NASCAR Driver Ryan Blaney’s Bushy New Beard Makes Him Barely Recognizable

The beard's days might be numbered, though


Ryan Blaney’s face remains in a state of flux.

The 26-year-old NASCAR driver has developed a reputation for getting adventurous with his facial hair during the Cup Series offseasons. And, well, that trend continued this winter, as the Team Penske driver went full-lumberjack with a bushy new beard.

However, while speaking with reporters Tuesday, Blaney implied the beard’s days might be numbered.

?It?s a — yeah, I don?t know — a winter coat I guess is what you?d call it. So it?ll be gone before you know it.?

Take a look:

So, should Blaney keep the beard?

Our vote: Keep it. It looks more NASCAR — whatever that means.
