In last year’s Daytona 500, the Go Fas Racing team unveiled the most incredible livery of all-time when it plastered a giant image of driver Corey LaJoie’s face on the front. Equal parts hilarious and horrifying, the facecar was born.
Now, in 2020, the facecar is back… but with a twist. Nascar got back to racing weeks ago, providing a glimpse as to how most motorsport is likely going to look this year – no fans, team staff and circuit personnel practising social distancing, and lots of people wearing face masks…
…Including LaJoie’s facecar.

Yup, LaJoie will run this very 2020 livery during this Wednesday’s Cup race at Martinsville Speedway.
Let’s hope wearing the mask doesn’t cause his car to overheat – those things can get pretty hot – although it should at least make bump drafting a bit safer…
