fans should prepare themselves to see red -- and lots of it.

No, it isn't because Earnhardt is losing his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series crew chief after the 2014 season but more so because sauce-giant Ragu tweeted Monday that it would sponsor his No. 88 NASCAR Nationwide Series ride in 2014.

There hasn’t been an official team announcement yet as to how many races Earnhardt will run the paint scheme, but the team has previously said that he will team with crew chief Ernie Cope at both Daytona (Feb. 22) and Las Vegas (March 8) in the No. 88 car.

Earnhardt Jr. ran four Nationwide events in 2013, earning three top-five finishes in paint schemes showcasing TaxSlayer.com, Hellman's/Sam's Club and Great Clips.
