DARLINGTON, S.C. — Austin Dillon‘s team unveiled its Southern 500 paint scheme in the same manner as the famous car that it honors.

The “Quicksilver” No. 3 Chevrolet made its debut in the 1995 All-Star Race, and it marked the first departure from Dale Earnhardt’s famous “Black Intimidator” scheme.

Members of Earnhardt’s team hadn’t seen the car before it was rolled out at Charlotte Motor Speedway, and Richard Childress Racing took the same approach with the No. 3 that Dillon will race this weekend at Darlington Raceway.

“This is kind of the one that kind of started all the wild paint schemes,” Dillon said. “And it was a secret. That’s why we kind of unveiled it the way we did. They didn’t unveil this car until it rolled off the back of the trailer.”

Members from Earnhardt’s 1995 team attended Friday morning’s unveiling, including SiriusXM radio host Chocolate Myers, whom Dillon said nearly figured out the secret inadvertently during a recent interview.

“Chocolate was talking about what are we going to do for Darlington weekend,” Dillon said. “I said, ‘You’ll have to wait until we get to the track.’ He said last time that was done, it was a secret, too. So it was cool to have those guys be here and be part of it.

“It’s very special for everyone at RCR.”
