CONCORD, N.C. -- Jimmie Johnson will take the track at Darlington Raceway one final time as a full-time driver this Sunday in a special No. 48 Ally Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE.

Johnson will pay homage to NASCAR legends Dale Earnhardt and Richard Petty with a unique combination paint scheme centered around Earnhardt's classic No. 3 ride and Petty's iconic No. 43. 

The three men all are seven-time Cup Series champions and are the only drivers in series history to have seven titles. Because of this, Johnson also will sport a "7x7x7" sticker on his Chevrolet.

Check out the video above to see the No. 48 machine get prepped for the first race of the 2020 playoffs. Fans can see Johnson and his throwback scheme in action on Sunday, Sept. 6 at 6 p.m. ET on NBCSN.
