    Looks like they planned to kill the flairs on the JGR #4 font before killing the ride. Kind of cool that the version they brought back in trucks this year has the original style.

    If you go to Dale Jr's Instagram you can see a whole bunch of Sam Bass's other proposals for this year's Axalta scheme, and on his Twitter he posted a video with a ton of Tucknut's various Nationwide proposals. Pretty cool stuff.

    How on earth half of those Nationwide schemes were passed over for what they chose is beyond me.

    Kerry Earnhardt was originally supposed to drive the #8 for FitzBradshaw in 2002, but the number was switched to 12 before the season began.

    Did DEI have anything to do with why it was changed?

    I'm not sure, but I do know that Dale Jr drove the 8 part time in Busch from that year until 2007

    I met Scott Saunders (driver of this truck) at a party a few years back. He was a pretty cool dude. Unfortunately, after a couple years I lost contact with him. I know him and this team tried multiple attempts at a truck team and xfinity team. They never could make it work though.

    Grant Enfinger attempted to qualify for the 2011 Ford 400, but failed. This car never hit the track

    I think he ran it in qualifying though. Isn't this thread for schemes that never even made it to the track?

    Because I feel like there's a million examples that showed up and missed a race and never ran the same paint scheme again. On the other hand it's much more rare to find a scheme announced but not ever make it to the track or get changed before it does.

    This one never hit the track though, if you wanna get technical, this was the first "scheme" I did for a real team haha. Even though it's only a couple stripes, and they didn't use the colors they originally asked for.

    DEI did do fabrication for the team, but it was owned by Armando Fitz and Terry Bradshaw. The reason why there was a number change was to reflect Bradshaw's number 12 when played football on track. 8 was one of the cars that was owned by Armando Fitz in the season before.

    Greg Sacks was supposed to drive this car in some 2002 races, starting at Indianapolis. The debut date was then pushed to Charlotte, and then, nothing was ever heard from the team since.

    With a sponsor like that, I am not shocked.
