Just days after Michigan head football coach Jim Harbaugh was spotted at a NASCAR event alongside legendary NFL coach Joe Gibbs, Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s team unveiled a new, Wolverines-themed pain job that will debut at Michigan International Speedway in August.
Earnhardt Jr.’s No. 88 car Michigan-themed car will hit the race track for the Pure Michigan 400. Axalta Racing and JR Motorsports shared the unveiling on Twitter.
