Dale Earnhardt Jr. may be driving the Valvoline car on Sept. 6, 2015, at Darlington Raceway, but thanks to a "throwback" paint scheme, his fans will likely feel as if they’re watching a race more in line with his father’s early career and track opponents.

Earnhardt and Valvoline’s presence on the Darlington track at the upcoming NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event will pay homage to the brand’s storied history in motor sports with an early-1980s look inspired by Valvoline cars driven by some of the era’s racing icons, including Cale Yarborough, Ron Bouchard, Neil Bonnett and Buddy Baker.

The retro-themed paint scheme mimics the first can Budweiser produced in 1936, which was gold and featured an eagle flying through the Anheuser-Busch stylized "A" with five stars above and below the winged crest.

AdvoCare and Roush Fenway Racing driver Trevor Bayne have gone back in time to 1998 for their paint scheme on the No. 6 AdvoCare Ford Fusion in preparation for the "Southern 500" NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) event at Darlington Raceway on Sunday night, Sept. 6.

The scheme, which was featured on the No. 6 Ford during one of the most successful runs in NASCAR history, harkens back to the 1998 and 1999 seasons when it was driven by former Roush Fenway driver Mark Martin. During that timeframe, Martin recorded nine wins, 41 top-five finishes, 52 top-10 finishes and had an overall average finish of ninth in the combined 77 races run in the two NSCS seasons. During that two-year span Martin led an astonishing 2,430 laps.-Roush Fenway Racing
