We’re now just a few weeks away from the Great American Race — the Daytona 500. NASCAR’s 2020 season will be underway with its biggest race of the year coming first, as per usual tradition.
Austin Dillon, the 2018 winner of the Daytona 500, revealed his paint scheme for the upcoming race on Wednesday. The famed No. 3 will once again sport the Bass Pro Shops colors, specifically promoting Tracker Off-Road.
The first look of the Daytona 500 car is below.

Has a little Dale Sr. flare, doesn’t it?
Dillon is looking to rebound from a dreadful 2019 season, which saw him record zero top five finishes and just six top tens. After winning a race in each of the 2017 and 2018 seasons, Dillon and the entire RCR cup program took a step in the wrong direction last season.
Now with Tyler Reddick replacing Daniel Hemric in the No. 8 entry, we’ll see if this team can improve as a whole.
