Plan B Sales has revealed the winner of a fan contest to submit designs for the No. 43 Chevrolet Bubba Wallace will drive in the March 17 Cup race at Auto Club Speedway.

The winner of the contest is Kyle Sykes.

The final scheme is based on one of three scheme that Sykes entered.

Fans can still order a “fan sponsorship package” to get their name placed on the car and to receive a diecast of the car.

UPDATE: Plan B Sales announced on Twitter that if it sells 2,000 of the “fan sponsorship packages” it will sponsor Wallace for a second race.

Jimmie Johnson reveals 2019 Ally Financial paint scheme

Hendrick Motorsports
7 Comments

Jimmie Johnson unveiled his paint scheme for the 2019 Cup season Friday, showing off what a No. 48 Chevrolet looks like when it’s not sponsored by Lowe’s.

Johnson revealed his Ally Financial-sponsored car during a segment on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” He made the reveal with Trevin, a 10-year-old who was there as part of the Make-A-Wish program. Johnson also invited Trevin, who suffers from cystic fibrosis, to attend the Daytona 500.

Ally is signed with Johnson and Hendrick Motorsports through the 2020 season. It replaces Lowe’s, which ended its relationship with the team after sponsoring Johnson since he made his first three Cup starts in 2001.

What might have been: Dale Earnhardt Jr. shares rejected Nationwide paint schemes

You never know when Dale Earnhardt Jr. will strike.

At any moment Earnhardt’s Twitter account could provide a valuable insight on the state of NASCAR, a Tweetstorm detailing the history of a short track car he raced or some random retro photos from NASCAR’s yesteryear.

On Thursday, the NBC Sports analyst provided a nice “What if?”

After a user posted a series of NASCAR paint schemes that never saw the light of day, Earnhardt shared an almost one minute video. The video included a multitude of concept Nationwide paint schemes for his old No. 88 Chevrolet at Hendrick Motorsports.

Watch the video in the tweet below.

For sake of comparison here are the primary Nationwide schemes that graced the No. 88 during Earnhardt’s tenure driving with the sponsor from 2015-17.
