La Marque, Texas, USA

Found this spider on my car one afternoon. Although the picture makes it look brown, its orange in color. Never seen a spider like it so i was wondering if anyone could ID it.

Thanks in advance.

I'm not an expert either, but I'm confident John Maxwell is right. The two spots (tubercles) on the anterior abdomen are an Eriophora trait and rule out some similar looking species. :)

Not an expert, Not an ID
but Eriophora ravilla is similar
