With the IMSA 24 Hours of Daytona now behind us, racing fans can look ahead to the Daytona 500, which will kick off the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series season.
This year will see a number of changes in the top-tier NASCAR series. Not only is Chevrolet looking to return to form with its new Camaro ZL1 1LE body, some Chevrolet drivers will also run new or updated liveries this year, including Austin Dillon and Kyle Larson.
Dillon’s No. 3 Camaro ZL1 1LE will feature a new, vintage-look Tracker Off-Road scheme (above) with a black base and orange and silver accents. This scheme also features branding from Realtree and DOW which, like Tracker, we’ve seen on Dillon’s car in the past.
Larson, meanwhile, will run two different main paint schemes throughout 2020, with one featuring Advent Health as the title sponsor and the other headlined by Credit One. These are both variations of liveries we saw on Larson’s No. 42 Chevrolet for different races in 2019.
Larson’s Advent Health livery is not to be confused on track with the No. 77 Camaro ZL1 1LE of Ross Chastain. The 27-year old has partnered with Advent Health for the 2020 Daytona 500 and the Coca-Cola 600, both of which he will contest in a Chip Ganassi-prepared Chevrolet entered by Spire Motorsports. Chastain, who finished second in the NASCAR Truck Series last year, will race full-time in the Xfinity Series in 2020 in a Kaulig Racing Chevrolet.
Kurt Busch’s rather plain Monster livery for the No. 1 Camaro ZL1 1LE returns unchanged from 2019.
A number of other Ford and Toyota NASCAR Cup Series drivers will also use new or slightly updated race liveries in the 2020 Daytona 500 and throughout the season, including Ryan Newman, who welcomes Castrol’s familiar red, white and green livery back to the grid on his No. 6 Ford Mustang.
The 2020 NASCAR Cup Series season will kick off when the green flag waves for the 2020 Daytona 500 on Sunday, February 9th at 3:00 p.m. ET.
