As COTA looms over this weekend, it’s time to take a look at some of the best paint schemes that will run on the Austin track. Here is what the teams have revealed so far:
Kaulig has posted their Xfinity series lineup for this weekend. AJ Allmendinger will pilot the No. 10 car this weekend with Celsius’ orange, white, and black onboard. As you can see in Kaulig’s Tweet here, the No. 10 car has finished in the top-10 in all five races thus far in 2023. Can The Dinger continue the streak?
Daniel Hemric’s No. 11 car is wrapped in Chevy Accessories this weekend while Chandler Smith’s Chevy will sport the white and teal Quick The Products colors.
On the Cup side, AJ Allmendinger will pilot this nice-looking white and lime green Farm Smart entry while Justin Haley’s ride will mirror AJ’s Celsius colors on the No. 10 Xfinity ride.
Kyle Busch Motorsports
Chase Purdy will be driving this Bama Buggies black and red Silverado this weekend at COTA while the boss-man returns following his win at Las Vegas to attempt the back-to-back in his also black and red No. 51 Chevy.
Busch will be sponsored by Zariz Transport.
Live Fast Motorsports
Live Fast Motorsports will sport black and yellow Zeigler colors. Josh Bilicki will be behind the wheel.
Legacy Motor Club
Ole 7-time champ Jimmie Johnson returns for this weekend’s race at COTA. He’ll be back in his No. 84 Chevy for Legacy Motor Club, which he co-owns, and will be in this…very blue paint scheme? To be honest, it’s kind of dull but, hey, we’ll be interested in seeing how Johnson does in his first non-superspeedway race for the team.
Bad Brad is hoping to ride his current wave of success into COTA this weekend. His No. 6 Mustang will also be sponsored by Wyndham Rewards, like another popular own-driver on this list. At least Brad’s car looks pretty cool.
RFK teammate, Chris Buescher, will pilot this No. 17 Ford sponsored by Fifth Third Bank.
Richard Childress Racing
RCR revealed their lineup for both their Xfinity and Cup entries this weekend. They’re schemes we’ve seen before but they’re pretty classic.
Rick Ware Racing/SHR
2009 Formula 1 World Champion, Jenson Button, will make his NASCAR debut in the Cup Series this weekend at COTA. He will drive the #15 Mobil 1 Mustang for Rick Ware Racing, though the car is being prepared by Stewart-Haas Racing.
Now, let’s take a look at the legit SHR cars. It’s pretty much same old, same old in the Xfinity series with Cole Custer driving the No. 00 Haas Automation Ford, as Riley Herbst will be in the No. 98 Monster Energy Mustang.
On the Cup side of things, Kevin Harvick in his #4EVER Tour heads to COTA for the final time. His #4 Ford will be sponsored by Mobil 1 but unlike another SHR prepared car with Jensen Button, Harvick’s car will be all white.
Team Penske’s trio of drivers will sport some familiar paint schemes this weekend as well.
Daniel Suarez will be sporting Freeway insurance colors this weekend in Austin for Team Trackhouse.
Wood Brothers Racing
The Wood Brother’s No. 21 Mustang will sport the familiar red, white, and blue Ford Motorcraft colors this weekend at COTA.
Well, that was all the paint schemes that have been revealed thus far. We have a few typical ones in there along with a couple of stunners. What was your favorite?
