LATEST PAINT SCHEME NEWS

  • Kahne, Labonte unveil LiftMaster Throwback scheme: Wednesday afternoon, #5-Kasey Kahne and Terry Labonte joined LiftMaster at the NASCAR Hall of Fame to unveil the throwback paint scheme that Kahne will pilot next weekend at Darlington Raceway. The scheme reflects Labonte's 1982 JD Stacy Buick paint scheme and also corresponds with LiftMaster's founding year. "This paint scheme brings back a lot of really great memories for me, and I'm honored that LiftMaster put together this program with Kasey and the #5 team for Darlington," Labonte. "To experience the unveiling through virtual reality is something I would have never thought was possible in 1982, so to see just how far technology has come and how LiftMaster integrates it into its products was really neat." The scheme was unveiled through an interactive virtual reality experience, allowing guests in attendance to virtually go back to 1982 and see the car as Labonte drove it, while also seeing Kahne's tribute version. "Darlington's throwback weekend is one of the coolest programs any track does all year," Kahne said. "I'm glad that LiftMaster is participating in the program to celebrate their start of the garage door opener business. I appreciate the opportunity to honor Terry Labonte with our throwback paint scheme at one of my favorite tracks."(HMS), see images of the scheme on the #5 Team Schemes page (8-24-2016)

  • Buescher to run Love's throwback scheme at Darlington: Chris Buescher and Love's Travel Stops will turn the clock back to 1981 - the year Love's opened its first travel stop - for the Bojangles' Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway. Front Row Motorsports and Love's unveiled the #34 team's paint scheme for the Sept. 4 Sprint Cup Series race Wednesday on social media. The stripes replicate the look that was on the fuel canopies and the building's façade at the company's first travel stop, which opened in 1981 in Amarillo, Texas. Today Love's has more than 390 locations in 40 states and employs more than 15,000 people. "The Darlington throwback weekend has become a pretty big deal, and it's cool to have Love's Travel Stops bring some of their history into the race weekend with their old colors," said Buescher. "Darlington is my favorite track, and I can't wait to get there and turn some laps in this special Love's Ford Fusion."(Front Row Motorsports), see images of the scheme on the #34 Team Schemes page (8-24-2016)

  • Target throwback scheme revealed: Chip Ganassi Racing and Kyle Larson will honor Target's start in auto racing at this year's Bojangles' Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway. The team revealed Tuesday on social media the #42 Chevy to be used. The slick scheme honors Target's first car in motorsports, in IndyCar in 1990. The bull's-eye on the roof is a nod to both Chip Ganassi Racing's relationship with Target, and also CGR's roots in IndyCar racing. The Southern 500 will also mark Larson's 100th NASCAR Sprint Cup Series start.(NASCAR.com), see images of the scheme on the #42 Team Schemes page (8-24-2016)

  • Mountain Dew scheme returns for Elliott: After the first trip of his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series career to Dover, earlier this season, #24-Chase Elliott walked away with a third-place finish. When the series returns to the First State in October, Elliott will be looking to do even better. In the October race, Elliott will have an extra kick in his step since he will be "fueled" by Mountain Dew. The citrus soda will serve as the primary sponsor on his #24 Chevy (Lionel Racing), see images of the scheme on the #24 Team Schemes page (8-24-2016)

  • Biffle to run Hooters scheme at Darlington; promote National First Responders Day: Greg Biffle will honor the late Alan Kulwicki by running a Hooters throwback scheme in the famed Southern 500 at Darlington Speedway on Sunday, September 4th. In addition to honoring the 1992 Winston Cup Champion, Biffle and Hooters have teamed up to help petition congress to recognize our local and national heroes who risk their lives on a daily basis by creating a National First Responders Day. "I was a huge Alan Kulwicki fan, so this is a really special opportunity to get to honor him in this way," said Biffle. "I'm also a fan of Hooters and really excited to support the campaign to create a National First Responders Day. There are so many men and women who risk their lives each and every day to keep the rest of us safe, they are the real heroes and definitely deserve a day of recognition."
    Andrew Collier, brother of slain MIT police officer Sean Collier who gave his life protecting his community during the Boston marathon bombing tragedy, has been lobbying Congress since 2013 to formally recognize the contribution and sacrifice of First Responders but so far has been unable to secure enough support in Washington to succeed. Inspired by Andrew's determined efforts and on behalf of First Responders across America, Hooters has partnered with the National Association of Police Organizations, the National Black Police Association and Thankyoufirstresponder.org to launch FirstRespondersDay.org. A website where Americans can express gratitude for First Responders and sign a petition formally requesting Congress to pass legislation creating a National First Responders Day. Fans are encouraged to sign the petition by visiting FirstRespondersDay.org.
    In addition to signing the petition, Americans can show their support for First Responders by posting a picture on social media using the hashtag #OneWordOneDay and holding a sign with one word that they believe best represents First Responders. "We are excited to partner with NASCAR driver Greg Biffle and Roush Fenway Racing as part of our campaign to help America come together in support of our First Responders," said Carl Sweat, CMO of Hooters. "Our First Responders risk a great deal to protect and serve us every day and we are all safer because of their sacrifices. Hooters is proud to recognize First Responders and join Andrew Collier in creating a National First Responders Day to honor them all."
    Hooters is expressing its thanks to our Nation's First Responders by treating them to a free entrée. On Tuesday September 20, all First Responders can select an item from a special menu when they present a valid organization ID at any Hooters location across the nation. Biffle is no stranger to finding victory lane at Darlington Raceway. Biffle has two Sprint Cup wins at the track, two poles, has earned three top-five and six top-10 finishes over his 15 starts at the 1.366-mile track. Biffle has led 718 laps at Darlington, the most laps he led at any track on the Sprint Cup circuit.(RFR), see images of the scheme on the #16 Team Schemes page (8-23-2016)

  • Cassill Pays Tribute to J.D. McDuffie with Darlington Throwback: Landon Cassill will enter Darlington Raceway's Southern 500 in a car that will honor the memory of J.D. McDuffie, the scrappy but respected independent racer who competed for 28 years in the Sprint Cup Series before losing his life in a crash at Watkins Glen International. Cassill unveiled the throwback paint scheme of the #38 Ford during a Facebook Live broadcast on NASCAR's Facebook page. The blue and gold scheme replicates a design McDuffie drove in the 1970s and 80s. McDuffie sponsors Rumple Furniture and Bailey Excavating will be featured on the car as part of the tribute during the Sept. 4 race. Despite being an independent owner/driver without the resources of a larger team, McDuffie competed in 653 Cup races, collecting 106 top-10 finishes and a pole position, and finished in the top 20 in points 14 times in his career. Even though he holds the record for making the most starts without ever reaching Victory Lane, he won the respect of fans and fellow competitors in the sport. A 52-year-old McDuffie was on Lap 5 of the 1991 race at Watkins Glen when a mechanical failure resulting from contact with another car sent him into the Turn 5 tire barrier without brakes. He died instantly. Cassill and Front Row Motorsports are proud to pay tribute to a competitor who was known for his blue-collar ethic.
    "J.D. was a guy who just kept scrapping, week after week, and earned a lot of good finishes as a result," Cassill said. "Bob Jenkins likes to say that Front Row Motorsports is the team that does more with less. You can definitely say that J.D. McDuffie did the same thing, and we're proud to honor his memory at Darlington." The Darlington Raceway event will celebrate the decade spanning 1975 to 1984 at this year's race with throwback paint schemes on all 40 entries.(Front Row Motorsports), see images of the scheme on the #38 Team Schemes page (8-23-2016)

  • Chicago dessert maker to sponsor Jeffrey Earnhardt at Darlington: After a twenty-year hiatus, Otter Pops, the delicious and fun freezer pops "like no otter," re-enter the world of auto racing at the Bojangles' Southern 500 race at the Darlington Raceway. Rookie Jeffrey Earnhardt will be driving the Otter Pops-sponsored car at NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event. The Bojangles' race is a "throwback race" and Earnhardt's Otter Pops car will be decked out in a blue and yellow color scheme matching his grandfather Dale Earnhardt Sr's, iconic racecar sponsored by Wrangler. "I'm really excited to have Otter Pops joining us at Darlington. I've been eating them since I can remember and you can't help but smile when you're eating an Otter Pop!" said Jeffrey Earnhardt. "It's hot this summer so I'm happy to have them being part of our team and look forward to eating a bunch of them at Darlington.(BusinessWire), see and image of the scheme on the #32 Team Schemes page (8-23-2016)

  • Tide returns to NASCAR, sponsoring Kenseth in Southern 500: Tide and Joe Gibbs Racing announced they will bring back one of the most iconic brands in the history of NASCAR for the Bojangles' Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway on Sunday, September 4. Tide's unforgettable orange and yellow paint scheme has been reborn as a more powerful Tide PODS Toyota Camry, and will be driven by Joe Gibbs Racing driver Matt Kenseth. This potent combination of the new Tide PODS entry and Kenseth will pay homage to the rich history of Tide while exemplifying the strength and evolution of the brand.
    For 20 years, an entire generation of racing fans cheered for the iconic "Tide Ride." Driven by some of the sport's legendary figures, including Darrell Waltrip, Ricky Rudd and Ricky Craven, the car amassed 20 total wins from 1987 to 2006. Each driver contributed a fabled chapter to the Tide Ride story-Waltrip's famous victory lane dance following his Daytona 500 win in 1989; Rudd gutting out a win at the 1997 Brickyard 400; and Craven capturing the closest win in the sport's history (.002 seconds) at Darlington in 2003.
    "With Tide celebrating its 70th anniversary as a brand, there's no better time to return to our roots in NASCAR for the Southern 500, and introduce a new generation of fans to the powerful new Tide PODS car," said Amy Krehbiel, Brand Manager for Tide. "Matt Kenseth's track record has proven him to be the type of commanding talent that we're proud to align with the Tide PODS brand."
    As the newest driver to compete for Tide, Matt Kenseth brings nearly 20 years of experience in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, including 38 wins and the 2003 series championship. "Tide has such a rich history in this sport," said Matt Kenseth, driver of the #20 Toyota Camry. "I can't think of a better race to make their return to NASCAR than for the Southern 500. I'm looking forward to being a part of the second annual throwback weekend, and am proud to represent such an iconic brand. There have been many great moments associated with Tide and its former talented drivers; I'm honored to continue the legacy with Tide PODS at Darlington."
    Tide will also serve as an associate sponsor on the remaining three Joe Gibbs Racing Toyotas of #11-Denny Hamlin, #18-Kyle Busch and #19-Carl Edwards for the Labor Day weekend event. Additionally, the #18, #19 and #20 entries will carry Tide as an associate for the following two events at Chicago and Richmond. Both Tide and Joe Gibbs Racing are also celebrating substantial company anniversaries this year, further strengthening the significance of the partnership and return of the iconic brand to NASCAR for these select events.
    "This is a thrill for us," said Joe Gibbs, owner of Joe Gibbs Racing. "Not only is this a throwback paint scheme that we know the fans will be excited for, but it is with a sponsor that has a tremendous history in our sport. This is our 25th Anniversary season at Joe Gibbs Racing and I know it is the 70th Anniversary of Tide. They really are a historic brand in our country and their new partnership with Joe Gibbs Racing for Darlington is a real honor."(Joe Gibbs Racing), see images of the scheme on the #20 Team Schemes page (8-16-2016)

  • #78 to showcase retro look at Darlington to honor Auto-Owners Insurance 100th Anniversary: The timing of being the primary sponsor on Martin Truex's #78 Toyota for the Bojangles' Southern 500 throwback weekend Sept. 2-4 at Darlington Raceway offered a unique opportunity for Auto-Owners Insurance, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary. In the spirit of the throwback concept, Auto-Owners Insurance has opted for a retro look on Truex's race car that will pay tribute to the company's centennial milestone. The Lansing-Mich.-based company, which has been a staple in local communities since it was founded in 1916, is one of the nation's largest insurers. "We love the retro theme of the Darlington race and how it celebrates NASCAR's history," said Mary Pierce, Auto-Owners senior vice president of marketing and sales. "Auto-Owners really wanted to be part of this race as we celebrate our 100th year in business." Truex will also wear a special firesuit at the Darlington race, honoring independent insurance agents and the typical agent attire from back in 1916. "Darlington has just become an even more exciting race for our Furniture Row Racing team by having the retro Auto-Owners Insurance paint scheme on our Toyota Camry and also my fire suit," said Truex, who has already clinched a 2016 Chase playoff berth. "Auto-Owners has put a lot of creative thought in activating its primary sponsorship and we would like nothing more than to reward the 100-year-old company with a victory at one of NASCAR's most celebrated tracks." The Auto-Owners paint scheme and firesuit for the Darlington Raceway weekend is part of a larger company promotion called Fast, Friendly, Local. "Fast, Friendly, Local exemplifies the way Auto-Owners and our independent agents serve our customers," said Pierce. "In 1916 you had to walk into an insurance agency to buy insurance. Now, you can use modern technology to contact your independent Auto-Owners agent, but at the end of the day you are still buying insurance from an expert who lives in your community. That experience is part of the outstanding service Auto-Owners wants to deliver to our customers."(Furniture Row Racing PR), see image of the scheme on the #78 Team Schemes page (8-16-2016)

  • Virginia Tech featured on the #21 at Bristol and Martinsville: The Virginia Tech Athletics Department and Wood Brothers Racing announced that the NASCAR Sprint Cup race team will display a Virginia Tech paint scheme on its cars for upcoming races at Bristol Motor Speedway and Martinsville Speedway. The paint scheme is being used to promote both the school's academic programs and the athletics department as part of the department's "This is Home" marketing campaign. The Virginia Tech football team will play Tennessee at Bristol Motor Speedway on Saturday, Sept. 10 - a game that may break college football's all-time single-game attendance mark - and the car will be displayed at that game. The car will feature a primary color of maroon, with orange and white accent stripes. Ryan Blaney, who drives the Wood Brothers' #21 Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, will wear a fire suit and a helmet with Virginia Tech colors and the team will be wearing Virginia Tech shirts.(Wood Brothers Racing), see an image of the car on the #21 team paint schemes page.(8-15-2016)

  • McMurray's Darlington scheme a throwback to Bill Elliott: Chip Ganassi Racing announced that the #1 McDonald's Chevy will sport an iconic look for the Labor Day Weekend race at the famed Darlington Raceway. Jamie McMurray will drive the #1 Chevrolet SS featuring a popular look from the past. Originally run by NASCAR Hall of Fame driver Bill Elliott in 1997, McMurray's throwback ride will feature a Mac Tonight paint scheme for the 2016 Southern 500. Mac Tonight was a sunglasses-wearing, piano-playing crooner with a crescent moon for a head, who sang the popular jingle "Mac Tonight". The midnight blue car, covered with stars and the Mac Tonight crescent moon will brighten the night at the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway. The Mac Tonight campaign was originally created for California McDonald's franchisees, intended to increase the after 4pm dinner business for the restaurant chain.(Chip Ganassi Racing), see an image of the car on the #1 team paint schemes page.(8-15-2016)

  • Hamlin's Darlington throwback scheme unveiled: Joe Gibbs Racing unveiled #11-Denny Hamlin's throwback scheme for Darlington on Wednesday afternoon. The SportClips Toyota is a throwback to Darrell Waltrip's #11 1984 race car design.(8-10-2016), see an image of the car on the #11 team paint schemes page.(8-10-2016)

  • Johnson's Darlington throwback scheme unveiled: #48-Jimmie Johnson's Darlington throwback scheme will pay homage to the #2 car that David Pearson raced at Talladega in 1979 with Lowe's on the hood. Pearson finished 2nd while filling in for rookie Dale Earnhardt, Sr. who had been injured in an accident at Pocono.(8-10-2016), see an image of the car on the #48 team paint schemes page.(8-10-2016)

  • Stewart to run Coca-Cola/Bobby Allison tribute scheme at Darlington: The 1971 and 1972 Southern 500s were owned by Bobby Allison. The legendary racer from Hueytown, Alabama, proved he was indeed "The Real Thing" at Darlington Raceway, driving his red-and-gold Coca-Cola machine to emphatic, back-to-back victories at the tough and gritty South Carolina track. Allison dominated from start-to-finish in both races at the 1.366-mile oval. He started from the pole each time and led 558 of the 734 laps available (76 percent). He paced the field for all but 38 laps in the 1971 Southern 500 and led a race-high 229 laps in the 1972 Southern 500. The victories were the first of five premiere series wins Allison earned at Darlington.
    In 2016, Tony Stewart will try to emulate Allison's 1971 and 1972 performances when he competes at Darlington on Sept. 4 in his final Southern 500. Driving a #14 Coca-Cola Chevy that will match the paint scheme Allison drove to those epic wins, Stewart will certainly look the part. With Coca-Cola's tagline of that era, "The Real Thing", emblazoned on the car, the authentic look from Allison's race-winning cars has been recreated on Stewart's Chevrolet, right down to the gold wheels and cubic-inch displacement boast on the hood. "I've been a member of the Coca-Cola Racing Family for my entire NASCAR career and been a part of some pretty cool and unique promotions, but this one is definitely my favorite," said Stewart, who will retire following the season finale Nov. 20 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. "The throwback weekend Darlington has created makes it the perfect place to run a scheme that has a ton of history with Bobby Allison and Coca-Cola."
    Stewart is a three-time NASCAR premiere series champion with 49 career victories. Allison is the 1983 NASCAR premiere series champion with 85 career victories. Allison is in the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Stewart is a first-ballot lock for the NASCAR Hall of Fame. "Those red-and-gold Coca-Cola cars were very good to me," said Allison, who was inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame in 2011, the same year Stewart won his third premiere series championship. "From 1970 through 1975, Coca-Cola was on my car and we won a lot of races. We won 11 races in '71, the most I ever had in a single season, and then we came back to win 10 more in '72. And that first win at Darlington - it was such a tough track and such a long race - it meant so much. Tony Stewart is a real racer who would've fit right in during the time I raced in NASCAR. He's a perfect fit for this Coca-Cola Chevy. I know what car I'll be watching in the Southern 500."
    Darlington is one of only two venues where Stewart is winless in NASCAR's top division. In 23 career premier series starts at the venerable track, Stewart's best finish is third, earned in the 2009 and 2012 Southern 500s. "Races at Darlington have been pretty tough for me," Stewart said. "We've had some decent runs there, but it just seems like you really have to put everything together the whole day. If you can say you won a race at Darlington - that's a feather in your cap because you conquered something that's very hard to obtain. That's something to be proud of, knowing that you're in a group of drivers with names like Allison and Pearson and Petty - the pioneers of our sport." Coca-Cola, with a NASCAR lineage that goes back more than 50 years, has been a part of Stewart's NASCAR career since his rookie season in 1999.
    "We are humbled by moments like today when two of NASCAR's most respected drivers come together over an iconic car emblazoned with our brand," said Ben Reiling, director, sports marketing, Coca-Cola North America. "Together, we commemorate Coca-Cola's role within NASCAR and honor and celebrate Bobby Allison and Tony Stewart for what they stand for in the history of motorsports."(SHR), see an image of the scheme on the #14 Team Schemes page (8-3-2016)

  • Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford to pay tribute to Pearson at Darlington: Wood Brothers Racing and Motorcraft/Quick Lane Racing unviled their throw-back paint scheme for the Bojangles' Southern 500 at the NASCAR Hall of Fame. The design is a tribute to the 1976 Mercury Montego that David Pearson drove to the unofficial NASCAR triple crown that Bicentennial year four decades ago. With Hall of Fame crew chief Leonard Wood calling the shots from the pit area, Pearson grabbed the triple crown by winning the Daytona 500, the World 600 at Charlotte and the Southern 500, and added seven other victories that season. "We are so excited that we were able to work with Motorcraft, Quick Lane and Ford Performance to make this paint scheme happen," said Eddie Wood, co-owner of the Wood Brothers Racing Team. "It's hard to believe that it's been 40 years since all that happened." The scheme includes Pearson's name on the door honoring the winningest driver in the Wood Brothers' storied 66-year history.
    "David Pearson is such an important part of our history, getting 43 of our 98 wins over seven years, that we're proud to put his name on this race car," said team co-owner Len Wood, who along with his brother oversaw the execution of the design down to the smallest detail. "We had to incorporate our current sponsor Motorcraft/Quick Lane into this design yet stay true to the original, right down to the blue stripes across the hood and down the side panels and the silver wheels." The iconic #21's Darlington paint scheme includes an image of a Motorcraft oil filter on the C pillar just as there was for Purolator in 1976. The Wood Brothers ran just two cars, the same two cars, between 1976 and 1980. One was set up for speedways and the other for short tracks. The original speedway model is in the Speedway Motors Museum of Speed in Lincoln, Neb. The short-track variation is on display in America's Car Museum in Tacoma, Wash. In 1976, in addition to the triple crown, the cars won 10 of the 22 races they started, led 1,227 laps, captured eight poles and posted 16 top-five and 18 top-10 finishes. The non-triple crown victories came at Riverside (2), Atlanta, Darlington, Michigan (2) and Ontario (Calif.). The cars ran as Montegos again in 1977 when they won at Riverside and Darlington and grabbed five pole positions, again with Pearson behind the wheel, Wrigley's Spearmint Gum duct taped to the dash as was his custom. In 1978, 1979 and 1980, the cars ran as Cougars and an opera window replaced the oil filter on the C pillar. As Cougars, they combined for five poles and six wins including triumphs at Dover, Daytona, Charlotte, Darlington, Pocono and Talladega.
    Pearson shared driving duties with Neil Bonnett in 1979 and Bonnett became the team's sole wheel man in 1980. If anyone thinks the "throwback" paint schemes at Darlington are solely for older NASCAR fans, they are mistaken. A year ago, a 14-year-old fan from Tennessee named Skyler Fox sent his idea for a throwback paint scheme to Wood Brothers Racing. It also was based on the 1976 paint scheme. "I really enjoy old racing," Fox said. "The throwback race brings back lots of things I never was able to see. This scheme always stood out to me because it was one of the Daytona 500-winning schemes. It also is one of the cleanest, fastest-looking schemes ever." Also at Darlington this year, driver Ryan Blaney will wear a fire suit patterned after the suit Pearson wore in 1976. "When I first started driving for the Wood Brothers last season, I knew it was going to be a special experience," Blaney said. "But being able to drive the Motorcraft/Quick Lane Fusion with a paint scheme that really highlights the team's great history is truly an honor." In addition, Wood Brothers crew members will be wearing uniforms - complete with white pants with a blue stripe down each leg - that match those worn by their predecessors 40 years ago.(Wood Brothers Racing), see an image of the scheme on the #21 Team Schemes page (8-2-2016)

  • Menard's Darlington throwback scheme unveiled: Paul Menard's Richard Childress Racing #27 Chevy will carry the gray, orange and black color scheme used by Al Unser Jr. for the 1993 Daytona 500 with sponsor Valvoline featured on the hood when the series travels to Darlington Raceway for the annual Labor Day weekend classic. "Little Al's first NASCAR race was the Daytona 500 in 1993," Menard said earlier this week as preparations for the unveiling of the paint scheme got underway. "The partnership with Valvoline this year -- we got to talking earlier about who some of my racing heroes were and Al Jr. was right away, even without the Valvoline relationship. I've always been a huge fan of his. He was the guy in IndyCar that I always pulled for." Menard said he met the former open-wheel champion and two-time winner of the Indianapolis 500 "when I was probably 12."
    "I remember; he probably doesn't," Menard continued. "But I pulled up (this morning) ... and he was standing out in the parking lot. We were out there talking probably 10 or 15 minutes, just about the '93 (Daytona) 500, his autocross stuff that he's doing now, just talking about a little bit of racing." When told that Menard and Valvoline were bringing the original paint scheme back to the track for the Darlington throwback weekend, Unser said he was "just overwhelmed."(NASCAR.com), see images of the scheme on the #27 Team Schemes page.(7-29-2016)

  • BK Racing Unveils Darlington Throwback Schemes: A NASCAR 'Throwback' weekend at Darlington Raceway and two Toyota Camrys serve as the perfect canvas for Dr Pepper and Orange Crush to pay homage to their history. David Ragan's #23 Dr Pepper paint scheme will echo the iconic "I'm a Pepper" look that we grew up with. Matt DiBenedetto's #83 is going to stand out in the Orange Crush paint scheme from the 70s.

We hope by showing off the brand's throwback creative we can tap into the nostalgic feelings race spectators and our longtime Crush fans have for the brand."

Fans who participate will be entered to win autographed merchandise. The contest will run from August 18th through the Darlington race weekend.(BK Racing), see images of the cars on the 2016 Darlington Throwback schemes page (7-6-2016)

  • #32 Ford to feature special Dale Earnhardt throwback scheme at Darlington: The #32 Ford will pay tribute to driver Jeffrey Earnhardt's grandfather, the late Dale Earnhardt, with a design that combines the #3 and #2 driven by Dale Earnhardt in 1981, on his way to earning 17 top-ten finishes and nine top five, including a sixth place finish in the Southern 500 at Darlington. "I'm pretty excited to have the famous yellow and blue paint scheme in honor of my Grandfather for this year's Southern 500," said Jeffrey Earnhardt. "My grandfather ran this paint scheme in 1981, when he started the season as the No.2 car driving for Rod Osterlund. When Richard Childress purchased the team halfway through the season it became the famous #3 car, so you have that 32 connection, so it's pretty cool to have the chance to bring it back this year. I know we'll have a lot of fun with it, and hope the all the great fans enjoy it as well."(CorvetteParts.net Facebook page)
    AND Go Fas Racing (GFR) is pleased to unveil the throwback paint scheme that the #32 CorvetteParts.Net Ford Fusion will carry this September in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) race at Darlington Raceway. The #32 Ford Fusion will pay tribute to Jeffrey Earnhardt's grandfather Dale Earnhardt with a design that combines the #3 and #2 driven by Dale Earnhardt in 1981, on his way to earning 17 top-ten finishes and nine top five, including a sixth place finish in the Southern 500 at Darlington.
    "Sometimes things just fall together at the right time," said Go Fas Racing owner Archie St.Hilaire. "When we were going through the process of which paint scheme to run for this year's race at Darlington the idea of a tribute to Dale Earnhardt's 1981 season stood out to all of us above the rest. Throw in the fact that we get to have Jeffrey showcase his family's heritage and pay tribute to his grandfather as well, that's just icing on the cake." In a NSCS career that spanned 27 years, Earnhardt collected seven NSCS championships along with 76 victories, 22 poles, 281 top-five finishes, and 25,684 laps led. Additionally, Earnhardt won four IROC championships and scored 21 victories in the NASCAR XFINITY Series.

  • Elliott's throwback scheme for Darlington UPDATE: Chase Elliott will run a yellow and back NAPA Auto Parts scheme on the #24 Hendrick Motorsports Chevy in the Bojangles' Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway in September. See an image of the scheme on the #24 Team Schemes page (5-20-2016)
    UPDATE NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Rookie of the Year contender Chase Elliott revealed the yellow-and-black #24 NAPA AUTO PARTS Assurance of Quality Chevy that he will race in the Sept. 4 Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway as part of the track's Southern 500 throwback weekend. The retro-themed paint scheme mimics a longstanding NAPA AUTO PARTS delivery truck. The design will feature a yellow hood and roof panel sporting NAPA AUTO PARTS' 1963 logo - the last version before the modern day yellow-and-blue design seen today. The logo introduced in 1963 was meant to remind customers that NAPA was nationwide and represented quality with knowledgeable employees - traits that still hold true today. The lower half of Elliott's Chevrolet is a sleek black with the current NAPA design emblazoned on the quarter panels as well as the deck lid next to a bright white No. 24 on the door panels. The rear television panel features the current logo design next to white script reading "90 Years Strong" as NAPA AUTO PARTS has been in business for over 90 years. The National Automotive Parts Association was formed in 1925.
    "The yellow and black is based off of NAPA's old logo," Elliott comments as he unveiled the retro paint scheme. "The logo was actually on one of their delivery trucks in the 1960s and we modeled the entire paint scheme off of that truck. I think it turned out really good. I like it and I'm excited about running it in Darlington. I think we have a car that will certainly stand out, which is good."
    The design is part of an overall throwback weekend at one of NASCAR's oldest venues. Built in 1949 by Harold Brasington, Darlington Raceway has hosted Sprint Cup races since 1950. The first Southern 500 at Darlington took place on Labor Day in 1950 courtesy of a deal made between Brasington and NASCAR founder Bill France Sr. More than 80 entrants showed up for the inaugural event. "We appreciate the support of our throwback program by Chase Elliott and Hendrick Motorsports," Darlington Raceway President Chip Wile said. "Chase's special paint scheme for the Bojangles' Southern 500 is one that fans won't want to miss on Labor Day weekend. We're so pleased that the teams, drivers and their partners have recognized the importance of celebrating the history of our sport at Darlington Raceway, one of the most iconic tracks on the circuit." The Tradition Continues on Labor Day weekend as the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Bojangles' Southern 500 is set for Sunday, Sept. 4, 2016.

  • Kyle Busch's Darlington throwback scheme honoring Dale Jarrett: With the help of reigning NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Kyle Busch and 1999 NASCAR champion Dale Jarrett, Interstate Batteries revealed the paint scheme that will appear on the #18 Interstate Batteries Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota for the Bojangles' Southern 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race Sept. 6 at Darlington Raceway in South Carolina. The paint scheme Busch will race is a replica of the original design Jarrett raced to victory in the 1993 Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway - the first ever Sprint Cup Series win for JGR and Interstate Batteries. In addition to appearing on the #18 entry for Jarrett's Daytona 500 victory, the Interstate Batteries scheme was run for the first two years of JGR's foray into NASCAR's top series during the 1992 and 1993 seasons. The 2016 NASCAR season marks the 25th anniversary for JGR and its relationship with founding partner Interstate Batteries.(Interstate Batteries), see an image of the car on the #18 team paint schemes page.(5-17-2016)

  • First appearance for Busch Light on the #4: Kevin Harvick's #4 Chevrolet SS for Stewart-Haas Racing will feature Busch Light for the first time during this weekend's 400-mile NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event at Richmond International Raceway. It marks the first appearance for a Busch brand on the #4 since February's season-opening non-points Sprint Unlimited during Speedweeks at Daytona. While Busch Beer has a rich racing history dating back to 1978, Busch Light, which was introduced to the public in 1989, will make its debut as a primary sponsor in the Sprint Cup Series. Busch Beer's history as a primary sponsor in the Sprint Cup Series dates back to the first race of the 1979 season, when NASCAR champion Cale Yarborough drove Junior Johnson's iconic #11 car to a third-place finish at Riverside International Raceway. Yarborough drove the #11 Busch Beer car for the entire 1979 and 1980 seasons. He went on to score 10 wins, 38 top-five finishes, 44 top-10s, 15 poles and led 4,130 laps over the 62-race span. This weekend marks the first of four appearances by Busch Light on the #4 Chevrolet SS in 2016. It will next appear on the #4 Chevrolet SS in the non-points-paying Sprint All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway, before appearing in July at Kentucky Speedway and Martinsville Speedway in October.(Stewart-Haas Racing), see an image of the car on the #4 team paint schemes page.(4-21-2016)

The Credit One Bank signature blue paint scheme can also be seen on the #1 Chevrolet later this season at Daytona International Speedway and Dover Speedway (Oct. 2). Credit One Bank, introduced earlier this year as the "Official Credit Card of NASCAR", offers full spectrum credit card products, and is among the top 10 largest Visa credit card issuers in the United States.

For its sixth season in NASCAR, Drive to End Hunger will be primary sponsor of the #5 Chevrolet SS in two Sprint Cup races -- Aug. 20 at Bristol Motor Speedway and Nov. 6 at Texas Motor Speedway -- and featured as an associate sponsor of the team in all other events. Unprecedented for a social cause, Drive to End Hunger was launched by AARP and AARP Foundation in 2011 via a primary sponsorship of Hendrick Motorsports and four-time NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon. Utilizing education, engagement and collaboration, it has donated more than 34 million meals. The No. 5 Drive to End Hunger Chevy will feature a new paint scheme for the 2016 season. The design uses a black background with candy apple red and white accents, highlighted by a sleek matte finish. The hood will showcase a larger Drive to End Hunger "Forked D" logo.(Hendrick Motorsports), see an image of the car on the #5 team paint schemes page.(4-20-2016)

  • Kulwicki throwback scheme for Smith at Darlington UPDATE: #7-Regan Smith and Tommy Baldwin Racing will run a special throwback scheme at Darlington Raceway that pays tribute to 1992 Sprint Cup Chamipon Alan Kulwicki. The car, sponsored by Nikko and Road Rippers resembles the #7 Hooters car driven by Kulwicki.(4-9-2016)
    UPDATE: Tommy Baldwin Racing's #7 Chevrolet will pay tribute to 1992 NASCAR Cup champion Alan Kulwicki during Darlington Raceway's throwback weekend in September. The #7 Road Rippers/Toy State design echoes the familiar paint scheme that Kulwicki drove to Victory Lane in three of his five career wins. "We're proud to be part of such a unique promotion that helps connect fans to the history of NASCAR," said Toy State President, Andy Friess. "It's a privilege to recognize Alan Kulwicki as a champion, and as a man admired by so many, both inside and outside of the sport."
    "It's an honor for us to pay tribute to a true champion of our sport," said team owner Tommy Baldwin. "Sharing the car number is a great way to celebrate his accomplishments, it is even more special because Alan achieved success as an independent team. We're grateful to Darlington Raceway and NASCAR for giving us such a special platform."(Tommy Baldwin Racing), see an image of the car on the #7 team paint schemes page.(4-20-2016)

  • Dale Jr. unveils special Buddy Baker scheme at Darlington UPDATE: Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Nationwide unveiled a #88 special paint scheme for the Bojangles' Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway on Wednesday, April 13th. Earnhardt will drive a paint scheme version of Buddy Baker's #28 Gray Ghost car that Baker drove in 1980, winning the Daytona 500. Earnhardt ran a similar scheme to pay tribute to the National Guard and Baker's "Gray Ghost" car in the 2008 All Star race. See images of the 2016 scheme on the #88 Team Schemes page (4-13-2016)
    UPDATE: In partnership with Darlington Raceway, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Nationwide revealed the #88 Nationwide Insurance Gray Ghost Chevy that Earnhardt will drive in the Southern 500 during Labor Day weekend in September. The 2016 throwback car design honors Buddy Baker's #28 Gray Ghost paint scheme, which was made famous by Baker when he won the 1980 Daytona 500. "The track is the perfect place to unveil our throwback weekend paint scheme. This place has so much history and has served our sport so well," said Dale Earnhardt Jr. "I appreciate Nationwide's enthusiasm to be involved and their appreciation for the history of the sport as well. It certainly shines through with this paint scheme. It's my favorite paint scheme."
    While Earnhardt uses this opportunity to honor NASCAR's storied heritage, this paint scheme is also a way for Nationwide to pay homage to its own past. This year, Nationwide celebrates its 90th anniversary on April 14. Earnhardt's throwback paint scheme for the Southern 500 features colors and logos used by Nationwide during the same time that Baker's original Gray Ghost was on the track, keeping in line with this year's Darlington throwback theme. The orange Nationwide Insurance logo with the "Nationwide is on your side" tagline was used in the late 1970s and early 1980s, and also matches up with the original orange logo from the Gray Ghost that ran during the same time period.
    "Nationwide is excited to take part in this year's throwback paint scheme program," said Jim McCoy, Director of Sports Marketing for Nationwide. "We hope it reminds people that Nationwide has a long history of being there for our members when they need us most. We take great pride in being able to protect their needs just as we protect the needs of Dale and the Earnhardt family. We look forward to seeing the Gray Ghost on the track, and hopefully in Victory Lane, on September 4." This year's Southern 500 will focus on the 1975-84 era of NASCAR, a revolutionary time period when iconic drivers such as Baker, Bobby Allison, Cale Yarborough, Dale Earnhardt Sr. and Darrell Waltrip left their imprints on stock car racing. "We're so appreciative of Dale, Nationwide and Hendrick Motorsports for their support of our throwback race weekend," Darlington Raceway President Chip Wile said. "Dale's Gray Ghost paint scheme is a wonderful reminder of our sport's storied history. To honor a NASCAR legend like Buddy Baker in this way is what our Tradition Continues throwback weekend is all about."(PR)(4-13-2015)

  • Waltrip inspired Throwback scheme for Stenhouse, Jr.: Ricky Stenhouse Jr. knew exactly what iconic #17 car he wanted to race in this year's Southern 500 Throwback Weekend at Darlington Raceway. It had to be the orange and white #17 that Darrell Waltrip drove to his first win in 1975. "Darrell Waltrip is one of the icons in our sport and has helped build NASCAR into the sport it is today," said Stenhouse. "It is a huge honor to be able to run the 1975 throwback paint scheme of Darrell's at Darlington. Darrell's last win was at Darlington so only seems fitting that we get his throwback paint scheme in victory lane on Labor Day weekend and have Darrell celebrate with us." Waltrip was 28 years old when he put the field two laps down in his orange and blue #17 on his way to victory lane at Nashville Speedway. He would go on to win a total of 84 Sprint Cup Series races and three Championships throughout a career that spanned three decades. "It's an honor to have this car run in the Southern 500," said Waltrip. "I got my first win at Nashville with that paint scheme but I got my last win in Darlington so it will be a special race weekend for me. I missed the throwback weekend in Darlington last year and regretted it. You can bet I won't miss this one and I'll be rooting for the 17!"(Roush Fenway Racing, see an image of the car on the #17 team paint schemes page.(4-11-2017)

"NASCAR is an excellent platform for Bass Pro Shops and we are pleased to continue our strong alignments with Tony Stewart, Ty Dillon and Jamie McMurray."(Furniture Row Racing)(1-19-2016)

  • Lionel taking over mass-distribution rights to NASCAR Diecasts: NASCAR licensee Lionel Racing has assumed mass-distribution rights for NASCAR's diecast collection, expanding its prior role that saw it previously sell to collectors. The 115-year-old toy maker, which became a licensee of the sanctioning body in 2010 and takes over from Spin Master, will now sell its NASCAR Authentics diecast collection at retailers like Wal-Mart, Target and Toys "R" Us. Lionel President Howard Hitchcock ... expects that the company will "easily" grow at a double-digit clip thanks to the new rights it has picked up.

The company, which outside of NASCAR also has an exclusive deal with NHRA's John Force Racing and does some work in the sprint car space, is eyeing digital tie-ins that can be a part of diecasts in the future.(Sports Business Daily)(1-19-2016)

  • Mountain Dew sponsoring Earnhardt, Kahne, Elliott: Fans will be seeing a lot more Mountain Dew at the racetrack starting this season.

  • Lionel Racing announce best-selling diecast of 2015: #88-Dale Earnhardt Jr. and #24-Jeff Gordon didn't just have the top two die-cast cars of the year, they dominated the list of best-selling cars which was unveiled today by Lionel Racing - The Official Die-Cast of NASCAR. "Since we began publishing our top 10 list in 2011, we haven't seen such a dominant performance by two drivers as we have this year," said Howard Hitchcock, President of Lionel Racing. "Their sales numbers are a testament both to their impact on the sport and their ability to connect with the most passionate NASCAR fans - our collectors - in a big way." Earnhardt's new primary paint scheme drove sales of his #88 Nationwide Insurance die-cast to the top spot, while Gordon's wildly popular throwback, the #24 Axalta Rainbow Chevy, was the company's second biggest seller. "We knew when the Axalta Rainbow car was first announced that this would be one of the most important die-cast of the year to longtime fans of the sport," Hitchcock said. "I think we were just as thrilled as Gordon's fans were to see this iconic paint scheme on track in his final year of competition." The only driver to make the Lionel Racing list that wasn't named Earnhardt or Gordon was Chase Elliott. Elliott's #25 NAPA Chevy die-cast ranked a solid sixth. "Elliott's popularity with NASCAR fans is incredibly impressive when you consider he has competed in the sport for just two years," Hitchcock said. "That fan appeal is directly reflected in his sales numbers - his Cup debut car outsold several of our historically best-selling drivers." The 2015 Top 10 list is below:
    Dale Earnhardt Jr. #88 Nationwide Insurance Chevy
    Jeff Gordon. #24 Axalta Rainbow Chevy
    Dale Earnhardt Jr. #88 Mountain Dew/Dewshine Chevy
    Dale Earnhardt Jr. #88 Nationwide Insurance/Talladega Win Chevy
    Jeff Gordon #24 3M Chevy

  • Dale Earnhardt's Black GM Goodwrench Chevrolet Crowned "Lord of the Schemes": In the beginning, there were 64 paint schemes. Fourteen weeks and six rounds later, only one remains. And it's one of the most iconic paint schemes in NASCAR history. Dale Earnhardt's black GM Goodwrench Chevrolet (60.4% of the votes) beat out Earnhardt's yellow and blue Wrangler Chevrolet (39.6%) in the championship round of Lionel Racing's "Lord of the Schemes" bracket challenge. The challenge began on Wednesday, August 19 - on the heels of the announcement that Jeff Gordon would be bringing back his popular rainbow-designed car at Bristol Motor Speedway - and ended on Wednesday, November 18. More than 138,000 votes were received throughout the campaign's run. Lionel Racing, The Official Die-Cast of NASCAR, hosted the bracket challenge on its Facebook page. Earnhardt first slipped into the seat of the black #3 GM Goodwrench Chevrolet in the 1988 season opener at Daytona International Speedway. Although he had already won 31 races and claimed three of his seven titles by this point, some of his best racing still lay ahead. He piloted the car for the next 13 seasons before passing away after sustaining injuries in a last-lap accident in the 2001 Daytona 500. During this span, he won four championships (1990-91, 1993-94) and celebrated in Victory Lane 45 times, including his memorable 1998 DAYTONA 500 victory. At the conclusion of the race, as Earnhardt steered his car to Victory Lane, crew members from every team lined pit road to congratulate the already legendary driver on winning the "Great American Race" after 20 attempts. Before facing the #3 Wrangler Chevrolet in the final round, the winning paint scheme faced an admirable lineup of contenders. In the first round, the #3 GM Goodwrench Chevrolet went up against Tony Stewart's #20 The Home Depot/It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown Pontiac. It was then pitted against Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s #8 Budweiser/Intimidator Chevrolet in the second round. In the third round, the black GM Goodwrench paint scheme battled Davey Allison's #28 Havoline Ford followed by a match-up with Petty's #43 STP Pontiac. In the semifinals, the winning paint scheme squared off against another of Earnhardt's paint schemes - the #3 Goodwrench/Silver Select Chevrolet - before the championship round.(Lionel Racing)(11-20-2015)

"I think the car turned out great and hope everybody likes it," said Elliott, who thanked NAPA AUTO PARTS for letting him make "a few decisions" throughout the design process. "They were really open and willing to some of the ideas that we had. The light blue stripes actually came off of their drag car that Ron Capps runs. So it's kind of cool to keep it all in the family and I think it turned out pretty cool." Elliott was joined on set by Hendrick Motorsports owner Rick Hendrick, and their appearance was simulcast in New York City's Times Square on the giant FOX video screen. "I'm so excited," Hendrick said. "What he did in the XFINITY Series last year and winning the championship, and what we've seen out of him when he gets into the Cup cars now, I can't wait to see him take it on next year."(Hendrick Motorsports.
