Many patriotic-themed paint jobs will appear on Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series cars this Saturday night, July 1 in the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway, as the race formerly known as the “Firecracker 400” always takes place on Fourth of July weekend.

There’s no better time during the NASCAR season to cherish America as the nation celebrates its 241st birthday Tuesday, July 4. Star-spangled and military-themed liveries also are seen often during the Coca-Cola 600 on Memorial Day weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway, as sponsors and teams pay homage to those who lost their lives defending American freedom.

The Brickyard 400 has taken place in late July and early August during all 24 years of its prestigious existence at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Those dates don’t dovetail with any patriotic American holidays, but that hasn’t stopped fans from seeing star-spangled stock car schemes throughout the years at the Brickyard, whether they’re special paint jobs or season-long liveries.

Here’s a gallery of some of our favorite patriotic paint jobs from the Brickyard 400 over the years. You can spot more red, white and blue liveries at this year’s Brickyard 400 on Sunday, July 23. Visit for tickets and more details.

Happy birthday, America!
