Brad Keselowski to drive Rusty Wallace’s 1990 scheme in Southern 500
Rusty Wallace is synonymous with driving the No. 2 for Roger Penske during his NASCAR Hall of Fame career.
But there was a time when Wallace was winning Cup races with a different numeral and a different team.
Brad Keselowski will pay tribute to that era of Wallace’s career in this year’s Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway. After sporting Wallace’s famous “Midnight” scheme in the race last season, Keselowski will drive the scheme that preceded it.
The No. 2 Ford will resemble the No. 27 Miller Genuine Draft Pontiac that Wallace drove in 1990 for owner Raymond Beadle.
That year, Wallace won two races including the Coca-Cola 600. He finished the season sixth in the standings.
See the scheme below.
