NASCAR: Sneak Peek At Special Auto Club 400 Paint Schemes

When the NASCAR Sprint Cup Circuit hits Fontana this weekend for the Auto Club 400, several drivers will be sporting unique paint schemes. When your driver runs a different paint scheme it tends to make the race that much more exciting. For the drivers running different schemes is also important because they obviously want to win for whatever sponsor or cause they are running the different scheme for.

This weekend Greg Biffle will be running a special military scheme on his No. 16 machine. Biffle’s scheme is going to showcase 3M’s aerospace sector. This sector does has many applications, some of which are used in conjunction with military aircraft. Aside from the aerospace nod the No. 16 car will also feature a heavy army camouflage element to it. Aside from the aerospace sector, 3M produces numerous products that are used by the United States Armed Services.

Brian Vickers will not only have a unique paint scheme but also one that is very special to him. Vickers’ No. 55 car will rock the TREATMYCLOT.com logos. Vickers’ has battled and overcome blood clots not once, but twice in his young life. This paint scheme is designed to raise awareness of the dangers of blood clots and how life-threatening they can be. This special scheme is also being ran to correlate with Blood Clot Awareness Month.

Biffle and Vickers’ aren’t the only drivers with different schemes for the Auto Club 400. Below are some pictures of some of the other schemes that will be featured courtesy of NASCAR.com.
