DARLINGTON, S.C. — After a week off, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers return to the track this weekend for the Bojangles’ Southern 500 at Darlington Sunday.
Since the Southern 500 returned to Labor Day weekend, a new tradition has been born — NASCAR Throwback Weekend. It has become one of the most anticipated events of the year, as the sport honors its past and the drivers run paint schemes from throughout the history of NASCAR.
This weekend will be no different, and while the tradition began with the Cup Series, many teams in the NASCAR Xfinity Series have jumped on the bandwagon and are running throwback schemes this weekend as well.
Below are the ones we’ve seen so far — we are sure there will be some surprises as the weekend arrives. Enjoy a trip down memory lane, as we look forward to seeing these cars on the track this weekend.
