Daytona Beach, FL---The Florida State Seminoles will be well represented come Saturday in the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona.
That's because Brian Vickers will be driving the #55 Aaron's Toyota with a Seminole National Championship paint scheme.
The car is painted in garnet, gold and white. The hood displays the national championship logo from the BCS title game.
It bears noting the Seminole head on that logo is the old one, before the logo head was updated.
This point scheme should be familiar to plenty of FSU fans, it was unveiled to the public at Florida State's spring football game in April.
Jason Hurst of our sister station in Tallahassee is down at Daytona today and he caught up with Vickers about driving the Seminole Toyota Camry Saturday night!
"All the races are important and there's always pressure to win all of them," says Vickers. "You want to win all of them. This weekend is very special, for a lot of reasons. It's Daytona. You always want to win Daytona. And now we have FSU on the car. Carrying the national champions banner is important you know. Those guys have accomplished a lot and what they've done as a team is incredible. And we'll honor that by putting the car in Victory Lane."
Vickers and team owner Michael Waltrip Racing are no strangers to this kind of display. Last year Vickers drove a car in Kentucky honoring Louisville's men's basketball title. And Waltrip's also raced cars at Talladega honoring Alabama and Auburn title teams.
