Every NASCAR fan has a favorite paint scheme or two, myself included. I actually LOVE when my favorite drivers run special or alternate paint schemes- like the throwback scheme Tony will be running at Darlington’s upcoming race! Lionel Racing (yes they of the diecasts) are asking fans to vote to help them decide which is the most iconic NASCAR paint scheme. Over the next several months fans with facebook accounts will be asked to participate by voting on their favorite paint schemes. It all starts with 64 paints iconic classic paint schemes. Schemes are were randomly paired up bracket style and pitted against each other. All you have to do as a fan is go through and choose which theme you like the best between two you like the best. It will then be narrowed down pitting only the round one winners against each other in the next round, etc. It’s easy and fun and it doesn’t take long (I know- I have already voted for this first round). Then make sure that you continue to return and vote in subsequent rounds.
You vote on the Lionel Racing Facebook Page here.
After already voting in round one I have only two things to say:
1. I am 90% sure I know which paint scheme will win. I am also 99.9% sure that I know which two will be the in the finals. It will be interesting to see if I am correct.
2. The most iconic paint scheme to me? Didn’t even make the list. Not quite sure what that says about me. While I won’t tell you which paint scheme it was- I will tell you this: it was not a Tony Stewart Paint Scheme and a throwback version of this paint scheme will be raced during the race at Darlington.
BTW Tony fans- two of Tony’s paint schemes are in the list.
Vote now…and don’t forget to go back and vote in subsequent rounds. The winning paint scheme will be announced the week before the Homestead Championship race.
