This week has been a disheartening one for Michael Waltrip Racing and its fans with the team moving to part-time in 2016. But with the Darlington race coming up, MWR has a special paint scheme to unveil for Clint Bowyer to honor the passing of Buddy Baker.
The only problem? Well, a redditor revealed it first.
While touring the Michael Waltrip Racing facility, a redditor snapped a shot of the throwback paint scheme for the Southern 500.
Bowyer referenced the retro look following Buddy Baker’s death with a tweet about his RC Cola car. The No. 15 machine is completely hand painted, according to the redditor, and even has Baker’s name below the windows.
Several components of the car caught our eye, but the best part was the spoiler. The low-drag package will be back for Darlington, so expect not only beautiful cars, but also epic racing. For a track that’s already Too Tough To Tame, Sept. 6 will be special.
