Brian Vickers' No. 55 car will have a special look when he drives in the Sprint Cup race at Daytona on July 5.
Vickers will drive a garnet-and-gold painted Toyota that will honor Florida State's national title and have a BCS national championship logo on the hood. He will also wear a special FSU driver uniform for the race.
''Everyone in America knows about Florida State's tradition of success especially in athletics,'' Vickers said.
