Each fall, Schnept Farms harvests its corn fields into an elaborate maze that from above features a celebrity's like-ness.

This year, the Queen Creek farm decided to feature NASCAR driver Joey Logano and Arizona 811, the state's pre-excavation notification service.

The larger-than-life design depicts the No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil driver in his race uniform with a steering wheel in his hand. At the bottom, it reads, “when good things come together.”

A second corn field was plowed to show the numbers "811," which has been feature on Logano's race car several times throughout the 2015 season.

The design was revealed to Logano at Dover International Speedway in Delware Friday morning, as he prepares to compete in the Chase for the Spring Cup and AAA 400 this weekend. He was shown aerial pictures and video.

"That was a pretty big surprise and something I’ll always remember. I’m pretty sure I’d get lost inside that thing," said Logano in a prepared statement.

Past celebrities that have been featured include Larry Fitzgerald, Steve Nash, Luis Gonzales, Oprah Winfrey and Larry King.
