Special FSU car set for rollout

7/3/2014

Florida State fans, start your engines.

Brian Vickers is ready to ride the No. 55 in the Coke Zero 400 Sunday at Daytona International Speedway with a special garnet-and-gold-themed car.

Plans were unveiled in April for Vickers to drive the car, celebrating the BCS national champions. Now, here it is, ready to roll onto the track.

Vickers is no stranger to driving sports-themed cars. Last year at a race in Kentucky, he had a special paint scheme to honor the Louisville men's basketball national championship team. Lead sponsor Aaron's and Michael Waltrip Racing also have honored Alabama and Auburn national champion teams with special paint schemes during races at Talladega Superspeedway four times since 2009.
