NASCAR Preview: Paint Schemes For Crown Royal/Brickyard 400

When the NASCAR Sprint Cup Circuit hits Indianapolis Motor Speedway this weekend for the Crown Royal/Brickyard 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 are also important because they obviously want to win for whatever sponsor or cause they are running the different scheme for.

Here is a special peek at this weeks schemes.

Not a lot of big-name drivers will be sporting special paint schemes this weekend and as a result of that it seems very unlikely that a special scheme will find its way to Victory Lane. However, if I had to pick a driver with the best chance I would go with Juan Pablo Montoya. In the past while in the No. 42 machine, Montoya had some success in this event. While I would not call him a favorite to win this weekend, I would say that this is a dark house to surprise some people. Also keep an eye on Greg Biffle, a win here would turn his season around and put him into the chase.
