We’re only three days removed from a Sprint Cup race at Michigan International Speedway, but the next one is only two months away. We already know what car Dale Earnhardt Jr. will drive in it.

On Tuesday, Earnhardt’s sponsor, Axalta, revealed his paint scheme for the Aug. 28 Pure Michigan 400. Earnhardt’s No. 88 Chevrolet will be covered in maize and blue as it will be co-sponsored by the University of Michigan.

If you squint it looks eerily similar to the classic Wrangler paint scheme Dale Earnhardt Sr. drove in the 1980s and that Earnhardt Jr. used twice in his Xfinity Series career.
