It was announced Wednesday afternoon William Byron will honor Rick Hendrick’s late son Ricky Hendrick at Darlington Raceway on September 2nd with a special paint scheme.

The paint scheme is from Hendrick’s only career win in the Camping World Truck Series at Kansas Speedway in 2001.

“It will be so special running this car in honor of Ricky,” Byron said on social media. “I hope to make his family and everyone involved proud.”

Hendrick tragically passed away in a plane crash in 2004.
