Check out this Dale Earnhardt 1981 throwback scheme for Darlington

UNKNOWN — 1981: Dale Earnhardt in action during the second half of the NASCAR Cup season after he had switched to driving for Richard Childress Racing.

Go Fas Racing has unveiled the throwback paint scheme Jeffrey Earnhardt's No. 32 Ford will carry in the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway in September.

Jeffrey will pay tribute to his grandfather Dale Earnhardt with a design that brings together the No. 2 and No. 3 driven by the seven-time NASCAR premier series champion in 1981 -- earning 17 top-10 finishes and nine top fives, including a sixth-place finish in the Southern 500.

"I'm pretty excited to have the famous yellow and blue paint scheme in honor of my grandfather for this year's Southern 500," said Jeffrey. "My grandfather ran this paint scheme in 1981, when he started the season as the No. 2 car driving for Rod Osterlund.

"When Richard Childress purchased the team halfway through the season it became the famous No. 3 car, so you have that No. 32 connection, so it's pretty cool to have the chance to bring it back this year. I know we'll have a lot of fun with it, and hope the all the great fans enjoy it as well."
