CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Wednesday afternoon, Kasey Kahne and Terry Labonte joined LiftMaster at the NASCAR Hall of Fame to unveil the throwback paint scheme that Kahne will pilot next weekend at Darlington Raceway.
The scheme reflects Labonte's 1982 JD Stacy Buick paint scheme and also corresponds with LiftMaster's founding year.
“This paint scheme brings back a lot of really great memories for me, and I’m honored that LiftMaster put together this program with Kasey and the No. 5 team for Darlington,” Labonte. “To experience the unveiling through virtual reality is something I would have never thought was possible in 1982, so to see just how far technology has come and how LiftMaster integrates it into its products was really neat.”
The scheme was unveiled through an interactive virtual reality experience, allowing guests in attendance to virtually go back to 1982 and see the car as Labonte drove it, while also seeing Kahne's tribute version.
“Darlington’s throwback weekend is one of the coolest programs any track does all year,” Kahne said. “I’m glad that LiftMaster is participating in the program to celebrate their start of the garage door opener business. I appreciate the opportunity to honor Terry Labonte with our throwback paint scheme at one of my favorite tracks.”
