As of right now, Tuesday evening, these fellas haven’t even ran last weekend’s race at the Texas Motor Speedway, but if the rain ever clears up and we can get to the checkered flag, it’ll be on to Martinsville.
And for this Sunday’s Cup Series playoff race, the Xfinity 500 at Martinsville, driver Josh Bilicki will be running a brand new paint scheme to honor fallen police officers. His #7 Camaro will be made to look like a police car, feature the ‘Protect and Serve” slogan, and also have 234 stars on the hood to honor the brave men and women that lost their lives in the line of duty this year.
“This weekend at Martinsville Speedway, we’re honoring all of the police officers who lost their lives in 2020 with this special Insurance King / The Wounded Blue paint scheme. Featured on the hood will be 230+ stars in remembrance of those fallen officers.”
According to TMZ, Bilicki and his sponsor, Insurance King, have been working with The Wounded Blue organization, which works to provide relief to officers who have been injured in the line of duty.
“We came up with the idea to make the car look like a cop car because NASCAR began with bootleggers outrunning the police,” Insurance King president Dan Block said. “However, when we partnered with The Wounded Blue, we ended up going one step further with this paint scheme and are dedicating this design to each police officer that lost their life in 2020.”The Xfinity 500 gets underway this coming Sunday at 1:00pm CT.
