The last time the NASCAR Cup Series competed at the Atlanta Motor Speedway, Ryan Blaney took the checkered flag for his fifth career Cup Series victory. The win on Sunday, March 21, also extended his streak to five consecutive years with a Cup Series triumph.
New Advance Auto Parts Paint Scheme
Blaney will trade his red-and-yellow Advance Ford Mustang for a black-and-yellow No. 12 resembling the No. 2 car made famous by legendary Team Penske driver, Rusty Wallace. A winner of 55 Cup Series races, Wallace drove the iconic black-and-yellow No. 2 (nicknamed “Midnight”) for Roger Penske from 1991-1996.
Blaney’s newly designed No. 12 Ford features Advance “Same Day” branding. A leading automotive aftermarket parts retailer, Advance offers Same Day services, including free curbside and in-store pickup within 30 minutes of placing your order. Advance also was the first in the industry to offer free same day delivery in select markets across the U.S.
The paint scheme was unveiled Thursday, July 8, in a video featuring Blaney making a delivery to Wallace’s shop. Watch the minute-long video here on YouTube.

“You always like returning to a track where you’re the most recent winner. Obviously Atlanta is a really unique track with worn out asphalt and tons of character. Certainly look forward to racing there with the new Advance Same Day services paint scheme. Advance is continuing to provide better ways to serve the car enthusiast and exciting to have them use NASCAR and our No. 12 Mustang to push the message to consumers. We had a lot of fun shooting the social video to unveil the scheme with Rusty Wallace a few weeks ago. He made the black and yellow scheme famous in NASCAR driving for Roger Penske, and won at Atlanta Motor Speedway in 1993 to cap off a 10-win season, so hopefully we can add another victory on Sunday.”
