Scott Speed running pirate car at Vegas


Scott Speed and Leavine Family Racing is hoping to attract would-be sponsors of the No. 95 Ford Fusion with a skull and cross bones.

Speed will compete in the Koblat Tools 400 in a car which the team hopes will help “Surrender the Sponsor” and provided needed cash for the race team.

The idea was thought of by Speed and the team will be selling t-shirts this weekend at the racetrack and later online which feature a skull and cross bones.

“It is exciting just to see the hype about the No. 95,” Speed said. “We are not trying to make this a money stunt; we’re just trying to draw attention to our car. Hopefully, a potential sponsor will see this and want to be teamed up with us.

“There is no way I could have pulled off this paint scheme with any other team, which is why it was so appropriate for LFR – they are up for anything.”

In the first two races of the season Speed has finished 23rd at Daytona and 41st at Phoenix.
