About this Custom Number paint

As Patty Moise began to rise through the ranks in stock car racing, she left her mark as a superspeedway qualifying ace. In five career ARCA starts, all on superspeedways, Moise won the pole four times. In late 1989, Moise set her sights on becoming the fastest woman in history, in a closed-course record attempt at Talladega. Moise's car, a Mike Laughlin-prepared streamlined Buick Regal stock car, had to best the mark of 212.577 mph, set by Lyn St. James a year prior. Moise eclipsed that run easily on December 14, running a lap at 216.607, but an issue with FIA paperwork meant the run did not count. Undeterred, Moise returned to Talladega on January 23, 1990, now with proper documentation, and set an even faster lap, going into the record books at 217.498 mph. The women's closed-course record stood until 1992, when St. James took the record back in Indianapolis 500 qualifying.
