Not to take anything away from Denny Hamlin’s thrilling victory in Sunday’s Bojangles’ Southern 500, but the event at Darlington Raceway will be remembered for the eye-popping paint schemes.
In fact, Hamlin — who surged to victory lane after race-leader Martin Truex Jr. got a flat tire on the second-to-last lap — ran one of the coolest paint jobs of any driver. But he certainly wasn’t alone.
Not every Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver ran a vintage paint scheme Sunday night, but the one ones who did — Danica Patrick Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Chase Elliott, to name a few — really stood out.
With that said, click through the gallery below to see some of the memorable paint schemes from Sunday’s throwback race at Darlington:
