NASCAR teams regularly change paint schemes out so seeing a different color on your favorite drivers car isn't as odd a thing as it was a decade ago.
Every now and then a PR department will come up with just the right combination and the results are very memorable. This years winner has to be the number 24, Hendrick Motorsports team of William Byron. They have successfully recreated the Chevy Lumina color combo from the movie Days of Thunder. They even released a video to complement the the whole affair.
