Who do you like?
In our most diverse bracket yet, we have three teams battling it out for the best throwback paint scheme.
Do the soda-related BK Racing throwback schemes of David Ragan’s No. 23 Dr. Pepper ride and Matt DiBenedetto’s No. 83 Orange Crush quench your thirst?
Ragan’s No. 23 features the ‘I’m a Pepper’ slogan that has been iconic around the 23-flavored soda. DiBenedetto’s Orange Crush paint scheme goes back to the nostalgic design of the soda’s orange and blue look.
Martin Truex Jr. and Furniture Row Racing team up with Auto-Owners Insurance for a throwback design that pays homage to the company’s 100-year anniversary. The old-school look features a contrast between a lighter turquoise and a royal blue with the numbers and sponsor name in white.
Finally, Tommy Baldwin Racing and Regan Smith pay tribute to Alan Kulwicki with a similar paint scheme to what the 1992 Premier Series champion ran in three of his five career wins. Road Rippers/Toy State will serve as the title sponsor for Smith at the track where he scored his first and only career win in 2011.
Images of the cars are listed below.
