Nearly every Sunday, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. can be found behind the wheel of a No. 17 Roush Fenway Racing Ford stock car. Saturdays, however, are reserved for screaming “Hotty Toddy! Gosh Almighty!” at the top of his lungs.
This Sunday, the two will mesh on the track at Talladega Superspeedway. The Mississippi native will don an Ole Miss helmet during the CampingWorld.com 500 that features the powder blue scheme.
Stenhouse’s fandom is very real. Not only does he constantly tweet about the team during Saturdays, he’s also converted girlfriend Danica Patrick. The two showed off their Ole Miss colors at a recent golf outing.
Wearing this helmet at any track would be a huge statement. But doing so in Alabama? That takes cojones. Especially after the 43-37 loss the Rebels handed the Tide earlier this season.
Powder blue will certainly stand out on Sunday. Let’s just hope that’s not a bad thing with Bama fans crowding the infield.
