Carvana, Jimmie Johnson Unveil ‘Petty Blue’ Design for 2024 Daytona 500

Jimmie Johnson and Carvana will compete in the NASCAR Cup Series season-opener at Daytona International Speedway with a brand-new look, honoring Richard Petty and the Petty family’s illustrious racing history.

A co-owner of LEGACY MOTOR CLUB, Johnson will have his No. 84 Toyota Camry XSE wrapped in ‘Petty Blue’ for The Great American Race in February, with a paint scheme designed to match the iconic Chrysler Plymouth that Petty won the 1964 Daytona 500 in.

“Seeing my family honored in such a significant way by another NASCAR legend, Jimmie Johnson, is a humbling experience,” said Richard Petty, “The King” and co-owner of LEGACY MOTOR CLUB. “It’s a testament to the enduring impact of the Petty family on racing and we couldn’t be prouder to tie our storied history to Jimmie’s success and the future of this great sport.”

Having been present since the founding of NASCAR in 1949, the Petty family has arguably become the most well-known family unit in the sport. It all started with Lee Petty, whose son Richard Petty began racing shortly thereafter. His son Kyle, and late grandson Adam also continued to carry on the tradition.

Now, even three-quarters of a century later, Thad Moffitt, the grandson of Richard Petty, is set to compete full-time in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, carrying on the family legacy of NASCAR racing.

“The honor of my recent NASCAR Hall of Fame induction has given me time to reflect on my racing career that spans more than 21 years, and on the people that have been pivotal to my journey both on and off the track,” said Johnson. “My relationship with Richard, Kyle, and the whole Petty family is so meaningful to me and my goal was to celebrate their enduring LEGACY with this design.”

Carvana, an industry leader and pioneer in the purchase and sale of used cars, played an integral role in making this happen, working alongside both LEGACY MOTOR CLUB and team co-owner Jimmie Johnson.

Earlier this month, the company announced that it would be returning to support Johnson in three NASCAR Cup Series events, beginning with the season-opener at Daytona International Speedway.

Petty, a long-time NASCAR Cup Series team owner, now serves as an advisor for LEGACY MOTOR CLUB, which fields a pair of full-time entries at NASCAR’s top level for John Hunter Nemechek and Erik Jones.

“Our Petty Blue-inspired paint scheme is not merely a tribute, but a statement of our respect and admiration for the Petty family and their significant contributions to racing over the past 75 years,” said Ryan Keeton, Carvana Co-Founder and Chief Brand Officer. “The close collaboration with Jimmie and LEGACY MOTOR CLUB has allowed us to create a design that not only resonates with the rich history of the sport, but also aligns with Carvana’s innovative spirit.”
