Rick Hendrick seemed to be borrowing from the rock group AC/DC when designing Jimmie Johnson’s new Camaro for 2018. The car is definitely back in black.
Hendrick Motorsports unveiled the team and paint schemes this past week at the Charlotte Convention Center. All 4 drivers got a new look, but it was Jimmie Johnson’s car that really popped. All black with day-glo yellow trim.
“I’m very excited about my Lowe’s For Pros car,” Johnson told Autoweek.com. “I’m excited for our whole look, my teammates and these Camaros.”
Johnson has a chance to win the most Cup titles by any driver, moving ahead of legends like Richard Petty and the original man in black, Dale Earnhardt, Sr.
Alex Bowman, taking over for Dale Earnhardt, Jr., will be in the #88 car that is blue with white trim. William Byron is returning the #24 car to the days of Gordon glory when it was known as the rainbow warrior. And Chase Elliott will drive the #9 car just like his father, NASCAR legend Bill Elliott, did. The car will be white with blue accents.
