I was minding my own business watching the Phoenix *NASCAR race Sunday when I saw a race car covered in a wildfire pattern.
The car is driven by Landon Cassill, not one of the top-tier drivers, with his best finish in Sprint Cup races being 18th. But I was intrigued by the appearance of the car, which they call the No. 33 Moon Shine Wildfire Camo Chevrolet SS. A little research revealed that the pattern is on a vinyl wrap that can be applied to many other objects, such as boats, ATVs, cell phones, iPads, or the vehicle that you drive to work each day.
The wildfire pattern was designed and is licensed by Moon Shine Attitude Attire, which allows many other companies to manufacture and sell vinyl wraps with the wildfire pattern.
It would not surprise me if some wildland firefighters decided to cover their entire personal vehicles with this, or put an “accent strip” along the bottom that is 11″ or 15″ wide.
If you put this on your vehicle, be sure and send us a photo.
*The race on Sunday was lengthened by several laps due to a caution flag just before the scheduled finish, and unfortunately Landon Cassill slowed to a stop a couple of laps before the end. He appeared to run out of fuel, as did one or two other cars. The preliminary final results listed him 32nd out of 43 cars.
