From Daytona posted on Instagram by carlos_nation18. Looks like it's the same as last years scheme. The scheme that ran what twice. During the chase. But not the 75th Anniversary.
SOURCE: http://www.jayski.com/cupnews.htm#20170214cMars this year is rolling out what likely is its largest launch ever for a new kind of M&M's with M&M's Caramel, and the company will support the roll-out with a major push in NASCAR. M&M's will start selling the Caramel product in May. Part of that will be in NASCAR, where the M&M's Caramel brand will run as the primary paint scheme of Kyle Busch's #18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota for a third of the season's 36 races. Due to the spring release of the candy, M&M's will hold off on running its first Caramel paint scheme until the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series All-Star Race in Charlotte. M&M's will support the launch with TV, digital, social and in-store activation, as well as shoot a digital content series with Busch about "unsquaring" caramel. M&M's is looking at having at-track activation on midway fanzones, and will have a non-Caramel display to start the season at the Daytona 500. The other brands Mars will run paint schemes around this year are original M&M's, Skittles, Pedigree Dog Food and Banfield Pet Hospital, plus special red, white and blue and Halloween paint schemes around the Fourth of July and Halloween, respectively. Mars, which sponsors around 30 races a year with JGR in a deal worth eight figures annually and has been involved in NASCAR for more than 25 years, renewed its official deal with the sanctioning body last year through 2019.
