It looks like we very well could be getting our first glimpse at Jimmie Johnson’s 2019 Darlington Throwback paint scheme. Noah Gragson was playing around with a bunch of prototype diecasts on Twitter on Monday, and while posting a picture of one of his No. 9 Switch Camaro SS diecasts, a suspicious diecast was seen on the shelf behind Gragson’s hand.
The No. 48 Ally car shown looks just like Johnson’s old SCORE Off-Road Truck scheme from his early driving days. Moments after the photo was posted to Twitter, Gragson deleted it. However, it looks like this very well may be Jimmie Johnson’s 2019 Darlington Throwback scheme. (h/t to Robert Schloemer for bringing this to my attention)
