AJ Allmendinger is driving the No. 51 car for Phoenix Racing at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday night.

The car is a un-sponsored Chevrolet with the same paint scheme that Neil Bonnett was driving when he was killed during practice for the 1994 Daytona 500.

Sponsoring Bonnett at that time was “Country Time Lemonade” but, they will not be sponsoring Allmendinger this weekend.
