(Editor's note: Vote now and all week long in this series which will feature the Darlington throwback paint schemes of all your favorite drivers).

Who do you like?

This is is your chance to vote now on which of the four Richard Childress Racing or JTG Racing drivers will be sporting the best throwback paint scheme for this Sunday's Bojangles' Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway.

Is it Austin Dillon's No. 3 throwback that pays tribute to his grandfather and boss, Richard Childress, whose Richard Childress Racing organization earned its first-ever victory with Ricky Rudd driving the No. 3 Piedmont Airlines car with the red, white and blue scheme in 1983? 

Or does Ryan Newman's throwback to Caterpillar's company image for its heavy equipment in the 1970s take the top spot? 

Paul Menard's Bojangles' Southern 500 throwback scheme pays tribute to a very specific event -- Al Unser Jr.'s 1993 Daytona 500 ride, which was the only appearance in a NASCAR Premier Series event for the two-time Indianapolis 500 winner. 

Finally, AJ Allmendinger brings a JTG Racing throwback paint scheme that's a nod to Bruce Hill's ride from the 1970s. Hill appeared in 100 NASCAR events and was awarded the 1975 Rookie of the Year Award. 

Each of the cars are listed below. 

Austin Dillon's American Ethanol red, white and blue paint scheme is an ode to Ricky Rudd's first victory for Richard Childress Racing in 1983.


Ryan Newman's No. 31 sports Caterpillar's logo for its heavy equipment from the 1970s. 

AJ Allmendinger's Kroger/Kingsford No. 47 car pays tribute to Bruce Hill, NASCAR's 1975 Rookie of the Year.
