The recognition for FSU’s national championship run continues to roll in. The latest comes by way of NASCAR. Aaron’s and Michael Waltrip Racing plan to honor Florida State’s BCS National Championship by outfitting Brian Vickers’ No. 55 car with a Seminoles design for July’s Daytona race. Vickers will also wear an FSU uniform for the event.
Following are more details, courtesy of AaronsSports.com:
Florida State University’s trophy case holds lots of hardware, but none for motorsports.
Aaron’s and Brian Vickers plan to change that.
Vickers’ No. 55 Aaron’s Toyota will carry a special paint scheme honoring FSU’s 2013 BCS National Championship football team when the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races at Daytona International Speedway on July 5.
The garnet and gold paint scheme on the Michael Waltrip Racing Toyota will include the FSU BCS National Championship logo on the hood.
Vickers will also wear a special FSU driver uniform for the race.
The car, which you can see below, will be unveiled at FSU’s spring football game on Saturday, April 12.
