NASCAR Unites: An American Salute program. For the first time ever, the NASCAR community is coming together for an all-encompassing salute to America. The program will run from the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway through the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway. Many drivers will sport special red, white and blue paint schemes and/or carry special competition elements.
The scheme schedule is shown below:
#47-Bobby Labonte, #48-Jimmie Johnson, #55-Mark Martin, #56-Martin Truex Jr. and #99-Carl Edwards at Charlotte in May;
#2-Brad Keselowski (no image), #29-Kevin Harvick (no image) and #88-Dale Earnhardt Jr. at Charlotte in May and Daytona in July;
#16-Greg Biffle at Michigan in June. #88-Cole Whitt, will run in the Kentucky race in June and #7-Danica Patrick will run in the Nationwide race at the Daytona race in July.

My favorites from the ones pictured above are the Mark Martin and Danica Patrick. The Mark Martin scheme reminds me of the 2010 David Reutimann Armed Forces Foundation scheme, which I loved. Of course I will be buying the Keselowski no matter what it looks like, and I just might get that Danica as well :)

I believe we've seen a sneak peak of Brad K's scheme. All of those are nice, even the program car (ugh, fantasy car) which they should run as a pace car somewhere. The one's I like the least are JJ's and Bobby Labonte's. I really like Martin's and Danica's (I actually have the Reutimann car) and I will absolutely but at least 2 of those (Jr. and Danica) plus the Brad K, and my pick up 1 or 2 more.

I want the Truex car it looks great, the Martin one looks good to. Lowes get a big Fail imo on JJ's, thats the worst looking one to me.

I'll get most of these in 1/64, because The Red White and Blue Paint schemes touch my heart, as I've had family members serve in WW2 (My Grandfather) and Vietnam (My Uncle).

I like all the schemes, but this is FAR from the first time something like this has been done. However, if they are going to run these at every race between May and July, THAT would be unique!

Correct, its happened at least 4 times before that I can recall. 1991, 2000, 2007 and 2010.

I would consider all the 2011 9/11 schemes in the same category. Also there was the 2008 Salute the Troops program but that was mostly just adding the logo in most cases.
