NASCAR: Chase Elliott Returning to Iconic Paint Scheme, Reveals Look at Car

by Clayton Edwards

NASCAR champ Chase Elliott will revive some old paint schemes in the coming racing season. The 25-year-old driver has been sharing sneak peeks of his future looks with social media followers recently. In his latest announcement, he showed off the official Hooters paint scheme for his number 9 Chevy.

According to the tweet, Chase Elliott mentions he’s bringing back the iconic “Night Owl” paint scheme for two races. Its first appearance will be at the Indiana Motor Speedway Road Course in August. The second will be the next month at Bristol Motor Speedway. The matte finish black and orange scheme was a fan-favorite last year.

It wasn’t just a favorite of NASCAR fans, though. In the tweet, Chase Elliott says that “Night Owl” is one of his all-time favorite paint schemes. He adds that he is excited to take the paint job back out on the track. Hooters will develop another paint scheme for Elliott to run at the Darlington Speedway Throwback Race in May.

Chase Elliott Announces Other Paint Schemes

“Night Owl” wasn’t the only paint scheme that Chase Elliott has posted to Twitter lately. Early last week he posted a photo of his car sporting the classic NAPA Auto Parts paint scheme. Elliot retweeted the look from the NAPA Know How Twitter account. In his post, the champ said, “See you in Daytona,” letting fans know when he would run the blue and white paint job. The original post called it “A look fit for a champ.” This is very fitting. Elliott was sporting the NAPA paint job last year when he took home the championship.

Just a few days later, Chase Elliott posted a photo of the number 9 car done up in Kelley Blue Book’s blue and gold scheme. In the post, he expressed his excitement to continue working with the sponsor.

Last year, Chase Elliott ran a total of eleven different paint schemes. So, it is safe to say that the champ has plenty more looks to show his fans and Twitter followers. Be sure to keep an eye on his socials to find out how the number 9 car will look as it captures checkered flags in the coming race season.
