Martin Truex Jr. revealed a Darlington throwback paint scheme Wednesday that harkens back to Hank Parker Jr. and Bass Pro Shops’ first full primary sponsorship. Parker ran the scheme for Chance2 Motorsports at the NASCAR Xfinity Series race in 2003 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Truex, driving for Joe Gibbs Racing in the No. 19 Toyota, will sport the look for the NASCAR Cup Series playoff opener Sept. 6 at Darlington Raceway in the Cook Out Southern 500 (6 p.m. ET on NBCSN/NBC Sports App, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).
We’ll be running the 2003 @BassProShops colors that Hank Parker Jr raced in at Atlanta that year. This car was one of Johnny Morris’ first primary sponsorships in @NASCAR, so we’re excited to bring it back at @TooToughToTame! #NASCARThrowback pic.twitter.com/HF1x39ChlC
