There aren’t going to be many — if any — throwback paint schemes in the field of this year’s Bojangle’s Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway that strike as big of an emotional chord as Bubba Wallace’s No. 43 car.
The No. 43 Victory Junction Car will be a throwback to Adam Petty’s No. 45 Spree car back in the late 1990s.
Adam Petty, was a rising NASCAR star, who unfortunately passed away after a crash during practice at New Hampshire Motor Speedway for a NASCAR Xfinity Series race in May of 2000.
It will be really special to see these colors back on track at Darlington.
