The marketing blitz for Star Trek, opening in theaters this Friday, continued yesterday as David Stremme‘s #12 Penske Dodge sported a Star Trek paint scheme. The Indiana native started eleventh at the NASCAR Sprint Cup series stop at Richmond International Raceway in Virginia.

I snapped the above photo from the stands. Here are some professional pictures of the Star Trek car in a couple of different angles over at penskeracing.com.

Though Stremme fell behind early, he motored his way into the top ten near race end. Unfortunately, any Star Trek victory celebration will have to wait until after next weekend’s box office results, for Stremme’s Star Trek Dodge was taken out of the race in a late wreck. He went on to finish 38th.
