NASCAR drivers will pay tribute to Kobe Bryant at Auto Club 400


The public memorial service for Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and the others who tragically died with them was on Monday, but the sports world will continue to pay tribute to the NBA legend — including at the NASCAR race in California this coming weekend.

Let’s start with Ryan Blaney, who is currently ranked third in the standings, including a second-place finish behind Denny Hamlin at the Daytona 500 — the second closest finish in the race’s history. Blaney’s No. 12 car will have a special paint job.

That’s not all. William Byron’s car will also be sporting special colors, although his number was already 24.

And Daniel Suarez will be wearing special gloves and shoes, too.

You’ll see lots of purple and gold at Auto Club Speedway on Sunday, that’s for sure.
