We now know what Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s No. 88 will look like in 2016 when it’s sponsored by Nationwide Insurance.

Late Tuesday morning, the team’s Twitter account posted a two-minute video of Earnhardt surprising a group of fans who thought they were just on a tour of Hendrick Motorsports’ headquarters. After the introductions, Earnhardt took the fans to the shop floor to see the car, which even Earnhardt hadn’t seen in person.

The car will be blue on the top of the car with silver numbering on the roof. The sides of the car will be silver with blue numbering.

Last week Hendrick announced that Earnhardt would also be sponsored by Axalta, Jeff Gordon’s current sponsor, for 13 races in 2016.
