“We are delighted to utilize our long-term partnership with Hendrick Motorsports to showcase our Global Automotive Color of the Year by running the No. 24 Axalta Sea Glass paint scheme in this year’s DAYTONA 500,” said Wade Robinson, the managing director at Axalta Global Motorsports in a team release.
In addition to the beautiful blue base, will be the standard Axalta flames, but they will be colored in a gradient of orange to yellow.
Byron scored five poles a season ago, including one at the Daytona 500 and is zeroing in on his first-career NASCAR Cup Series won as he enters his third season in the series. Byron is hoping to collect the sport’s biggest prize as his first career win.
“The No. 24 is always one of the coolest cars on the track,” Byron said. “The Axalta Sea Glass color brings the paint scheme to a whole new level that is guaranteed to stand out from the others. Hopefully we can start the 2020 season on a high note and put Axalta’s Global Automotive Color of the Year in the Victory Lane at the DAYTONA 500.”
