It’s that time of year again when NASCAR Cup, Xfinity and Camping World Truck series teams start sharing throwback paint schemes they’ll run at Darlington Raceway during its yearly throwback weekend.
This time, the celebration is held May 7-9 on Mother’s Day weekend to unite fans of all generations.
We’re doing things a bit different this year at Frontstretch; we’ll keep an updated list here as teams reveal their throwback liveries. Be sure to check back often as more schemes are revealed.
If a driver isn’t listed, the team hasn’t announced a throwback or it opted not to participate in the theme.

I hope Chase wrecks on Lap One with that paint scheme.
Did you feel the same way when Greg Biffle ran it a few years back?
Absolutely. Although it’s worse that Chase is doing it.
Chase’s car looks really good. I was a big Kulwicki fan. Still, it will look funny with a bowtie on the front.
Chase needs to have some HOOTER’S girls in his pit box and victory circle.
Poor Matt McLaughlin will have to choose between his hatred for the Elliott family and his adoration of Alan Kulwicki. I’m betting his hatred wins out.
You know what Jo your actually a b*tch hooters is chases sponsor hooters wants their champ to throwback to their original champ
that’s no secret
I think bubba’s “depends discreet” are full now. Long stinky race for him.
You know what, Kobe? I have changed my mind about that. I hope Chase does well with the paint scheme and I understand why Hooters wants it. I’m just not a fan of Kulwicki for the fan’s adoration of a very troubled man and unworthy hero.
“I’m just not a fan of Kulwicki for the fan’s adoration of a very troubled man and unworthy hero.”
Serious question: Please elaborate/clarify what your statement means.
If Alan Kulwicki was the “creepy toad” and unworthy hero as you claim, I doubt that his team members like Paul Andrews, Tony Gibson, etc. would have been as loyal, and still speak highly him. I’ve never seen as much negative written about the guy as the comments you post.
Kulwicki had a reputation as being almost impossible to work with. Of course, the survivors like Andrews and Gibson aren’t going to talk trash about the dead “hero.” Kulwicki supposedly lost his good sponsorship with Xerex because of his behavior, yet no one talks about that anymore. Or the fact that he fired Ray Evernham. Or that he refused to talk with the press or pretty much anyone at all. Just an all-around neurotic jerk who benefits from the “dead hero syndrome.”
I’ve always read that Kulwicki was extremely socially awkward. That doesn’t make him a bad person. I think the sport was better off when the less polished people like Kulwicki, Dale Sr, Geoff Bodine, etc could succeed.
I don’t see why people get on here and talk s*** about someone who’s a professional athlete.the man had the skills to be a race car driver and no matter how much s*** you talk about him.thats not going to change that..and you know what they say about opinions. Everyone has one.
The top standouts for me are
-Logano’s Andretti car
-DaleJr ’01 MLB All-Star car with his and MW’s image on the side panel(nice touch!)
-Danny Bohn’s own ‘Country Time’ throwback to Mikey’s #30 ride from ’89
Would be nice if original sponsors of the throw back cars would do a one-off race. I realize that some of the companies that sponsored cars back then have merged or been bought by other companies but wouldnt hurt them to do it for one race. Without the original sponsors kind of ruins it for me. More of a gimmick than anything.
Really? Couldn’t do a Ricky Rudd, Terry Labonte, Kyle Busch (You have the same first fucking name!), or Mark Martin? Not even Kasey Kahne’s Quaker State ride from 2012? That was his 3rd Coca-Cola 600 win. You do a throwback to yourself and show off your stupid ass kid picture because you think it’s cute/funny? You were an ugly little shut. Fuck you Kyle Larson. AND FUCK RYAN BLAND-EY AND DULL ASS TRUEX FOR DOING THE SAME SHIT. Truex you can’t do an Elliott Sadler or Jeremy Mayfield. Not even a Casey Atwood? Blaney you can’t do a Ryan Newman or Jeremy Mayfield? It’s all about you? The Stenhouse Tide throwback looks like shit and has been done before. The Kulwicki one has been done before, Chase, you ugly bastard. And whoever the fuck is in the 99 (millennials all have the same names) could’ve done a Jeff Burton or Carl Edwards throwback. They deserve some respect you selfish bastards. I hope you all pile up within half a lap. You do that every weekend anyways because you punks aren’t ever going to be as good as the retired veterans.
You have my vote for post of the year.
That post was an incoherent vulgar laundry list of complaints and insults. Typical for racing fans and FS followers in general. The stereotype of the standard NASCAR fan is alive and well. Lives in the past, fears the future and probably owns a lot of white sheets for use as apparel.
“That post was an incoherent vulgar laundry list of complaints and insults. ”
That’s what makes it so funny.
