NASCAR: Fans can pick which car Ryan Blaney runs at Daytona

Fans can pick which BODYARMOR paint scheme Ryan Blaney runs in the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series regular season finale at Daytona International Speedway.

For the final time in the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series season, Team Penske’s Ryan Blaney is slated to run a BODYARMOR paint scheme on his #12 Ford, and he is set to do it in the 26th and final race of the regular season at Daytona International Speedway, the Coke Zero Sugar 400, on Saturday, August 29.

The 2020 season is BODYARMOR’s third year as a primary sponsor at Roger Penske’s organization, and their partnership with the 26-year-old Blaney dates back to the 2017 season.

Blaney has run a BODYARMOR paint scheme in three races so far this season, doing so for the first time at Auto Club Speedway in early March when he ran a tribute scheme to the late Kobe Bryant. The five-time NBA champion was an investor in BODYARMOR and served on the company’s board of directors.

Blaney then ran a regular BODYARMOR paint scheme in the second of two races at Charlotte Motor Speedway in late May and then again in the non-points-paying All-Star Race at Bristol Motor Speedway earlier this month.

But for the regular season finale, the American independently owned sports drink’s paint scheme on Blaney’s car will look quite a bit different thanks to a unique opportunity, titled “Pick the Paint”.

Popular graffiti artist Amuse126 has created custom designs for three of BODYARMOR’s most popular flavors. Those three flavors are Strawberry Banana, Tropical Punch and Orange Mango.

Fans and consumers have the opportunity to vote on their design favorite leading up to the 160-lap race around the four-turn, 2.5-mile (4.023-kilometer) high-banked oval in Daytona Beach, Florida, and the winning design will be on Blaney’s #12 Ford for this race.

Voting is currently open but will end on Tuesday, August 4, and the winning design will be announced on Friday, August 7. Additionally, all voters will be automatically entered to win a limited edition t-shirt of the winning design. Visit BODYARMOR’s website for more details about the sweepstakes rules.

Fortunately for Blaney, who sits in third place in the championship standings, there won’t be a ton on the line for him in the regular season finale since he has already secured a playoff spot with his victory at Talladega Superspeedway in June.

But be sure to tune in to NBC at 7:30 p.m. ET for the live broadcast of the Coke Zero Sugar 400 from Daytona International Speedway to check out his unique paint scheme and to see who the last few drivers in the 16-driver playoff field will be.
