    Okay, so here they are. The three is very subtle, almost impossible to tell. The 29 versus 62 is a very drastic change.

    Wow that's awesome thank you. Always love exploring number fonts/team identity. I believe Gaughan's #62 was also a flipped #29 prior to 2014. Couple more questions, do all the changes to the #3 also apply to the #31, which I assume used the 2001-era #3 until the Dillon era? And the #30 was just the #3 to the #29/27/62 width?

    @AMLNet49 I think the 31 changed around the time Jeff Burton came on. I know the Dale Sr 3 was on Robby Gordon's 31, but it did get the rounded style at some point.

    I don't know about the 30, I think it was a seperate font from the 29, 31, and 33. The old BPS and Sylvania numbers don't match the AOL numbers. Also, Brandon Jones' number is unchanged from when RCR took over the KHI 33, and Clint Bowyer drove the cup 33.

    They keep taking more and more color off these paint schemes (Dow and AE) to the point where I think we'll reach a point where it'll be all black in the next season or two, lol.

    Why couldn't they just keep the 2012 scheme?

    Actually, why didn't couldn't they just keep Bowyer's 2011 Kansas scheme?

    Doesn't look bad but I wish they kept this year's which actually looked pretty cool. For this one hopefully they at least add a green stroke around the E15 text on the hood like the number has, it would look better if it was uniform.

    I actually prefer the new Dow scheme, I think it looks great! Like the "science" red artwork on the front, etc. Matches the Dow brand better IMO.

    Cheerios is gone! Wow. Surprised. They've been with RCR for a while. Atleast 6 years. That's a while to me.

    Even longer, since 2009 when Bowyer moved to the 33

    Oh wow! I though Clint went to the 33 in '10. My bad I guess!
    Huh! Weird.

    According to Jayski, Cheerios will be a part time sponsor on the #37.
