You’re telling me that a car with Menards as a sponsor can’t tone down the use of bright yellow to allow the other sponsor(s) to shine through? Weird.

I don't know if this is the reasoning, but to me, this is a Dickies car with Menards on the rear quarter-panel whereas the examples above are Menards cars with various different sponsors on the hood.  That distinction may matter to Menards when they're paying to put their name on the car.

 

I'm a fan of the bright yellow myself.  I would especially like it if I was a fan of the driver since it's easy to track on restarts or pack racing.  That was one of the perks for me as a Gordon fan growing up -- the car was always easy to find in a pack.  Even the Drive to End Hunger paint schemes (which were really underrated, imo) had the distinctive yellow numbers.

As another Gordon fan, the DuPont schemes will always be the best, but Jeff Gordon has never driven an ugly primary scheme in my opinion. Even the 2012 DuPont one, which was on the weaker side, was great. The AARP schemes were great, the first one was incredible and one of the 24's best schemes out there.

Was 2011 the first year of the AARP sponsorship?  I'm partial to the 2014 one...

Yeah, 2011 was the first AARP year. This is what it looked like:

It was a really nice scheme.

 

While the flames are very nice, I'm a big fan of the Rainbow Warrior scheme.
