NASCAR America: Kyle Larson throwback scheme honors Kyle Petty, Felix Sabates (video)

Kyle Larson's throwback scheme for Darlington is revealed as it pays homage to Kyle Petty and Felix Sabates who made the scheme famous.

Kyle Larson’s throwback scheme for the Bojangles’ Southern 500 looks very familiar to NASCAR on NBC and NASCAR America analyst Kyle Petty.

It should. Petty drove a similar paint scheme for Felix Sabates during his own racing career, including 1995 when he earned the eighth and final win of his Cup career (at Dover).
