Willy Myers rusty wrap featured on his UMP Pure Stock
I really enjoy out of the box thinking. Willy Myers certainly checked that box with this rustic race car wrap. Not just the wrap itself, the entire car.
What you’re looking at might be deceiving. Some pure stocks/street stocks get rolled from the barn and feature actual rust. Others, sport fictitious rust!
“We just wanted to really do something different,” Willy Myers stated to RacingNews.co at Belle-Clair Speedway.
“That was the main thing. With the roof and everything too, it all just kinda worked together.”

Where did the idea come from?
“I saw a couple of street cars and stuff doing it. I just thought it would look good on a race car, I wanted to try it.”
“That’s what the graphic guy came up with. I think he knocked it out of the park.”
“I told him what I was looking for. He just kinda went with it. He just did what he does and it turned out pretty good.”
What about the wagon aspect of it?
That was new to me. I’ve never seen a dirt race car with a roof that extends to the tail. While it looks like a wagon, it’s not.
“It’s actually a Blazer. Everybody calls it a wagon, which is ok I guess.
Let’s do sumthin’ different!
“That was another thing. Just everybody’s got Monte Carlo’s and stuff. We’re like, ‘Well, let’s do sumthin’ different!’ So, we went on ahead and did the Blazer.”
On October 6th, Willy Myers won the 1st annual DIRTcar National Championship night at Tri-City Speedway. The street stock feature paid $1,000 to the winner.
“I remember when Willy contacted me this spring asking if I would be able to do a “Rusty Wrap” and I was excited to put our ideas together for this project, stated the wrap creator Ronnie Deien.
“I felt that his car was a really good fit for this style of wrap and I was going for the look of an old race car that was rolled out of a barn from the past and give it some modern updates to the numbers and sponsors. I am really happy with the way it all came together and am anxious to see what is in store for next years wraps.”
Signs & Designs by Ronnie Deien have been in the graphics business for 15 years. The race car division of the business began in 2006.
“I am very grateful to be able to do what I love everyday and serve our clients to the best of my ability,” Deien concluded.
