Helping to unveil the all-new paint scheme for the No. 22 Ford Fusion are Tom Wopat and John Schneider, stars of the popular Autotrader commercials which reunite the beloved Duke brothers from the hit TV show The Dukes of Hazzard.

"I speak for everyone at Bristol Motor Speedway when I say we are honored to welcome the Duke Boys to our track for what is sure to be a thrilling race weekend," said Jerry Caldwell, executive vice president and general manager for Bristol Motor Speedway. "We'd like to thank Autotrader for choosing our race track for the launch of their new paint scheme."

The new Autotrader No. 22 Ford Fusion, much like Autotrader's Dukes of Hazzard commercials, features a refreshed creative scheme that reflects the company's rebranding in late March. The new logo drops the ".com" and now includes an "AT" icon that draws inspiration from vehicle badges.

Throughout race weekend, the Autotrader Fanzone will be open to all race ticketholders. Guests will be invited to participate in "Car-aoke," a car-themed karaoke challenge, and can enter into a sweepstakes. The lucky sweepstakes winner will receive $25,000 towards the purchase of a vehicle through Autotrader.

Wopat and Schneider will appear in the Fanzone for a meet-and-greet with fans from 9:30 – 10:15 a.m. ET on Sunday, April 19. They will also serve as hosts of the Autotrader Pre-Race Concert, featuring Grammy-winning band Old Crow Medicine Show.
