Voting opened Aug. 6 and runs through Aug. 30, and so far, Wallace’s No. 43 Chevrolet honoring Adam Petty has a substantial lead on the pack.

William Byron’s “Days of Thunder” neon green look is in second, while Chase Elliott’s No. 9 in honor of his father, Awesome Bill, is third. Paul Menard’s No. 21 that celebrates late team owner Glenn Wood is fourth, while Alex Bowman’s Tim Richmond-inspired look rounds out the top five.
