This Sunday night, NASCAR takes the show to Darlington. According to, qualifying has been canceled due to the tropical storm Hermine, (field set by points) but forecasters say the weather shouldn't be a problem on Sunday night. Because Darlington is one of the oldest tracks and was the first NASCAR "superspeedway" they've decided to celebrate the fact with throwback paint schemes and on-track events. The #78 car driven by Martin Truex Jr is being sponsored for this race by our friends at Auto-Owners Insurance, based here in Lansing, and celebrating their 100th anniversary this year.

And, if that isn't enough throwback for you, Barry Williams (Greg Brady) will sing the National Anthem before the race.

Here's a photo gallery (not a slideshow) of some of the paint schemes.
