Nestled among the rolling hills of Ann Arbor, an hour northeast of Michigan International Speedway, sits one of the country’s finest institutes of higher education – the University of Michigan.
When NASCAR® returns to Michigan for the August 28 race, a lot of fans may be wearing maize and blue – the colors of the University of Michigan. The stands aren’t the only place those colors will be found that weekend.
In the race, Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s No. 88 Chevrolet SS will run a University of Michigan paint scheme. With two wins already at the two-mile track, Earnhardt Jr. could continue Michigan’s winning tradition.
Fans of the maize and blue, as well as Earnhardt Jr., won’t want to miss out on the No. 88 Axalta/University of Michigan Chevrolet SS die-cast.
