Global Poker has announced a new partnership with Chip Ganassi Racing, meaning the online poker site will now be featured on 2004 NASCAR Cup Series Champion Kurt Busch’s no. 1 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.

Busch, who is currently competing in his 20th season, began driving with the Global Poker logo last weekend at the ISM Raceway in Phoenix and finished in seventh place.

“This new relationship between Global Poker and CGR is perfect for both brands," said Global Poker Founder and CEO Laurence Escalante. "Global Poker is the fastest growing poker site in the US, so teaming up with CGR in NASCAR, the fastest sport in town, makes perfect sense. Kurt Busch and the CGR team bring high octane thrills and excitement to millions of fans all season long, which perfectly fits with our business motto, ‘entertainment with a thrill’. I am confident that together we can create something truly memorable for both our players and their fans. Thanks to our friends at Oak View Group for bringing us together.”

Busch echoed Escalante’s excitement about the relationship before his last event.

“I’m looking forward to having Global Poker on the car starting this weekend at ISM raceway here in Phoenix. They are really excited about their first venture into NASCAR and I am glad that it is with our team.”

If you’re ready to start winning, don’t wait, sign up for Global Poker today and get started playing.


Join the action in the fastest-growing poker room in the world with Global Poker.

If you have been around poker players in the United States lately then you have probably heard about Global Poker. The new kid on the block as far as online poker sites go has taken the poker world by storm. After launching, Global Poker has cemented itself among the top 10 sites worldwide for player volume and as the fastest growing site for US players.

It doesn’t matter what your stake or preference is, Global Poker has something for you. Using their virtual currency of $weeps Cash players can enjoy both full ring and shorthanded games from stakes of $0.02-$0.04 right up to $10-$20 in both Texas hold’em and Omaha.

You may be asking yourself “what is $weeps Cash and what is it about them that has made Global Poker the most popular new site among US poker players?” The good news is that it is actually a simple process which more and more players are using to play for real cash prizes.

You can jump onto the Global Poker website and purchase a virtual currency called Gold Coins. You can then use these Gold Coins to enter into ring games, sit n go’s and tournaments. Gold Coins work much the same as play money chips on other poker sites, meaning that you can accumulate them and use them in different games but they can never be redeemed for real money.

As a way to promote the sale of Gold Coins, players are given bonus sweepstakes prizes by way of $weeps Cash with every Gold Coin purchase that they make. The $weeps Cash can be used to buy into the $weeps Cash tournaments and ring games, however, any of these that are accumulated or won can be cashed out as real cash prizes.
