Here Are the 2021 Darlington Throwback Schemes

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.

Cup

Chase Elliott

Throwback: Honors Alan Kulwicki and his 1992 Cup Series championship run in the Hooters No. 7 car. Coincidentally, Kulwicki narrowly defeated Bill Elliott for the 1992 title.

Joey Logano

Throwback: Carries the same colors that Mario Andretti’s car had when he won his first Formula 1 race in 1971. Andretti is the only driver to win Daytona 500, Indianapolis 500 and Formula 1 World Championship.

Xfinity

Josh Berry

Throwback: Commemorates Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s 2001 Pepsi 400 victory at Daytona International Speedway, the first Cup race at Daytona after Earnhardt Sr. passed away.

Ryan Ellis

Throwback: Honors Ryan’s grandfather Vic Ellis, who passed away in 1958.

Truck

Austin Hill

Throwback: Resembles NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee Mike Stefanik’s No. 16 Whelen Modified Tour car from 2010-2011.

  1. 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.
