Although Monster Energy Cup Series teams are not racing this weekend, they’re still busy preparing for the Sept. 3 Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway.

Roush Fenway Racing and Circle Sport with The Motorsports Group have each announced throwback schemes, adding to the many that have been announced.

Trevor Bayne‘s No. 6 AdvoCare Ford will mirror the paint scheme run during Roush Fenway Racing’s first two seasons with NASCAR Hall of Famer Mark Martin. The scheme, originally featuring Stroh Light, was on the car when Martin won the organization’s first victory in 1989 at North Carolina Motor Speedway.

“It is such an honor to run this paint scheme in Darlington,” said Bayne in a statement. “It’s really special to be driving a car that is honoring the beginning of Roush Fenway Racing. This organization has meant so much to me and my career as a driver and it means a lot to me to be the one who has the privilege of returning this scheme to the track in Darlington.”

Jeffrey Earnhardt‘s No. 33 hulu Chevrolet will feature a throwback look to Dale Earnhardt Sr.’s Busch Series Lowes Food car in 1989.
