Roush Fenway Racing has unveiled the paint scheme Trevor Bayne will carry on his racecar for the Bojangles' Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway.

Bayne's No. 6 AdvoCare Ford will feature Mark Martin's iconic red, white and blue paint scheme he raced during the 1996 and 1997 NASCAR Premier Series seasons.

"It's an honor any time you are mentioned alongside Mark Martin," Bayne said in a team press release. "He obviously contributed a lot to Roush Fenway and this organization, so to carry a paint scheme that he ran for the second year in a row is really cool. Our team has been working really hard and running well this season, so I'm hopeful that we can make Mark proud."

Martin, who earned two wins, 17 top-five and 26 top-10 finishes at Darlington, is looking forward to seeing his classic scheme on the race track once again.

"It's going to be really cool to see that car on the track again at Darlington," Martin said. "It's always been one of my favorite paint schemes and we had a lot of good times taking that car to victory lane and leading a lot of laps during that time. I look at it as a tribute to all the guys that put the hard work in on those cars and gave us the opportunity to go out and compete each week."
