    Holy shit that's awesome. Huge upgrade from this year's. Also, surprisingly no black roof.

    I like it, but as usual, the white roof kills it.

    Call me crazy, but I prefer this year's scheme over this.

    To be fair though, it's still a solid scheme.

    It’s just because the Earnhardt family doesn’t want things like, say... the scoring tickers on TV to be black with a white #3.

    I personally think it's ugly.

    As Noah said, and this is really brought up each time this happens... but its because Dale’s mom told Richard they can run the 3 as long as its not advertised as a white on red number against a black background.

    But they could use a red roof to match the scheme better.... I feel it has more to do with the spotter

    TV tickers use door numbers usually, not roof numbers (which are sometimes wacky colors), so I doubt it has anything to do with why the roof is colored that way. I think. I guess haha

    It’s literally just to honor Martha Coleman’s words. Richard asks Fox and NBC not to advertise the 3, as well as fanatics.

    I don't understand why they are so scared about things like that. His death was nearly 17 years ago. There's a time where we have to get over death and move on. At this point it's gotten really fucking annoying that just because a legend died in a certain looking car with a certain number, for some reason we have to avoid the car ever looking like his did.

    To show respect, both to the man and his family’s wishes?

    Yes, it's sad he died and all, but you have to move on and some point. We can't just dwell on his death the rest of our lives. They threw back to his Wrangler car and that was okay, but not his Goodwrench car. Never in a million years, apparently.

    I think a part of it is that black is associated with death

    You obviously have missed what the word respect means. It's not about you. When you have respect, it's not about you or your wishes. It's about you letting go and being empathetic. I never particularly liked Jr's black tv panels, but I understood why he did them, for his father. Sometimes you just got to let it go and not get so worked up over something.

    By just not having a black car with a white #3 is not dwelling on his death at all. It’s just showing respect to one of the greatest drivers this sport has ever seen. The Wrangler car? Well, Sr wasn’t known as “The Man in Blue and Yellow” was he?
