    Lionel casually forgetting the PPG logo on the right side; looks dope on the Mustang though

    O.K. So something was telling me that this scheme doesn't look exactly like it did last year. I don't know about the actual scheme, but judging from the render, they have stretched the rainbow gradient and the roof's blue gradient out more, as well as taken the paint streaks further back. Looks like they also added a bit more green on the bottom of the rainbow gradient as well.

    Still looks great though! Maybe even better than last year's...

    I like it, glad to see Penske keeping the scheme. The colors look more pronounced than the 2018 version, although the PPG logo on the side gets blended a bit with the blue in the scheme base...

    Honestly that is probably just Lionel being Lionel cause what Lionel shows us rarely looks exactly what the actual scheme looks like

    The teams send the artwork to Lionel, it's not Lionel's doing.

    Looks like they are going back to colored front ends for Menards, this was spotted in the back of the Penske shop

    I like that. It gives the different brands on the hood a bit more of an identity than just being on the same old blinding yellow car each and every time.

    It adds needed contrast. The partner sponsors never really stood out that much last season, like this they are a lot more visible.

    It’s also always that battle of some colors working perfectly with the Menards yellow and others looking awful, especially back in the RCR days, I remember how awful that white and Menards yellow Valvoline car looked

    Funny, because I think that's an example of how GOOD they can look. I really liked that car.

    The schemes Menard ran from 2016-17 were all godawful (except for two of them, '16 Moen and '17 Peak). If they want to make a good looking Menards combo scheme they should do something similar to the 2014-15 schemes that had a perfect balance of whatever sponsor was on the car and Menards yellow.

    Man lol, I don’t think I’ve ever hated a Menards scheme as much as that one, probably doesn’t help that the RCR base design were awful messes

    I dig it too, but that Jack Links dark red is rough with the day-glo yellow. :)

    guess I’ll post this in here too, since it shows Blaneys new 12, kinda similar colors to his Darlington Throwback but black instead of blue

    That's way better than the stupid white numbers last year.
