It is also worth noting that a handful of other drivers like Jimmie Johnson for example will also has a different scheme this week. However at the publishing of this article no photos of those schemes were available.

Of all of the drivers with special paint schemes this week it is hard to handicap who the favorite might be given the fact that it’s Talladega. Drivers like Tony Stewart, Clint Bowyer, Kasey Kahne, Greg Biffle and Austin Dillon have not won a race this season. Then you have guys like Michael Waltrip who always runs well here and David Ragan who won this race last year. You also have Kyle Busch in the mix who you would have to imagine wants that second win to tie Kevin Harvick and Joey Logano. The one thing that can be said is that since more than 1/4 of the cars running will have special paint schemes; the odds of one of those cars winning is better than most weeks.
