Does Teresa Know? Jeffrey Earnhardt To Run Intimidator Scheme At Darlington

Go Fas Racing unveiled the throwback paint scheme that the No. 32 CorvetteParts.Net Ford Fusion will carry this September in the Bojangles Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway. The No.32 Ford will pay tribute to Jeffrey Earnhardt's grandfather, Dale Earnhardt, Sr., with a design that combines the No. 3 and No. 2 driven by Earnhardt on his way to 17 Top-10 and nine Top-5 finishes in 1981, including a sixth-place finish in the Southern 500. 

"I'm pretty excited to have the famous yellow and blue paint scheme in honor of my grandfather for this year's Southern 500," said Jeffrey Earnhardt. "My grandfather ran this paint scheme in 1981, when he started the season as the No.2 car driving for Rod Osterlund. When Richard Childress purchased the team halfway through the season, it became the famous No.3 car, so you have that 32 connection. It's pretty cool to have the chance to bring it back this year. I know we'll have a lot of fun with it, and hope the fans enjoy it as well." 

In a NSCS career that spanned 27 years, Earnhardt Sr. collected seven championships and 76 victories, along with 281 Top-5 finishes and 25,684 laps led. He also won four IROC championships and scored 21 victories in the NASCAR XFINITY Series.

    I had always felt that the NASCAR community was too hard on Teresa, until I found out what she was suing over the name usage. I wonder if there's a 1 finger salute sticker hidden somewhere on the car ? :D

    1. Doesn't mean the community was right then. I can't say anything for the garage but fans had issue with her simply because she wasn't rolling over for Junior -- right or wrong of the matter didn't matter.

    I don't think there's a reason for concern. Apparently the real source of confusion and an inability to separate the name from the reputation is in the area of home furnishings.
