'Talladega Nights' paint scheme for Kurt Busch race car

Kurt Busch's Phoenix Racing No. 51 Chevrolet will sport a Ricky Bobby "ME" paint scheme from the movie "Talladega Nights: the Ballad Of Ricky Bobby" for the Aaron 499.

In the Will Ferrell comedy, NASCAR racer Ricky Bobby doesn't have a sponsor and improvises by using ME and a cougar logo.  After Busch's team was lacking a sponsor, his girlfriend suggested using the Ricky Bobby theme.

After two months of negotiations, the team got approval to use the paint scheme from the film's creators.

Life imitates art with a good cause. The car will also carry the words "I Wanna Go Fast" on the rear of the car to promote the Armed Forces Foundation.


A message on the decklid will read: "Text AFF to 50555 to donate $5".


  1. Shake and bake, baby. You go Kurt
