Ryan Preece, Chase Briscoe Showcase Talladega Nights Schemes

Chase Briscoe and Ryan Preece brought back a set of classic paint schemes NASCAR fans will remember from the famous movie Talladega Nights: the Ballad of Ricky Bobby. Stewart-Haas Racing announced the deal on Monday, Sept. 25 on a promotional video similar to a scene in the racing comedy.

Briscoe will feature Cal Naughton Jr.’s (played by John C. Reilly) Old Spice scheme, bringing Old Spice back to the No. 14 for Stewart-Haas Racing for the first time since 2010 when current owner and then driver Tony Stewart represented the brand.

Preece will carry the Wonder Bread brand on his No. 41 Ford Mustang in homage to No. 26 driven by Will Ferrell’s character Ricky Bobby. Wonder Bread made an appearance at Talladega with Furniture Row Racing and Kurt Busch in the fall 2013 race.
