Danica Patrick’s car, diecast will honor 9-11 victims
By Chris Olds | BSCM Editor
Danica Patrick‘s No. 7 Chevy will sport nearly 3,000 stars on its black paint scheme for a Sept. 9 NASCAR race, according to images released Tuesday by Lionel NASCAR Collectables.
The Sept. 9 Nationwide Series race will take place at Richmond International Speedway in Richmond, Va., just two days before the 10th anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attacks. Each star is to represent those who died during the attacks.
As with most of her cars, there will be diecast replicas made for the No. 7 GoDaddy.com/GetYour.net with a 1:24 scale Elite model selling for $129.95.
Patrick will not be the lone driver with a 9-11 paint scheme that weekend as Greg Biffle, Jamie McMurray, Josh Wise and Tony Stewart also are set to drive American-themed stock cars.
