  • Ryan Reed to attempt Sprint Cup debut at Talladega: Roush Fenway Racing driver Ryan Reed will attempt to make his Sprint Cup debut at Talladega Superspeedway in the Alabama 500 on Oct. 23, behind the wheel of the #99 Lilly Diabetes/American Diabetes Association Ford Fusion. In 2011 - having been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes - the young driver was told he would never get behind the wheel of a race car again. Five years later, Reed - having already won at the famed Daytona International Speedway and qualified for the inaugural Chase for the XFINITY Championship - is looking to make history as the only driver actively managing his diabetes to race at the Sprint Cup level. Reed manages his diabetes through a strict diet and exercise program, the use of a wireless glucose monitoring device to provide in-race, real-time data, and consistent communication with his medical team in California. Reed is currently fourth in the NASCAR XFINITY Series Chase grid. In each of his three NASCAR XFINITY Series starts at the 2.66-mile track, Reed has qualified his Lilly Diabetes/American Diabetes Association Ford in the top-10 and has led a total of 37 laps. Reed will look to become the 19th driver to start a Sprint Cup race for Roush Fenway and legendary owner Jack Roush. The #99 was a mainstay at Roush Fenway from 1996 through 2014, being driven predominately by Jeff Burton and Carl Edwards. During that span, the car visited Victory Lane on 40 occasions and led more than 9,500 laps in Sprint Cup action.(Roush Fenway Racing), see an image of the car on the #99 team paint schemes page.(9-28-2016)

  • Life With Cancer to be promoted on Ragan's #23 at Dover: BK Racing announced that Inova Health System's Life With Cancer program will be promoted on David Ragan's #23 Life With Cancer Toyota Camry at Dover International Speedway on October 2.

Services include counseling and education; children and teen programs; information and resources; mind-body and wellness programs; and referrals. Life with Cancer is funded primarily by community contributions. "We are very excited to partner with BK Racing at the Citizen Soldier 400," said Sage Bolte, Ph.D., Executive Director of Inova Life with Cancer. "The face of cancer is changing. The rate of cancer diagnoses among young adults is growing, people are living longer, and cancer is evolving from a terminal disease to a chronic disease. Now, more than ever, it is critical to have resources to cope with the impacts of cancer close to home. NASCAR is an excellent platform to raise awareness of Life with Cancer's unique approach to cancer education and support."(BK Racing), see an image of the car on the #23 team paint schemes page.(9-27-2016)

  • E.J. Wade Construction returns to back DiBenedetto at Dover: BK Racing has announced that E.J. Wade Construction will return as primary sponsor on Matt DiBenedetto's #83 E.J. Wade Construction Camry at Dover International Speedway. The Citizen Soldier 400 will be E.J. Wade Construction's fifth race as sponsor of DiBenedetto's car. E.J.

  • Citizen Soldier Film sponsoring Smith at Dover: "Citizen Soldier," a feature film using real footage that follows an Oklahoma National Guard unit during its deployment to Afghanistan will be the primary sponsor for Regan Smith's #7 Chevrolet at Dover International Speedway on Sunday, October 2. Produced by Strong Eagle Media and distributed by Gravitas Ventures and Broad Green Pictures, "Citizen Soldier" is a modern day "Band of Brothers" and documents the Oklahoma Army National Guard's 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team's (nicknamed the "Thunderbirds") 2011 deployment. Set in one of the most dangerous parts of Afghanistan at the height of the surge, it is a heart-pounding, heartfelt grunt's-eye view of the war. The film tells the true story of an exceptional group of young soldiers and their life-changing tour of duty in Afghanistan, offering an excruciatingly personal look into modern warfare, brotherhood and patriotism. For Baldwin, this film hit home due to a relationship with United States Marine Corps Sgt. Derek Stevenin. Through Baldwin's friendship with Derek, Tommy understood the trials he faced with serving five deployments in just eight years. This past Memorial Day, TBR honored Derek and 17 of his fallen brothers on the #7 car at Charlotte Motor Speedway.(Tommy Baldwin Racing), see an image of the car on the #7 team paint schemes page.(9-22-2016)

  • Death Wish Coffee sponsoring Ty Dillon at Dover: Death Wish Coffee, "The World's Strongest Coffee," will serve as primary sponsor of Ty Dillon for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Dover International Speedway on Oct. 2, 2016. Death Wish Coffee, a privately-owned coffee manufacturer and distributor based in Albany, New York, will be featured on the #95 Chevrolet SS Circle Sport/Leavine Family Racing entry. The partnership marks Death Wish Coffee's first NASCAR sponsorship. Founded by Mike Brown in 2012, Death Wish Coffee was engineered in Brown's small coffee shop in Saratoga Springs, New York, after customers asked for a stronger, bolder brewed coffee. Death Wish's sales took off earlier this year when they won Intuit Quickbooks' Small Business Big Game Competition, beating out 15,000 small businesses to win a fully-funded 30-second commercial spot in the 2016 Super Bowl broadcast.(Richard Childress Racing), see an image of the car on the #95 team paint schemes page.(9-7-2016)

  • Red Cross featured on the #24 at Richmond: #24-Chase Elliott will pilot an American Red Cross-themed paint scheme for this weekend's event at Richmond International Raceway in an effort to encourage race fans to roll up their sleeves and give blood. The American Red Cross and 3M are entering their ninth year of the "Red Cross Racing" partnership. The goal is to increase visibility and promote the ongoing need for blood and platelet donations coming off of the critical summer months - a historically difficult time for donations. The design features vintage elements of the Red Cross brand to remind fans and donors of the long history of the Red Cross Blood Services program. Just one blood donation could help save up to three lives. To donate, visit redcrossblood.orgA> or download the Red Cross Blood Donor app. (Hendrick MotorsportsA>), see images of the car on the #24 team paint schemes page.(9-7-2016)

  • Mountain Dew scheme returns for Elliott: After the first trip of his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series career to Dover, earlier this season, #24-Chase Elliott walked away with a third-place finish.

In the October race, Elliott will have an extra kick in his step since he will be "fueled" by Mountain Dew. The citrus soda will serve as the primary sponsor on his #24 Chevy (Lionel Racing), see images of the scheme on the #24 Team Schemes page (8-24-2016)

  • Chicago dessert maker to sponsor Jeffrey Earnhardt at Darlington: After a twenty-year hiatus, Otter Pops, the delicious and fun freezer pops "like no otter," re-enter the world of auto racing at the Bojangles' Southern 500 race at the Darlington Raceway. Rookie Jeffrey Earnhardt will be driving the Otter Pops-sponsored car at NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event. The Bojangles' race is a "throwback race" and Earnhardt's Otter Pops car will be decked out in a blue and yellow color scheme matching his grandfather Dale Earnhardt Sr's, iconic racecar sponsored by Wrangler. "I'm really excited to have Otter Pops joining us at Darlington. I've been eating them since I can remember and you can't help but smile when you're eating an Otter Pop!" said Jeffrey Earnhardt. "It's hot this summer so I'm happy to have them being part of our team and look forward to eating a bunch of them at Darlington.(BusinessWire), see and image of the scheme on the #32 Team Schemes page (8-23-2016)

  • #78 to showcase retro look at Darlington to honor Auto-Owners Insurance 100th Anniversary: The timing of being the primary sponsor on Martin Truex's #78 Toyota for the Bojangles' Southern 500 throwback weekend Sept. 2-4 at Darlington Raceway offered a unique opportunity for Auto-Owners Insurance, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary. In the spirit of the throwback concept, Auto-Owners Insurance has opted for a retro look on Truex's race car that will pay tribute to the company's centennial milestone. The Lansing-Mich.-based company, which has been a staple in local communities since it was founded in 1916, is one of the nation's largest insurers. "We love the retro theme of the Darlington race and how it celebrates NASCAR's history," said Mary Pierce, Auto-Owners senior vice president of marketing and sales. "Auto-Owners really wanted to be part of this race as we celebrate our 100th year in business." Truex will also wear a special firesuit at the Darlington race, honoring independent insurance agents and the typical agent attire from back in 1916. "Darlington has just become an even more exciting race for our Furniture Row Racing team by having the retro Auto-Owners Insurance paint scheme on our Toyota Camry and also my fire suit," said Truex, who has already clinched a 2016 Chase playoff berth. "Auto-Owners has put a lot of creative thought in activating its primary sponsorship and we would like nothing more than to reward the 100-year-old company with a victory at one of NASCAR's most celebrated tracks." The Auto-Owners paint scheme and firesuit for the Darlington Raceway weekend is part of a larger company promotion called Fast, Friendly, Local. "Fast, Friendly, Local exemplifies the way Auto-Owners and our independent agents serve our customers," said Pierce. "In 1916 you had to walk into an insurance agency to buy insurance. Now, you can use modern technology to contact your independent Auto-Owners agent, but at the end of the day you are still buying insurance from an expert who lives in your community. That experience is part of the outstanding service Auto-Owners wants to deliver to our customers."(Furniture Row Racing PR), see image of the scheme on the #78 Team Schemes page (8-16-2016)

  • Virginia Tech featured on the #21 at Bristol and Martinsville: The Virginia Tech Athletics Department and Wood Brothers Racing announced that the NASCAR Sprint Cup race team will display a Virginia Tech paint scheme on its cars for upcoming races at Bristol Motor Speedway and Martinsville Speedway. The paint scheme is being used to promote both the school's academic programs and the athletics department as part of the department's "This is Home" marketing campaign. The Virginia Tech football team will play Tennessee at Bristol Motor Speedway on Saturday, Sept. 10 - a game that may break college football's all-time single-game attendance mark - and the car will be displayed at that game. The car will feature a primary color of maroon, with orange and white accent stripes. Ryan Blaney, who drives the Wood Brothers' #21 Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, will wear a fire suit and a helmet with Virginia Tech colors and the team will be wearing Virginia Tech shirts.(Wood Brothers Racing), see an image of the car on the #21 team paint schemes page.(8-15-2016)

Clemens manufacturing plant in honor of the organization receiving the General Motors Supplier of the Year award for the second consecutive year.

  • First appearance for Busch Light on the #4: Kevin Harvick's #4 Chevrolet SS for Stewart-Haas Racing will feature Busch Light for the first time during this weekend's 400-mile NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event at Richmond International Raceway. It marks the first appearance for a Busch brand on the #4 since February's season-opening non-points Sprint Unlimited during Speedweeks at Daytona. While Busch Beer has a rich racing history dating back to 1978, Busch Light, which was introduced to the public in 1989, will make its debut as a primary sponsor in the Sprint Cup Series. Busch Beer's history as a primary sponsor in the Sprint Cup Series dates back to the first race of the 1979 season, when NASCAR champion Cale Yarborough drove Junior Johnson's iconic #11 car to a third-place finish at Riverside International Raceway. Yarborough drove the #11 Busch Beer car for the entire 1979 and 1980 seasons. He went on to score 10 wins, 38 top-five finishes, 44 top-10s, 15 poles and led 4,130 laps over the 62-race span. This weekend marks the first of four appearances by Busch Light on the #4 Chevrolet SS in 2016. It will next appear on the #4 Chevrolet SS in the non-points-paying Sprint All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway, before appearing in July at Kentucky Speedway and Martinsville Speedway in October.(Stewart-Haas Racing), see an image of the car on the #4 team paint schemes page.(4-21-2016)

  • Credit One Bank debuts as primary sponsor on McMurray's #1: Credit One Bank will make its NASCAR Sprint Cup Series debut with Chip Ganassi Racing Teams as the primary partner on the #1 Credit One Bank Chevrolet SS.

The Credit One Bank signature blue paint scheme can also be seen on the #1 Chevrolet later this season at Daytona International Speedway and Dover Speedway (Oct. 2). Credit One Bank, introduced earlier this year as the "Official Credit Card of NASCAR", offers full spectrum credit card products, and is among the top 10 largest Visa credit card issuers in the United States. The Credit One Bank NASCAR credit card provides 1 percent cash back on eligible purchases and 2 percent cash back on purchases made at NASCAR.com.

For its sixth season in NASCAR, Drive to End Hunger will be primary sponsor of the #5 Chevrolet SS in two Sprint Cup races -- Aug. 20 at Bristol Motor Speedway and Nov. 6 at Texas Motor Speedway -- and featured as an associate sponsor of the team in all other events. Unprecedented for a social cause, Drive to End Hunger was launched by AARP and AARP Foundation in 2011 via a primary sponsorship of Hendrick Motorsports and four-time NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon. Utilizing education, engagement and collaboration, it has donated more than 34 million meals. The No. 5 Drive to End Hunger Chevy will feature a new paint scheme for the 2016 season. The design uses a black background with candy apple red and white accents, highlighted by a sleek matte finish.

  • Lionel taking over mass-distribution rights to NASCAR Diecasts: NASCAR licensee Lionel Racing has assumed mass-distribution rights for NASCAR's diecast collection, expanding its prior role that saw it previously sell to collectors. The 115-year-old toy maker, which became a licensee of the sanctioning body in 2010 and takes over from Spin Master, will now sell its NASCAR Authentics diecast collection at retailers like Wal-Mart, Target and Toys "R" Us. Lionel President Howard Hitchcock ... expects that the company will "easily" grow at a double-digit clip thanks to the new rights it has picked up. Hitchcock reported that even amid a time when people are increasingly spending discretionary income on digital possessions, demand for diecasts remains strong and the business "has been very stable." The company, which outside of NASCAR also has an exclusive deal with NHRA's John Force Racing and does some work in the sprint car space, is eyeing digital tie-ins that can be a part of diecasts in the future.(Sports Business Daily)(1-19-2016)

  • Mountain Dew sponsoring Earnhardt, Kahne, Elliott: Fans will be seeing a lot more Mountain Dew at the racetrack starting this season. Thanks to a three-year extension of PepsiCo's longstanding partnership with 11-time Sprint Cup Series champions Hendrick Motorsports, Mountain Dew is continuing as a primary sponsor of #88-Dale Earnhardt Jr. and welcoming drivers #5-Kasey Kahne and #24-Chase Elliott to its lineup beginning in 2016. The next phase of PepsiCo's racing program comes after 15 seasons of partnership with Hendrick Motorsports, including eight years of Earnhardt paired with Mountain Dew.

  • Lionel Racing announce best-selling diecast of 2015: #88-Dale Earnhardt Jr. and #24-Jeff Gordon didn't just have the top two die-cast cars of the year, they dominated the list of best-selling cars which was unveiled today by Lionel Racing - The Official Die-Cast of NASCAR. "Since we began publishing our top 10 list in 2011, we haven't seen such a dominant performance by two drivers as we have this year," said Howard Hitchcock, President of Lionel Racing. "Their sales numbers are a testament both to their impact on the sport and their ability to connect with the most passionate NASCAR fans - our collectors - in a big way." Earnhardt's new primary paint scheme drove sales of his #88 Nationwide Insurance die-cast to the top spot, while Gordon's wildly popular throwback, the #24 Axalta Rainbow Chevy, was the company's second biggest seller. "We knew when the Axalta Rainbow car was first announced that this would be one of the most important die-cast of the year to longtime fans of the sport," Hitchcock said. "I think we were just as thrilled as Gordon's fans were to see this iconic paint scheme on track in his final year of competition." The only driver to make the Lionel Racing list that wasn't named Earnhardt or Gordon was Chase Elliott. Elliott's #25 NAPA Chevy die-cast ranked a solid sixth. "Elliott's popularity with NASCAR fans is incredibly impressive when you consider he has competed in the sport for just two years," Hitchcock said. "That fan appeal is directly reflected in his sales numbers - his Cup debut car outsold several of our historically best-selling drivers." The 2015 Top 10 list is below:
    Dale Earnhardt Jr. #88 Nationwide Insurance Chevy
    Jeff Gordon. #24 Axalta Rainbow Chevy
    Dale Earnhardt Jr. #88 Mountain Dew/Dewshine Chevy
    Dale Earnhardt Jr. #88 Nationwide Insurance/Talladega Win Chevy
    Jeff Gordon #24 3M Chevy
    Chase Elliott #25 NAPA Chevy
    Jeff Gordon #24 Axalta/Homestead Chevy
    Dale Earnhardt Jr. #88 Nationwide Insurance/Stars and Stripes Daytona Win Chevy

    Jeff Gordon #24 AARP Member Advantages/Martinsville Win Chevy

  • Dale Earnhardt's Black GM Goodwrench Chevrolet Crowned "Lord of the Schemes": In the beginning, there were 64 paint schemes. Fourteen weeks and six rounds later, only one remains. And it's one of the most iconic paint schemes in NASCAR history. Dale Earnhardt's black GM Goodwrench Chevrolet (60.4% of the votes) beat out Earnhardt's yellow and blue Wrangler Chevrolet (39.6%) in the championship round of Lionel Racing's "Lord of the Schemes" bracket challenge. The challenge began on Wednesday, August 19 - on the heels of the announcement that Jeff Gordon would be bringing back his popular rainbow-designed car at Bristol Motor Speedway - and ended on Wednesday, November 18. More than 138,000 votes were received throughout the campaign's run. Lionel Racing, The Official Die-Cast of NASCAR, hosted the bracket challenge on its Facebook page. Earnhardt first slipped into the seat of the black #3 GM Goodwrench Chevrolet in the 1988 season opener at Daytona International Speedway. Although he had already won 31 races and claimed three of his seven titles by this point, some of his best racing still lay ahead. He piloted the car for the next 13 seasons before passing away after sustaining injuries in a last-lap accident in the 2001 Daytona 500. During this span, he won four championships (1990-91, 1993-94) and celebrated in Victory Lane 45 times, including his memorable 1998 DAYTONA 500 victory. At the conclusion of the race, as Earnhardt steered his car to Victory Lane, crew members from every team lined pit road to congratulate the already legendary driver on winning the "Great American Race" after 20 attempts. Before facing the #3 Wrangler Chevrolet in the final round, the winning paint scheme faced an admirable lineup of contenders. In the first round, the #3 GM Goodwrench Chevrolet went up against Tony Stewart's #20 The Home Depot/It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown Pontiac. It was then pitted against Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s #8 Budweiser/Intimidator Chevrolet in the second round. In the third round, the black GM Goodwrench paint scheme battled Davey Allison's #28 Havoline Ford followed by a match-up with Petty's #43 STP Pontiac. In the semifinals, the winning paint scheme squared off against another of Earnhardt's paint schemes - the #3 Goodwrench/Silver Select Chevrolet - before the championship round.(Lionel Racing)(11-20-2015)

  • Chase Elliott's paint scheme to be revealed Monday UPDATE:: Hendrick Motorsports driver Chase Elliott, who makes the jump to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series next season, will unveil his 2016 #24 NAPA AUTO PARTS Chevy SS paint scheme on "NASCAR RACE HUB" on FS1 Monday, Oct. 19, at 6:00pm/et The anticipated reveal is being simulcast in New York City's Times Square on the giant FOX video screen.

    UPDATE:Next season, Chase Elliott will pilot the #24 NAPA AUTO PARTS Chevy SS full-time in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. Monday evening on FOX Sports 1's "NASCAR RACE HUB," the Dawsonville, Georgia, native unveiled the brand new look that will hit the track for 24 races in 2016. "I think the car turned out great and hope everybody likes it," said Elliott, who thanked NAPA AUTO PARTS for letting him make "a few decisions" throughout the design process. "They were really open and willing to some of the ideas that we had. The light blue stripes actually came off of their drag car that Ron Capps runs. So it's kind of cool to keep it all in the family and I think it turned out pretty cool." Elliott was joined on set by Hendrick Motorsports owner Rick Hendrick, and their appearance was simulcast in New York City's Times Square on the giant FOX video screen. "I'm so excited," Hendrick said. "What he did in the XFINITY Series last year and winning the championship, and what we've seen out of him when he gets into the Cup cars now, I can't wait to see him take it on next year."(Hendrick Motorsports.
