With a "clean and simple" design inspired by Cale Yarborough, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and his team revealed on Twitter his new-look No. 88 Chevrolet for this weekend's race at Richmond.

The new @Nationwide88 Twitter account -- which will provide updates on Junior and his No. 88 team -- tweeted out the image below.

Nationwide Insurance will serve as a primary sponsor for Dale Earnhardt Jr. in 2015, but the company got a head start on its new role with Hendrick Motorsports by signing on as primary sponsor for Saturday night's Federated Auto Parts 400, which also serves as the regular-season finale.

Earnhardt, who has three career Sprint Cup wins at the 0.75-mile oval, worked with Nationwide on the design of his car. Richmond will be the only 2014 event with this paint scheme.
