BOSTON (AP) — Carl Edwards has got a new paint job for his No. 99 car at this weekend’s NASCAR race in New Hampshire.
Edwards will be driving a baseball-themed car in honor of his visit to New England. The Ford will sport several Boston Red Sox team logos and red stitches like a baseball.
The promotion is the first for Roush Fenway Racing since the owners of the Red Sox invested in NASCAR.
The car was on dispaly at Fenway Park on Thursday morning.
“It’s our intention to be the Northeast’s NASCAR team,” owner Jack Roush said. “There’s some pressure to perform in front of the home crowd. Everybody will be at their very best.”

Funny how it's come to this. When they announced the deal originally, John Henry basically came out and said he's in the schwag business, and Nascar was a hot schwag market. Bobbleheads, diecasts, and poser jackets are a multi billion dollar business, I guess. Spectators...

I've already ordered my 1:24 and 1:64 dicast Red Sox model.

The Carl Edwards pink Sox thong was on backorder so Mrs. B will have to wait.
