Sports-themed NASCAR paint schemes

Recommended Posts

Great thread!

A few more I can think of (NHRA, not NASCAR):

Jerry Toliver's assortment of WWF schemes from the early 2000s:

The Rock

The Undertaker

and the XFL

A few years ago, I did some NHL-themed liveries for my NASCAR Racing 4 computer game.

^Nice call on the Earnhardt! Things like that are why I started the thread.

This one's a bit of a reach, but with Joe Gibbs owning the car, Bobby Labonte had a few interesting helmet schemes in the 1990s:

I remember seeing a wall full of these at a restaurant in Charlotte once. Pretty sure he wore at least a few of them.

Wasn't just the helmet. This paint scheme was used when Gibbs went into the Pro Football HOF:

great thread Shane!

Austin Dillon 3 had a Panthers helmet last year too

i need to post up some of the diecast Panthers cars (not race run, just diecast reproduction) i have from 2003 and 2004.

i also worked with the Nadeau 9 NWO designs and the Dallenbach 75 WCW Nitro (Turner Networks sponsorship) in addition to the Cartoon Network, and the Dinner & a Movie schemes too.

Perennial back-of-the-field team BK Racing and driver Matt DiBenedetto ran this JMU car at Richmond this year.

Fun note: pro poker player and partier Dan Bilzerian sponsored this car at the other Richmond race:

If we're counting wrestling as a sport, some more motorsports paint schemes:

Madusa is a 2-time champion driver, former wrestler.

And there was once a bunch of WWF/WCW-themed trucks.
