Default dale jr's talledega paint scheme. almost #3

apr. 29th wouldve been dale sr's 55th b-day. in honor of this jr. will drive a black car with bud, but will be done in the oldschool gm goodwrench style. this weekends race will bring back alot of good (and bad) memories.

good memories like dale sr passing about 17 cars in the final shootout laps to win his final victory in 2000.

bad memories like rusty finishing at talledega 6th, crossing the finishline airborne, upside down, and backwards thanks to a last second "bump" from the intimidator in 93 (e. irvan won in kodak #4). i have forgiven sr though, after all it was rustys car that took the air offa sr's spoiler right before his final wreck.

ironically, rustys 2nd to last victory was on what wouldve been dales 50th birthday in california a few months after he died.

i almost have to give jr the automatic emotionnal edge and advantage.
