Toyota Stock Car Gets Wrapped

Video / Comments

How do they get the sponsors' logos so artfully applied to a racing car's body? Like this.

Vinyl wraps aren't just for modified road cars. They're also the method a growing number of racing teams use to emblazon their cars with their sponsors' logos. For record-setting race winner Kyle Busch and his #18 Toyota Camry NASCAR Sprint Cup racer, that sponsor is M&Ms, which calls for a rather colorful livery. In this time-lapse video, the Joe Gibbs Racing team hand-applies the pre-printed vinyl wrap onto the matte-black Camry stock car with considerable skill, stretching, cutting and molding the vinyl to the car's every contour.

It's a heck of a thing to watch coming together, taking an hour and forty minutes in real time but compressed to less than three and a half minutes for your viewing pleasure. Check it out in the clip below.
