To help showcase the many colorful fans of NASCAR, today M&M’S Racing Fanvocates Right Turn Ryan and Left Turn Lindsay took to the track in style, sporting new race suit designs for the 2010 NASCAR racing season.

Other details include a race-stripe waist band embroidered with their respective names, the newly created Fan Patrol logo and an M&M’S-branded collar.
