2015 marked the start of a partnership between Nationwide, a mutual insurance company founded in 1926, and NASCAR’s most popular driver, Dale Earnhardt Jr. In the 2016 season, Nationwide’s partnership shifted to a primary role with the No. 88 Hendrick Motorsports entry. Special paint scheme liveries for that NASCAR Cup Series season included Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
which ran at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California and Nationwide Patriotic
honoring Lance Corporal Aaron Reed which made its appearance at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in the Coca-Cola 600. Also making its first appearance was the Nationwide Children’s Hospital
livery which showcased both the hospital and program’s charitable donors. The special paint scheme ran under the lights at the Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, KY.
