MIKE ASHLEY'S NEW LOOK
Mike Ashley debuted a new paint scheme on Friday in Gainesville honoring the man who made his dream of driving a Funny Car a reality. The eye-catching paint scheme was applied by Mark Brown and Illusions Paint & Body.
"Evan has done so much for me and my team, I wanted to do something special for him. I talked with Mark Brown, the artist from Illusions in Tennessee who has painted all of my other cars, told him what I was looking for, and then let him loose," Ashley said. "This 'Fuel Doctor' shows Evan as a kind of 'racing-fuel mix-master' and is definitely another one of Mark's masterpieces.
"It's a mental thing for me, really. I feel great when I am in a car that looks cool, and I seem to perform well, too," he said.
