Chip Ganassi Racing’s Kyle Larson will pilot Ricky Craven’s 1995-96 Kodiak paint scheme this weekend in the Southern 500 (6 p.m. ET Sunday on NBCSN).

Craven drove the No. 41 Kodiak Chevrolet for owner Larry Hedrick in those two seasons, with Craven winning Winston Cup Rookie of the Year in 1995.

Larson’s scheme is one of the last major throwback schemes to be revealed for Sunday’s race.
