Stewart-Haas Racing shows off Kurt Busch’s Darlington paint scheme
Stewart-Haas Racing will pay tribute to the history of owner Gene Haas’ company Haas Automation in the Southern 500.
Kurt Busch’s No. 41 car will have a paint scheme based on the VF-1, the first CNC machine built by Haas Automation in 1988.
In the 2015 Darlington race, Busch’s car sported the first paint scheme used by Haas when he entered NASCAR as an owner in 2002.
The “V” is for vertical - standard designation for a vertical mill. Gene Haas added “F1” to designate it as the company’s “Very First One”.— Stewart-Haas Racing (@StewartHaasRcng) April 13, 2016
Busch’s paint scheme joins those already announced for Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Dale Earnhardt Jr.
The Southern 500 is scheduled for Sept. 4 on NBC.
