Seeing red: Jimmie Johnson’s No. 48 Chevy gets a new look for Texas (VIDEO)


Don’t worry if you do a double-take while spotting Jimmie Johnson’s No. 48 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet on the track this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway.

Jimmie’s familiar blue-and-white look has gone away for the AAA Texas 500, so he and the team can honor the 260,000+ employees of main sponsor Lowe’s Home Improvement Warehouse.

As those employees wear a red vest as part of their uniform, the car has gone to a red-and-white scheme with just a hint of the regular blue on the hood. It’s different, but it’s still pretty sweet.

Now, the folks at Hendrick Motorsports have been kind enough to release a time-lapse video of how the No. 48 was transformed at the team’s shop.

Try not to blink, you might miss something.
