MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Brad Keselowski will pay tribute to another iconic Rusty Wallace paint scheme during the Bojangles’ Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway on Sept. 1.

Keselowski’s No. 2 Ford Mustang will carry the same colors Wallace sported during the 1996 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season. The scheme was revealed Monday afternoon via Team Penske’s Twitter account.

Wallace earned five of his 55 career victories during the 1996 season, resulting in a seventh-place finish in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series standings.

Last year Keselowski’s car carried a throwback scheme honoring Wallace’s 1990 colors that he sported when he drove for Raymond Beadle. The scheme turned out to be good luck as Keselowski drove it to victory in the Southern 500.
