LOOK: Clemson’s football team is getting its own NASCAR paint job – CBS sports.com (blog)
Clemson may have just won a national championship, but you haven’t really made it as a football powerhouse until you get the NASCAR paint job.
Rick Ware Racing announced that its No. 51 car will feature a Clemson paint job for two upcoming races in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. The first race will be at the Pocono 400 on June 11 and the second race will be Bojangles Southern 500 in Darlington, South Carolina on Sept. 3.
“We’re appreciative of Rick Ware Racing offering this opportunity for tremendous exposure of our National Championship mark during the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series,” said Clemson athletic director Dan Radakovich. “We look forward to seeing this great design on the track at Pocono and Darlington.”
So what does a Clemson race car look like?
Now if only they’d let Dabo Swinney drive it during the race.
