Leave a comment

Corey LaJoie and GoFas Racing will pay tribute to Dale Jarrett’s Xfinity Series career with their throwback paint scheme for this year’s Southern 500 (Sept. 1 on NBCSN).

LaJoie’s No. 32 Ford will be made to look like the No. 32 Nestle Crunch car Jarrett drove from 1990-91 in the Xfinity Series (then the Busch Series).

Jarrett won five times in that time, including twice at Darlington Raceway.

The Crunch-inspired scheme will have sponsorship from Keen Parts/

“The car looks great and I’ve always been a fan of Dale, so to carry this scheme around Darlington is awesome,” LaJoie said in a press release. “I think we did a great job keeping the scheme as close to the original as possible while incorporating the logos into it. I can’t thank Tom and TJ Keen enough for allowing us to run this design – it’s one of my favorite schemes. I might even have to shave myself a mustache so I don’t do the car a disservice.”

Ryan Blaney will boast a paint scheme inspired by Michael Waltrip in this year’s Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway (Sep. 1 on NBCSN).

Blaney revealed the scheme Wednesday for his No. 12 Ford on NASCAR America presents MotorMouths.

The scheme is based on the No. 30 Pennzoil Pontiac that Waltrip drove for owner Chuck Rider from 1991-95.


Here are the previous cars Blaney has driven for the Throwback Weekend at Darlington.


Blaney drove a scheme based on the car his father, Dave Blaney, used in the Cup Seres in 2003.


Blaney drove Kyle Petty’s 1987 CITGO scheme.


Blaney piloted David Pearson’s scheme from 1976.


In his first Throwback Weekend start, Blaney’s car had a mosaic of more than 2,0000 pictures depicting the history of Wood Brothers Racing.
