The Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway is going to be special. Whether it’s the throwback schemes themed after former drivers like Clint Bowyer and Dale Earnhardt Jr. or old looks from the team itself like Trevor Bayne’s ride, there will be a wealth of great schemes to watch.

But Tommy Baldwin made sure his driver’s car stuck out by going back to his own roots. Alex Bowman will drive the traditional No. 7 machine at Darlington, but it will be outfitted with painted on nerf bars like the modified car Tom Baldwin, the owner’s father, drove in the NASCAR Modified Division.

Well this is pretty legit. Hope those nerf bars keep the body straight all night. #tootoughtotame #throwback

Bowman’s car will also don the 7NY (not shown in the main photo) and Tom Baldwin’s name across the top of the door on the car. It’s a decal that left TBR feeling a bit reminiscent after the reveal on Thursday.

While our list of the top 10 Darlington paint schemes has already been released, this one is sure to turn some heads thanks to its originality.

This late in the NASCAR throwback paint schemes race, teams have to show some serious originality to stand out from the pack. TBR does just that with this look to give racing fans of two different divisions in the sport a driver to root for on Sunday night.
