Chevy UniFirst paint scheme No. The new 9 will prominently feature the company’s signature green and racing-inspired black and white contrasts. Refreshing and dynamic, the vibrant custom green design is showcased throughout the car’s exterior. Elliott and the rest of No. 9 Hendrick Motorsport racing teams will also wear fire suits that complement the design of the new UniFirst car and feature company colors and logos.
In 2022, newly designed “Next Gen” race cars hit the track for all NASCAR Cup Series teams. UniFirst No. The 9 has been upgraded to the new Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 design, which includes a number of visual and technological improvements. Aesthetically, the car has stylish new 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels, a new aerodynamic hood and redesigned side skirts. The Next Gen Camaro also fits perfectly with the design of the Chevrolet model commonly seen on national highways.
Underneath the surface, NASCAR’s Next Gen cars offer a new steel chassis, reworked sequential transmission, revised independent rear suspension and an innovative fueling system. All together, they are the most important update to NASCAR car design in more than a decade.
“I’m really excited for fans to see the new bright green and white UniFirst design on the Chevrolet No. 9 us as we enter the track in Phoenix next month,” said Elliott. “We’ve had a lot of fun and success with UniFirst over the last few seasons, and I look forward to getting this Camaro to winning ways in 2022.”
Following a championship-winning 2020 season, Elliott gave fans even more excitement in 2021. He finished the year with a pair of wins and 21 top 10 finishes, culminating in the driver earning one of only four spots in the NASCAR Cup Series Championship last November 4. During his three races at UniFirst No. 9 Chevy in 2021, Elliott collected three top 10 results, including a pair of fifth finishes. After the season, Elliott also earned the NASCAR Most Popular Driver award for the fourth season in a row.
Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 UniFirst No. 9 will debut its season in March 13 at Phoenix Raceway. Will later hit the track at Kansas Speedway on May 15 and August 7 at the Michigan International Speedway. UniFirst will also be the sponsor of car partner No. 9 for all other races throughout the 2022 campaign.
“The Next Gen No. 9 revision of Chevy’s UniFirst takes UniFirst Racing to a whole new level with our most dynamic paint scheme to date,” said David Katz, UniFirst’s Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Chase Elliott and Hendrick Motorsport continue to impress with their efforts on and off the track, and we are excited for another stunning NASCAR Cup Series season.”
