Chase Briscoe reveals Darlington throwback honoring Tony Stewart

Fresh off his sixth victory of the 2020 NASCAR Xfinity Series season, Stewart-Haas Racing’s Chase Briscoe revealed a Darlington throwback scheme that will honor Tony Stewart. The new look for the No. 98 Ford will be and resemble Stewart’s Mobil 1 livery from his 2011 championship season.

Briscoe is making a championship charge of his own and currently sits in second place in the point standings behind Austin Cindric of Team Penske, despite having one more win than Cindric this season.

“I’ve always been a diehard Tony Stewart fan,” Briscoe said in a team release. “When Tony sets his sights on something, there’s nothing you can do to stop him, and that title run in 2011 was a perfect example. Now here I am running for an Xfinity Series championship, and I’m trying to do exactly what Tony did in 2011.”

Briscoe’s throwback scheme will be on the track “Too Tough to Tame” for the Sport Clips Haircuts VFW 200 at 12:30 p.m. ET on Sept. 5 (NBC, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).
