It’s no secret that two of the most popular sports in the Southeastern part of the country are college football and NASCAR. Now the two are coming together once again it appears.
Rick Ware Racing has partnered with both East Carolina and Clemson to showcase the two schools with some themed paint jobs on the #51 Chevy car driven by Cody Ware. The Pirates’ car was bumping and grinding at Sunday’s AAA 400 Drive for Autism while the Tigers will see their car celebrate the school’s recent College Football Playoff national title next week at the Pocono 400 and then later in the season at Darlington.

We’ve seen several schools get honored with paint jobs during NASCAR races but these are two recent ones are pretty slick paint jobs. The Carolinas are home to the bulk of stock car racing teams, media and organizations so ECU and Clemson are bound to have more than a few fans excited at seeing these designs out on the track.
