DARLINGTON, S.C.-- On Saturday, Jimmie Johnson and long time partner Lowe's took to Twitter to unveil an upcoming paint scheme that will race at Darlington Raceway this coming Labor Day weekend.
The No. 48 Lowe's Chevrolet SS will join others in giving NASCAR fans a flashback to prior decades of racing at the track. During the throwback weekend, Johnson's Chevrolet will feature the 1940s and 1950s Lowe's Home Improvement logo that was prominently used beginning with the company’s founding in 1946 and through the same time period in which Darlington Raceway first opened in 1950.
Johnson, driver of the No. 48 Chevrolet SS, shared his thoughts on the retro paint scheme shortly after the unveil.
Together, Johnson and Lowe's have collected three Darlington Raceway wins and 12 top-10 finishes in just 16 starts at the historic track. The No. 48 team’s most recent victory was in 2012 after rolling of the grid in second.
This September, the team will seek their fourth win during the throwback weekend at the Darlington track.
