The start of the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup season is just six weeks away, and the contenders are beginning to get dressed up for the battle. Joe Gibbs Racing TV shows how that's done with a time-lapse video of Kyle Busch's No. 18 Toyota Camry getting its bright, tailored suit of logos headed by sponsor M&Ms.

Of note, the base racecar is already wrapped to look like a Camry in matte black, and we raised at least one eyebrow watching how the puzzle pieces of the top wrap get put together over the bodywork. See for yourself in the video below.

      Interesting but would be better if someone explained a little bit of the process as they went along instead of just inserting random Skrillex-esque techno. For example, how long does it take? What's the hardest part and is there much training involved to get it looking right? Do they have to do anything special to keep it from separating at high speeds? When did they first start using wraps? Stuff like that.

      So they trade vinyl now instead of paint?

        Just like that dirty club you go to on Saturday night.

      I remember some show, on Speed I think, where they followed Kyle around during a race and did a bio. On this one particular episode he was at a race with his then fiance, now wife, and she said to him: "Why is it darker tonight than last night when you raced at the same time?" Kyle looked up sky and then at her and said: "It's cloudy", and she said "Ooooh", he then gave a look only guys can give, that look of thank God you are a good in bed.

        You dont honestly think nascar cares about cheating do you? All they care about is getting revnues up because they have been suckin for a couple years now. So letting toyota "catch up" is ok in there eyes.

      I am surprised at how interesting that was. Could do without the music selection though...

      Do sticker headlights on car make anyone else want to vomit?

      Now, if they had done the wrap while putting Kyle "Prissy Pants" Busch underneath it, then I would have enjoyed it more.

      Ugh that horrid dubstep bullshite... Also, decals? This is one of the several reasons I prefer old NASCAR... That looked so "cheapo".

        I agree about the music. Dubstep can be good, but that was really poor. This will get old quickly and will sound at least as bad as the old stock background music on all those VHSs...

      Wonder why they cut around the headlight stickers rather than apply those afterwards like they do with some of the other stickers.?
