This weekend, Chase Elliott will debut the #24 Mountain Dew Chevrolet SS that was unveiled May 5 via the Hendrick Motorsports Facebook page. The black-and-green Mountain Dew scheme will also be piloted later this season by Elliott at Richmond International Raceway.
Johnson has won the storied All-Star Race a record four times. His first win came in 2003 when the race was called "The Winston." He won again in 2006 before earning back-to-back wins in 2012 and 2013. Last year at the event, Johnson and No. 48 team crew chief Chad Knaus tried strategy to win but ultimately finished 12th.
Maaco, North America's No. 1 bodyshop and a member of the Charlotte-based Driven Brands family, will make its debut in the All-Star Race on the No. 88 Axalta Chevrolet SS. The opportunity is thanks to a joint promotion with Maaco's paint partner Axalta Coatings Systems. The Maaco logo will have distinctive visibility on the Axalta paint scheme under the lights for the night race.
