Discount Tire will take 13 races on the No. 2, while taking two playoff races for Blaney in the No. 12 Mustang according to the sponsor.
Blaney himself has taken the Discount Tire colors to victory lane before during his time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.
No paint scheme was shared however it is expected that the No. 2 Discount Tire Ford will remain largely the same compared to its design of the last few seasons with Brad Keselowski.
