NASCAR: Top-Five Texas Paint Schemes


Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

This weekend the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will run the Duck Commander 500 from the Texas Motor Speedway in Ft. Worth, TX. This will be the seventh race of the season and it will feature three drivers looking for their seventh straight top-10 finish to open the 2015 season. When the green flag waves on Sunday there will be more than a dozen special paint schemes on the track. Below you will find the top-five paint schemes from this weekend’s race.

Be sure to leave a comment and let us know which one you like the best.

No. 5 – Greg Biffle (Safety Kleen)

This weekend in Texas Greg Biffle will look to come out of the week off and have a strong showing for Roush Fenway Racing. Through six races in 2015, Biffle is the only RFR driver to have a top-10 finish. That finish was a 10th-place finish and it came almost two months ago back in the Daytona 500. Biffle’s Safety Kleen paint scheme is a sharp and loud paint scheme that his fans will have no issue spotting under the lights on Saturday. Hopefully Biffle can do his sponsor proud and bring home his second top-10 of the season.

No. 4 – Tony Stewart (Rush Trucks)

Tony Stewart will once again rock a special paint scheme this weekend. Stewart has run the Rush Trucks scheme before and this week he actually sent a special salute to truckers across the nation in partnership with his sponsor. On Saturday night Stewart will be looking for his first top-10 finish of the season. He has a pair of top-20 finishes in his last two races which is good considering his best finish in his first four races of 2015 was 30th. Stewart is starting to trend in the right direction and that needs to continue.

No. 3 – Carl Edwards (Stanley Racing For A Miracle)

Saturday night Carl Edwards will run a special Stanley paint scheme that boasts the ‘racing for a miracle’ mantra. The will not only be an awesome looking car but it will also be backing an even more awesome cause. When it comes to the race, Edwards will be looking to find consistency. Edwards hasn’t had a bad start to the season but it hasn’t been great either. Edwards seems primed to go on a run of a few top-10 finishes in a row and that could start this weekend in Texas.

No. 2 – Jeff Gordon (Panasonic)

Jeff Gordon will bring back the Panasonic scheme for the first time this season on Saturday night in Texas. Gordon ran this scheme with mixed results in 2014 but he will look to change that this season. Gordon is coming off of three straight top-10 finishes. While another top-10 finish would be great for the No. 24 team, one has to imagine that they want to win this weekend. The folks over at Panasonic most likely wouldn’t mind a win this weekend either.

No. 1 – Kyle Larson (Axe)

I know it’s still early in the season but Kyle Larson might have just taken the cake for the best paint scheme of 2015. The picture of this scheme simply doesn’t do it enough justice. This paint scheme under the lights in Texas is going to look fantastic. The other fantastic thing is that Larson will be behind the wheel of the No. 42 machine after missing the race in Martinsville. Larson seems to be 100 percent health wise and that means that the second-year driver will be gunning for his first win in Texas; a place where he just might get it.
