The “Silver Bullet” is back.

StarCom Racing has announced that for this weekend’s Bojangles’ Southern 500 at Darlington (6 p.m. ET Sunday on NBCSN), Landon Cassill‘s No. 00 Chevrolet will be a throwback to Sterling Marlin’s early 2000s Coors Light Dodge.

The paint scheme is the one Marlin had when he earned his last Cup win in March 2002 at Darlington.

Marlin, 62, suffers from Parkinson’s Disease, a debilitating neurological malady that slowly robs an individual of movement in various body parts, particularly use of the hands. Marlin recently returned to racing after recovering from a series of brain surgeries.

StarCom Racing has partnered with Michael J. Fox Foundation for the event. Fox, known for his role in the “Back to the Future” movies, also suffers from Parkinson’s. The team will be selling a t-shirt to commemorate the race, with $5 from each sale going to the foundation.
