With its return to its traditional Labor Day weekend spot in 2015, Darlington Raceway’s Bojangles’ Southern 500 took a fresh look at NASCAR history with numerous throwback paint schemes. This year, Darlington is back at it with a fresh batch of throwback schemes for the race on Sunday, Sept. 4 – you can check them all out and vote for your favorite through Sept. 1 at NASCAR.com.
One former champion will be represented by two teams, as Alan Kulwicki’s “Underbird” from his 1992 championship run will be commemorated on Regan Smith’s No. 7 (Kulwicki’s number) and Greg Biffle’s No. 16 (featuring Hooter’s, Kulwicki’s sponsor).
Trevor Bayne’s No. 6 AdvoCare Ford will feature Mark Martin’s No. 6 Valvoline design from the 1996 and 1997 seasons.
Jamie McMurray’s No. 1 will feature Bill Elliott’s Mac Tonight McDonald’s paint scheme from 1997.
