CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

A 16-year-old girl is behind the paint scheme you’ll see this weekend on NASCAR driver David Ragan’s car in Daytona.

Hailey Randall is a patient at Shriners Hospitals for Children in Minneapolis. She designed the scheme as a part of the Healing Power of Love design contest that was open to patients of all 22 Shriner’s Hospitals across the country.

“I just really couldn’t wait to see it. I’ve been really looking forward to it,” Randall said Tuesday morning at an unveiling ceremony at the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

Randall has been a patient of Shriners Hospitals for Children since she was a small child, and has been treated for clubfoot, bilateral hip dysplasia and leg length discrepancy. She will join the BK Racing team this weekend in Daytona.

David Ragan will drive the number 23 BK Racing car this weekend during the Coke Zero 400 in Daytona.

"Hailey did an amazing job capturing the spirit and strength of the patients, employees and everyone associated with Shriners Hospitals in this paint scheme," Ragan said. "I am grateful to be able to drive a car featuring Hailey's design and represent Shriners Hospitals for Children this weekend."
