Spire Motorsports is known for their No. 77 Chevrolet Camaro, but this weekend at Michigan International Speedway they’ll have a new number and a new look. The team will run the No. 74 Fake Steak Chevrolet Camaro with Reed Sorenson behind the wheel.
Fake Steak? What is that? It’s a fictional company from the upcoming Netflix television show involving NASCAR titled The Crew, which will star comedian Kevin James.
The team unveiled the scheme with a Tweet mentioning James on Tuesday.

As you notice, the last name on the back window is not Sorenson, but rather it lists Martin.
Freddie Stroma will be the actor cast as the driver Jake Martin for the fictional Bobby Spencer Racing Team in the show. According to NASCAR.com, the car will be filmed by NASCAR during the race weekend at Michigan for footage to be used on the series, which will debut in 2021.
