By Jay Casteel  |  03/04/2014

Ahead of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races in Las Vegas over the weekend, including the Kobalt 400 and Boyd Gaming 300, Dale Earnhardt Jr. unveils his newly-designed Mtn Dew Kickstart paint scheme and firesuit that will grace his No. 88 Chevy SS.

The paint scheme will see its first action on Sunday at 3 p.m. ET on FOX.

Dale Jr. is leading the NASCAR standings, following his Daytona 500 win last week, six points ahead of the second place Brad Keselowski.

In addition, the NASCAR star will be teaming up with Mtn Dew on Wednesday (March 5) to help fans in Vegas kick off race weekend with a seven-foot Mtn Dew Kickstart slot machine that will sit on the plaza outside Planet Hollywood on the Las Vegas Strip.

Players can take a turn on the slots for a chance to win exciting prizes -- including a grand prize meet-and-greet experience during the Mtn Dew Kickstart party at Koi Restaurant and Lounge (located inside the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino) with Dale Jr., who will be on-site to reward the winner.
