Petty Blue

Richard PettyWell this is good news.

One of the most recognizable images from my youth is the #43 race car of Richard Petty. It's color, which was concocted accidentally, is referred to as 'Petty Blue'. Of late, NASCAR cars have rather complicated paint schemes, unlike the more simplified paint jobs of days gone by.

But that will change, for one car anyway. The number 43 car of Richard Petty Motorsports, driven by Aric Almirola will be painted Petty Blue. Of course the sponsor's logo will be prominent, but there won't be a bunch of other colors.

Looks good to me.
