Kyle Busch Motorsports Marketing and Accounting Internship by Catherine Parks
Marketing and Accounting Internship
Kyle Busch Motorsports is a corporation that began in order for
Sprint Cup driver, Kyle Busch, to hone in his racing skills by
purchasing his own Legends car in 2003. Over the past ten years
the company has expanded and now is the home for the No. 77
Toyota Camry that competes in the Nationwide Series as well as
the No. 18, No. 51, and No. 54 Tundra’s that race in the NASCAR
Camping World Truck Series.
Over the summer I worked at the new 77,000 square foot green
race shop located in Mooresville, North Carolina. For ten weeks I
served as an intern focusing on the company’s marketing and
accounting initiatives. During my time as intern I primarily ran the
race shop’s 2,000 square foot retail store including pricing and
managing inventory within the company’s software as well as
numerous other projects. My time spent at Kyle Busch Motorsports
allowed me to form new friendships and relationships that will
remain throughout my professional life. The experiences and skills
that I gained through my time working with incredible colleagues
further cemented my future plans within the realm of finance.
The final portion of my summer project included participation in
Commonwealth Financial Network’s Advanced Topics Symposium.
This three-day conference allowed me to sit in on lectures and
discussions that will foster my ability to be a successful financial
advisor in the future. Classes included instruction on financial
software, markets, and overall work skills. Participation in this
prestigious conference allowed me to gain knowledge of financial
services and ignited my excitement for working in the field of
finance in the future!
