NASCAR Driver Unveils “Cop Car” Paint Job for Halloween — But No Tricks Here, It Will Honor Fallen Officers

by Jennifer KernsOctober 28, 2020

NASCAR driver Josh Bilicki and sponsor Insurance King has expanded their partnership with The Wounded Blue — the only national organization dedicated to assisting injured officers — and with their partnership have upped the ante on cool paint schemes to honor the men and women in blue.

The trio has just unveiled a new paint job that transforms Bilicki’s #7 Chevrolet Camaro into a police car, complete with red and blue lights to make the vehicle appear as if it’s laying chase to other cars on the track. Some fans may not know it, but NASCAR actually began as bootleggers outrunning the police.

But it’s not all fun and games this Halloween.

Bilicki’s NASCAR vehicle will pay serious tribute to fallen officers.

“We originally planned on being at Martinsville because it’s Halloween weekend, and we knew we could run a unique paint scheme,” said Dan Block, President of Insurance King. “We came up with the idea to make the car look like a cop car because of NASCAR’s history. However, when we partnered with The Wounded Blue, we ended up going one step further and paying tribute to officers who lost their lives in 2020.”

The vehicle will pay tribute to 234 officers who have lost their lives so far n 2020 — a figure which is nearly two-fold over last year in 2019. The increase is attributed mostly to COVID-19 but The Wounded Blue’s founder Lt. Randy Sutton pointed out that assaults on police officers are also on the rise this year.

 

The new “cop car” theme can be seen on the track at this weekend’s NASCAR Cup Series at Martinsville Speedway this Sunday, November 1st. Diecuts of Bilicki’s standard car are available for sale and a portion of the proceeds benefit The Wounded Blue to help men and women injured in the line of duty: https://www.circlebdiecast.com/store/Search.aspx?SearchTerms=Josh%20Bilicki
