We've been having a blast perusing the revived Jayski.com paint schemes archive, a treasure trove of decades' worth of NASCAR paint schemes both popular and forgotten. But how well can you recall some of these obscure rides we found in the depths of the gallery?

Here's how it's going to work. We'll give you a person or thing for which you'll need to search, then a hint if you're stuck, and finally a picture of the paint scheme in question. Everything we dredged up was first found in the Jayski archives, so we're not pulling any fast ones on you.

Can you find Randy Moss somewhere in the Jayski archives?
4 of 30
The car we're thinking of raced in 2006 and the driver's last name is a color.
5 of 30
We're thinking of the Jeff Green Inta Juice car from 2006.
6 of 30
Can you find a No. 24 car that's missing a number somewhere in the Jayski archives?
7 of 30
Look back to the '90s and consider the fact that Terry Labonte is the reason the car is missing a number.

When Jeff Gordon slept in and missed practice, Terry Labonte hopped in Gordon's ride -- which proceeded to blow a tire and damage the side of the car. This photo was snapped when Gordon drove in the repaired No. 24, which was still missing a few decals.

Can you find a car with black rookie stripes somewhere in the Jayski archives?
10 of 30
Sure, rookies typically carry a yellow stripe on their cars, but this one didn't -- maybe because the car was yellow. The driver of this machine now owns a NASCAR race team.
11 of 30
It's Carl Long's 2005 car from Chicagoland.
12 of 30
In the Jayski archives, can you find a car that has a number placed on the hood of the car -- somewhere you typically don't see a number?
13 of 30
A former Cup Series champ raced such a car at the Brickyard in 2005.
14 of 30
It's this Bobby Labonte ride from the '05 Brickyard 400, celebrating 18 years of Interstate Batteries sponsorship on the Joe Gibbs Racing No. 18. Today, in 2019, the Interstate colors still appear on the JGR cars.
15 of 30
Can you find the Harlem Globetrotters in the Jayski archives?
16 of 30
The driver at the time was a rookie, and at a track that's a 607-mile trip from Harlem, New York.
17 of 30
If you guessed Scott Riggs' car at Bristol in 2004, you're correct.
18 of 30
Can you peruse the Jayski archives to find a car bearing Dunder-Mifflin's city?
19 of 30
The car we're thinking of was sponsored by a Toyota dealer and it raced in the first post-Office racing season.
20 of 30
It's Cole Whitt's 2014 Toyota of Scranton car.
21 of 30
If you dig through the Jayski archives, can you find a pink car with green wheels?
22 of 30
The photo of the car we've found is placed next to the car of that driver's brother. The car also bears the number of the highest-allowed digit in NASCAR.
23 of 30
Give up? It's this Jeff Burton ride from the 1998 Coca-Cola 600, alongside brother Ward Burton in the No. 22 car.
24 of 30
Have you seen a McRib car in the Jayski archives?
25 of 30
What if we told you it's not your typical McDonald's-sponsored ride, and it's on an old-school Ford Thunderbird?
26 of 30
We're thinking of this No. 89 Thunderbird, raced in 1998 by Dennis Setzer at Talladega. Like the McRib, you don't see this one around every day.
27 of 30
Last one! Can you recall a Nickelback-themed paint scheme if you look through the Jayski archives?
28 of 30
What if we told you we already featured this team in this very scavenger hunt, and the car raced at Richmond Raceway?
29 of 30
Look at this photograph! It's a Scott Riggs' car from Richmond in 2005.
