9-11 Remembrance Paint Schemes

Sunday marks the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and many NASCAR Nationwide Series and Sprint Cup Series teams will pay tribute to those whose lives were lost and changed that day. Below are some of the many paint schemes you will see during the Nationwide and Sprint Cup Series races this weekend at Richmond International Raceway.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr will drive the No. 6 Fastenal/Honoring Our Heroes Ford Mustang that will pay tribute to the lives lost in Shanksville, PA.
Danica Patrick will drive the No. 7 GoDaddy.com/GetYour.Net Chevrolet. This paint scheme as you can see is not the traditional GoDaddy green. There are 2,976 stars on the car in honor of the lives lost in the Twin Towers.
Trevor Bayne will drive the No. 16 Fastenal/Honoring Our Heroes Ford Mustang will carry a tribute to the lives lost in New York in the Twin Tower Attack.
Carl Edwards will drive the No.60 Fastenal/Honoring Our Heroes Ford Mustang to honor those who lost their lives in the attack in Washington D.C. NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Paint Schemes:

Tony Stewart will drive the No. 14 Office Depot/Honoring Our Heroes Toyota Camry in honor of the lives lost on 9-11 and in honor of national heroes FDNY firefighter, Stephen Siller.

Greg Biffle will be behind the wheel of the No. 16 3M/Honoring Our Heroes Ford Mustang.

Kyle Busch is the driver in the seat of the No. 18 M&Ms Red, White, and Blue/Honoring Our Heroes Toyota Camry. This paint scheme is reminiscent of the No. 36 September 11th memorial car driven by Kenny Schrader at Dover International Speedway follow the 9-11-01 attacks.

In a moving tribute to the fallen heroes of the 9-11 attacks, David Gililand will pilot the No. 34 Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation Ford Fusion. The 34-3 on the side of the car stands for the 343 firefighters who lost their lives while trying to save others. Front Row Motorsports has donated the entire paint scheme for this very important cause.

Ryan Newman will honor the victims of the Pentagon attack in Washington D.C with this US Army paint scheme.

A Special Thanks to Matt at TheSundayHauler.com for the images.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each die-cast benefits the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation and its efforts to build smart homes for three severly wounded United States servicemen. Stephen Siller was an FDNY firefighter who lost his life on 9-11-01 when trying to rescue his fellow Americans. Siller's family began the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation to help others in his name. For more information on the foundation, please visit http://www.tunneltotowersrun.org/.
