In recent years, special paint schemes have become so commonplace in NASCAR that there’s really very few of them that truly are special any more.
Not so for Tony Stewart this weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Stewart’s familiar No. 14 Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolet has a new and innovative look to it for his final race as a full-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver.
The paint scheme on the three-time NASCAR champion’s Chevy fades from black up front to gray and then to silver in the back. The hood of the No. 14 carries pictorial highlights of Stewart’s career and the rear end lists all 49 of his Cup wins. Pretty cool stuff.
But what really sets it apart is that Stewart’s car has been signed by each of the roughly 280 employees at Stewart-Haas Racing, who put their names on the car to send off their boss.
That indeed qualifies as special, just like Stewart’s career has been.
