JEFFERSON CITY (WATE) - Carson-Newman University has released designs for the Front-Row Motorsports Number 35 Ford Fusion, which will be featured at Saturday's night race at Bristol Motor Speedway.

The Sprint Cup car will be driven by Josh Wise.

"It's cool that Carson-Newman University is going to be on our car," said Wise in a release from the school.  "A local school, and not a real big school, to be getting involved in NASCAR is great.  We're going to be having some of the students there at the track.  We're actually going [to Carson-Newman] the week of the race to do an event there and spend some time at the school.  It's pretty exciting.  It's nice just to have a good local sponsor on the car and hopefully we'll do well for them."

Several Carson-Newman supporters are also sponsoring Wise's car including Premier Building Maintenance Corporation, Ted Russell Ford Lincoln, and Aramark.

Wise is scheduled to be on campus Tuesday, along with racing legend Darrell Waltrip and drivers David Ragan, David Gilliland, Josh Wise and Michael McDowell for a NASCAR Celebrity Roast benefiting the Boys and Girls Club of Dumplin Valley.

The race is scheduled to air live on at 7:30 p.m. on WATE.
