NASCAR has some of the most iconic liveries in all of motorsport: There’s Jeff Gordon and the DuPont rainbow; Richard Petty with STP’s red and blue; Dale Earnhardt and GM Goodwrench’s black, red and silver. But they can all step aside, because we have a new champion in town. Tyler Reddick, you can drive that Dolly Parton livery right into victory lane.
It’s rare to find me at a loss for words, but my goodness. I’m speechless. I have lost all function of my vocal cords because this livery is so good. Let’s just sit here and admire it for a second while I wipe the tears of joy from my eyes:

Dolly Parton is a formidable empress of country music, and has been for decades. But she’s more than that. She can be anything you need her to be. I’m not even a fan of country music, but I still love me some Dolly Parton.
Even better is the fact that this car is entirely Dolly sponsored, including not just her record label but also the full spectrum of Parton-associated properties, from her theme park, her resort and spa, her Imagination Library book gifting program, and at least three other stampede/country/pirate-themed attractions.
The livery will be decking out Tyler Reddick’s No. 2 Xfinity Series car for Saturday’s Alsco 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway, as per RCR Racing’s press release. Reddick finished second in last week’s Xfinity race at Texas Motor Speedway and was last year’s champion, if you were curious who is deigned lucky enough to run Parton’s colours.
