Paint scheme preview: Subway Fresh Fit 500
February 26, 2013, Staff report, NASCAR.com
Special paint schemes for the Subway Fresh Fit 500 unveiled
Editor's note: This story will be updated as additional paint schemes are revealed.
After an eventful Speedweeks -- which included the fan-controlled Sprint Unlimited, heated Daytona Duels (won by Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch), a Camping World Truck Series opener that saw a veteran regular (Johnny Sauter) take the checkered flag, a subdued victory for Tony Stewart in the NASCAR Nationwide Series race and Jimmie Johnson winning his second Daytona 500 -- teams now head west for the two-week West Coast swing.
The first race is at Phoenix International Raceway, which has been recently reconfigured and repaved, changing how the drivers race the course.
Traditionally teams will swap their cars in hotel parking lots, as the haulers head to Las Vegas Motor Speedway for the race just a few days later.
Below are some of the special paint schemes you'll see at the Subway Fresh Fit 500.
