The track’s annual throwback weekend, moved to Mother’s Day for this season, is headlined by Sunday’s Goodyear 400. Drivers competing in the Cup Series race will feature cars with various paint schemes celebrating NASCAR history.

With his paint scheme, Wallace and 23XI Racing will honor Wendell Scott, one of the first Black drivers in NASCAR, as well as the first to win a race on the sport’s highest level.

Yeah, that’s pretty cool.

The Goodyear 400 is scheduled to start at 3:30 p.m. ET. It should be one of the more eye-popping and entertaining NASCAR races of the year.

As for Wallace, he currently sits 21st in the standings and still is looking for the first Cup Series victory of his career.
