Denny Hamlin's No. 11 Toyota has changed its paint scheme for Sunday's race at Michigan to the one that was used when Jason Leffler drove the car in 2005.
The tribute paint scheme was Hamlin's idea and approved by Joe Gibbs Racing and sponsor FedEx.
Leffler was killed in an accident Wednesday night at a dirt track in New Jersey. He was 37. Leffler drove 19 Sprint Cup Series in 2005 with JGR as it launched the No. 11 as its third team.
The car was rewrapped by the team Saturday night into the primarily white paint scheme that was used when Leffler drove the No. 11.
