CONCORD, N.C. -- This July at Kentucky Speedway, Dale Earnhardt Jr. will drive a very special No. 88 Chevrolet SS.

He'll pilot a Nationwide Children's Hospital paint scheme, and Tuesday afternoon three patients at the hospital helped unveil the brand new look.

Earnhardt and his wife Amy visited the hospital last week and the driver was able to meet Hope, Jenna and Ashleigh, who helped reveal the look for his Kentucky ride.

The race at Kentucky is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, July 8.
