The Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes logo was on the hood of the No. 51 car, while the quarter-panel featured the logo of Sherwin-Williams product AWX Performance Plus™ Waterborne Refinish System. AWX Performance Plus™ Waterborne basecoat is an easy-to-apply, fast drying basecoat that provides excellent color match while meeting the strict 3.5 VOC limits in much of North America.



"We were pleased to be on the No. 51 car at Darlington Raceway,” said Bobby Moody, Director of Motorsports for Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes. "We value our partnership with HScott Motorsports, and enjoyed watching a Sherwin-Williams car race under the lights at Darlington."

 

Justin Allgaier, who is in the running for the Sunoco Rookie of the Year award in the NSCS this season, made his first career NSCS start at Darlington, finishing 23rd in the field. He also has participated in five Nationwide Series events at Darlington, with two top fives, three top 10s and has led 31 laps at the 1.366-mile track.


"I was thrilled to have Sherwin-Williams on the car at Darlington,” said Allgaier. "They are a big supporter of HScott Motorsports and NASCAR, and I enjoyed driving the No. 51 with the Sherwin-Williams colors on it at one of my favorite tracks.”
