Welcome back, Nikko RC and Toy State: Debuting on the No. 7 Tommy Baldwin Racing Chevrolet in 2015, Toy State and their brands Nikko RC and Road Rippers recommitted to their NASCAR sponsorship in early December. Nikko RC and Toy State bring back their familiar bright blue paint scheme this weekend. It’s the first of multiple paint schemes that will be featured this year, all of which will resemble the likeness of toys found on store shelves.

Race with Regan: On Saturday, Smith will be visiting the Fanatics Trackside Superstore (10:00 a.m.) with sponsors Nikko RC and Toy State to demonstrate the use of their Nikko RC cars.

Making a Difference: Saturday afternoon, Smith will visit with patients at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and deliver toys on behalf of Toy State.

Smith: “I’m looking forward to getting on track with the No. 7 Nikko RC/ Toy State Chevrolet this weekend at Atlanta. This will be my first time driving the new low downforce package and with the character the track already has, this is going to make for an interesting race on Sunday. I’m excited for the new challenge.”
