    If the rules were followed in the first place, a redesign wouldn't be necessary.

    That's what I don't understand. How does a team like Hendrick Motorsports design this car, get it signed off by everyone, send it to Lionel for production, wrap the racecars....all without following one of the only paint scheme rules? Or getting it approved by NASCAR?

    Mind boggling.

    It's kinda sad and also kinda fucking hilarious how nascar had to tell them no just because they saw the reveal, meaning they didn't even show it to nascar for approval. That's just stupid.

    Yeah, It's all Hendrick designers fault to do this without following the NASCAR rules.

    Yes I agree its on HMS to know the rules for the car designs but at the same time I'm sure DC had a lot more to do with the designs than the guys at Hendrick did. A major motion picture like this would have a lot of say over what the cars look like. But the people over at Hendrick need to know what's acceptable and what's not to say to DC "no that won't get approved".

    The one thing I noticed in the article by Nick Bloomberg it appeared Kasey Kahne's car was suppose to have Superman on one side and The Flash on the other but the reveals all day showed The Flash on both sides so that one might have changed already.

    Go look at the 5 thread. Superman is on the driver side.

    The car has been updated. At least a little... the made the front of the other side black like this side here got turned black:

    as you can see here from this angle:

    Just like the #18 M&M cars it had to be enough to pass, I am sure NASCAR approved it or it wouldn't be loaded up headed there right now.

    Did they get rid of the pattern in the number? The #5 also has a normal number on the updated version. They wouldn't let them run these, but they let them run those Mountain Dew numbers earlier this year that no one could see?

    That scheme, unlike the AC Delco scheme, translates perfectly to the Gen 6. This is just so right

    I'm going to be in tears right when the checkered flag waves.
