    ATLANTA, Ga. -- Florida State University's trophy case holds lots of hardware, but none for motorsports. 

    Aaron's and Brian Vickers plan to change that.

    Vickers' No. 55 Aaron's Toyota will carry a special paint scheme honoring FSU's 2013 BCS National Championship football team when the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races at Daytona International Speedway on July 5.

    The garnet and gold paint scheme on the Michael Waltrip Racing Toyota will include the FSU BCS National Championship logo on the hood.

    Vickers will also wear a special FSU driver uniform for the race.

    "Everyone in America knows about Florida State's tradition of success especially in athletics," said Vickers. "Aaron's and I really want to continue that tradition at Daytona in July and give Seminole fans a chance to see their car and colors celebrate in victory lane. I'm excited to be representing my home state on the car for Daytona. We're hoping it will give us a 'home field' advantage we need."

    Fans at FSU's April 12 Spring Game will see the car unveiling and watch a special video message from Vickers on the videoboard. FSU will collect hoods from the race car for display at block parties, road trips and The Jimbo Fisher Call-In Show throughout the 2014 football season.

    Aaron's said it was natural to honor Florida State at the Daytona race.   

    "Aaron's is proud to feature the Florida State football championship paint scheme on the No. 55 Dream Machine at Daytona International Speedway," said Rich Lamprey, Aaron's Director of Sports and Event Marketing. 

    "We have a history of showcasing collegiate championships on our racecars to highlight our brand's involvement in collegiate sports. We hope that NASCAR fans and college sports fans alike will appreciate the FSU paint scheme, and we look forward to Brian bringing the Seminoles to the checkered flag in Daytona," said Lamprey.

    Vickers drove a special paint scheme honoring the University of Louisville's national championship basketball team at Kentucky Speedway last year. Aaron's and MWR have honored Alabama and Auburn national football championships at Talladega Superspeedway four times since 2009.

    IMG College, which represents the multimedia rights and official licensed merchandise program of Florida State University, brought together MWR, Aaron's, and the school for this innovative marketing program. IMG will utilize its assets, including relationships within FSU Athletics, to help promote an exciting race weekend as well as the full collaboration of college sports and stock car racing.

    ORLANDO, Fla. -- 2013 National Champion and current NFL prospect Kenny Shaw will be participating in the ceremonial coin toss on Thursday, April 10 at CFE Arena.

    Shaw, who is expected to hear his name called in the 2014 NFL Draft, was the veteran leader of Florida State's receiving corps this season. The sure-handed receiver helped guide the Florida State Seminoles to their first National Championship since 1999. 

    During the 2013 season, Shaw was tied for second on Seminoles in receptions (54) and was third in receiving yards (933). The receiver also returned punts where he ranked sixth in the ACC with a 9.7 average. The do-it-all receiver ranked 10th in the ACC in receiving yards (66.6 per game) and was second on the team with 1,204 all-purpose yards.

    Shaw was a four-star prospect coming out of Doctor Phillips High School in Orlando according to Rivals, which ranked him as the No. 14 receiver prospect in the country, the No. 6 prospect overall in Florida and the No. 42 player nationally. The receiver is currently training and preparing for the NFL in Orlando, and he could not be more excited to participate in the coin toss this Thursday. "It was an opportunity that I could not pass up no matter how busy my schedule is," said Shaw. "Opportunities like this don't come around often, and I took it as a blessing. This is my first Arena Football game and I am excited to see what the game is all about."

    ABOUT ORLANDO PREDATORS:  The Orlando Predators are heading into their 23rd season as Orlando's most exciting and innovative professional sports franchise. Proud members of the Arena Football League, the Predators have achieved unprecedented success on the field, reaching the AFL postseason a league-leading 19 times in their history.
