10 NASCAR Paint Schemes of The 2010s We Will Never Forget

So much can change in a decade, but the best things you remember forever.

10 NASCAR Paint Schemes of The 2010s We Will Never Forget

The 2010s was filled with so many great memories in the world. NASCAR had so many great moments during the 2010s. Jimmie Johnson won 3 m of his 7 championships, and the sport saw so many greats retire. The sport also welcomed in some young talent that has been unbelievable. The one thing we remember most about NASCAR races are the paint schemes (and the winners).

We remember the bright paint schemes, the companies that we see in our day-to-day life, and we remember the paint schemes that touch our hearts. The paint schemes that are dedicated to worthy causes and the paint schemes that honored the ones we lost.

Here are the 10 best NASCAR paint schemes of the 2010s:

1. Jimmie Johnson's Superman Scheme (2016)


Jimmie Johnson's Superman paint scheme at Autoclub in 2016 was one of the coolest paint schemes EVER (Jeff Gordon's rainbow scheme is close)! Imagine and relive the moment with me of this car going around the track at 190+ mph. Then, Jimmie Johnson wins the race! What's cooler than that?!

2. Chase Elliott's Breast Cancer Awareness Scheme (2019)


The last few years Chase Elliott has run this Hooters scheme in October. Nothing makes a better pair than Hooters and Breast Cancer Awareness. This vibrant bright scheme is one that you cannot forget.

3. Ryan Blaney's Dickies Scheme (2019)


This Ryan Blaney paint scheme is really cool looking. It gives off the illusion that the paint scheme is a pair of pants. Going at 100+ mph it looks pretty awesome.

4. William Byron's Axalta Throwback Scheme (2018)


In 2018, William Byron paid homage to the legendary Jeff Gordon with this Axalta paint scheme at Darlington. That is right the rainbow scheme lived through 2 decades. This paint scheme was more anticipated than the actual race.

5. Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s Man of Steel Scheme (2013)


If you loved and remembered Jimmie Johnson's Superman scheme, then you had to remember Dale Jr.'s National Guard Man of Steel scheme. This scheme is by far one of the coolest paint schemes that Dale Jr. has ever driven (or anyone for that matter). This scheme takes us back to circa 2013.

6. Bubba Wallace's Air Force Scheme (2019)


This Bubba Wallace paint scheme is badass. Bubba Wallace's Air Force scheme is hands down the best scheme of 2019. It is hard to forget this paint scheme. It looks cool in s still photo, and it looked cooler racing around the track.

7. Matt Kenseth's Dollar General Scheme (2015)

NBC Sports

Remember Matt Kenseth (maybe, maybe not)? Well, his Dollar General scheme is legendary. Everyone remembers this bright yellow car. At the time, when you saw this car racing around the track you instantly thought about Matt Kenseth. The car is currently being piloted by Erik Jones, but it is Matt Kenseth who made the car and the scheme legendary.

8. Kasey Kahne's Pepsi Scheme (2014)


Remember when Pepsi was a sponsor in NASCAR? I know so much changes in a decade. But one thing I remember is this paint scheme that Kasey Kahne drove in 2014.

9. Tony Stewart's Mobil 1 (2016)


Tony Stewart put this paint scheme and Mobil 1 on the map. He made this paint scheme famous. When you see the scheme you instantly think about Tony Stewart.

10. Jeff Gordon's Axalta Scheme (2015)

Fox Sports

Jeff Gordon's Axalta paint scheme in 2015. This was one of the last paint schemes that he ran in 2015. It was also one of the coolest paint schemes of Jeff Gordon's career. Nothing can replace the rainbow scheme, but this has to go in my top 10 favorite schemes of all-time.

So much can change in a decade, but the best things you remember forever. These paint schemes will transcend the decade. They are paint schemes that will go down in history as some of the best in the sport.

The 2010s decade has seen a lot of change in NASCAR. From the biggest moments in the sport to the change in sponsors, but the one thing that reminds is the paint schemes always stand out.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."
