NASCAR At Charlotte: Coca-Cola 600 Paint Schemes

Not surprisingly, being that this is Memorial Day Weekend, the Coca-Cola 600 field will have quite a patriotic look as it does battle on the Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Sunday's race marks the kick-off event for the NASCAR Unites "Salute to America," a six-week program that runs from Charlotte through the July race at Daytona. Several cars are carrying full-on special paint schemes, while many others have red, white, and blue stars lining their regular paint scheme.

Kevin Harvick's No. 29 Budweiser Chevrolet will run this flag-themed race car for all six events of the Salute to America. Dale Earnhardt Jr's National Guard-sponsored Chevy has an added flair for this weekend. Jimmie Johnson is running the same red, white, and blue Chevrolet he raced to a win in last weekend's Sprint All-Star Race. Several other drivers, including Martin Truex Jr., Mark Martin, and Brad Keselowski have dedicated paint schemes for the 600.

Many of those who are running one of their sponsors' standard paint schemes have gotten into the patriotic act for the weekend. For example, here is Tony Stewart's No. 14 Office Depot Chevy with blue and white stars on the side skirts, spoiler, and rear sharkfin in addition to blue trim on the car number. has a full paint scheme chart for every Sprint Cup race. Head on over there and scroll down to the Coca-Cola 600 chart and click the links on the right hand side to view all of the NASCAR Unites paint schemes that will blaze around the track Sunday evening.
