Same Ride, New Color


The silver No. 84 that’s been shining in Red Bull Racing Team’s shop unloads for the first time Friday at Talladega, and AJ Allmendinger, who returns after a five-race layoff, can’t wait to show off his car’s new look.

“I think it’s sweet,” Allmendinger said. “Our blue has been good, but it’s one of those things that says, ‘I’m back!’ It’s silver. It’s going to stand out. It’s going to look fast, and it’s going to be fast.”

In 2007, Red Bull’s motorsports branding featured dynamic bulls, suns and custom deep blue color. More than a year later, the design is expanding with the silver No. 84. The car maintains the same styling cues as the No. 83 to ensure close affiliation but carries a metallic silver pearl base and blue number to create its own identity and personality.

“Some would call it a mirrored aluminum silver. Some would call it a titanium finish,” said Marty Briggs, the paint shop manager. “We would just have to call it bad ass.”

That is so sweet looking. The only thing now is if BV were to go to the white letters and splitter rather then the yellow. I always thought that AJ's car looked better. I hope we can get the new car as a diecast sometime soon....

Is silver going to be the color all the time or just for a race or two?

Just wanted to let everyone know that BV will be in the May NASCAR Illustrated. They did an article about him, and his experiences off the track.

just a reminder: BV will be on Trackside this week at Talladega. and I think TrackPass on NASCAR.com is free this week, there's a small add in the middle of the home page.. I hope it is, because I can't sign up for a membership, I live in the Caribbeans.

On race2win.com it says the 84 will be running the silver scheme the rest of the year.

Just so everyone knows...race2win.com is an advertising site not a real race site. Another spammer!

Actually, I think 83fanatic ment to say race2win.net. That is a race site.
