Dega is probably my favorite track of all time. It was the first cup race I ever attended.

I reckon Missouri fans have a reason to hate Clint Bowyer...

In April of 2010, the Alabama Crimson Tide’s 2009 BcS championship was honored with a paint scheme on David Reutimann‘s Toyota (pictured) at NASCAR’s Talladega spring race.

The next year at the same track, Auburn 2010 title team was honored in a similar manner. This year, it’s the Tide’s (left) turn yet again… with a very, very cool twist.

This Sunday at Talladega, a track that definitely has SEC speed, a Crimson Tide paint scheme will adorn the No. 15 Michael Waltrip Racing Toyota driven by Kansas native and lifelong Jayhawk fan Clint Bowyer, who has won the past two fall races at this weekend’s track.

“I’m a pretty big KU fan,” Bowyer said according to SPEED.com. “I think everybody knows that. But the Alabama partnership came along with [sponsor] Aaron’s, and the SEC partnership that they have after they had Alabama on it, and winning the national championship this year. Certainly [I’m] a KU fan, but respect all athletics and certainly respect what they’ve accomplished in the past years. It’s going to be fun to have the Alabama colors for one day.”
