the Busch Pole Award in 2018,” said Daniel Blake, senior director of U.S. value brands for Anheuser-Busch.

“We started our involvement in NASCAR with the Busch Pole Award in 1978 and now we want to celebrate with our fans by asking them to design the year-end Busch Pole Award trophy.

"Not only do they get to design the Busch Pole Award, but we’ll bring them to the 2018 NASCAR Champion’s Week to present it to the driver with the most Busch Pole Awards of the season.

"We’re excited to see the passion, creativity and enthusiasm race fans have as they design the Busch Pole Award trophy.”

Submissions can be made between May 10-28, with an entry allowed to be "in any form, including but not limited to, napkin sketches, computer-drafted designs or even a photo of a hand-crafted trophy on Twitter using #BuschPoleContest by midnight on May 28."

Busch will then select three entries with a vote on Twitter to declare a winner, with the victor then revealed on July 7 at Daytona International Speedway.

The winner will earn a trip to the 2018 NASCAR Champion’s Week.

The rules and a step-by-step process can be found HERE.

The lasting NASCAR legacy after Dale Earnhardt’s death

On February 18, 2001, seven-time NASCAR Cup champion Dale Earnhardt – the fearless ‘Intimidator’ – was in his element at Daytona International Speedway. While his own DEI team’s cars ran 1-2 towards the finish line, his famed #3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet Monte Carlo was playing rear gunner to block any late runs from the chasing pack. As the cars tore through Turns 3 and 4 on that fateful final lap, Earnhardt maintained the strongarm tactics that encapsulated his persona… but his actions in those moments sadly proved to be his last.
