Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s No. 88 Chevrolet will have a new look at Richmond International Raceway.

In May, Hendrick Motorsports announced that Nationwide Insurance would serve as a primary and associate sponsor on Earnhardt's ride over the next three Sprint Cup seasons.

On Thursday, the paint scheme was unveiled on the newly launched @Nationwide88 Twitter account that will provide updates related to Earnhardt and his Hendrick Motorsports team.

Here's how Earnhardt described the new look. 

"I've worked with Nationwide for years, but never as a primary sponsor," said Earnhardt, who has been featured in Nationwide's national advertising campaign since 2009. "Having them on board with Hendrick Motorsports and the No. 88 team is a big opportunity, and I really appreciate them inviting me to help design the car."
