Possibly one of the most beautiful paint schemes of all-time will be back for one race in 2019. Brad Keselowski will run Rusty Wallace’s iconic 1996 Miller Genuine Draft /Lite splash car, Team Penske announced via Twitter on Monday.
It’s black base scheme with red and blue splashes running down the sides of the car.

During the 1996 campaign, Wallace won an impressive five races with the scheme. Wallace also scored eight top-five finishes, 18 top-10s and he finished seventh in the year-end point standings.
1996 marked the final year of Miller Genuine Draft as the primary sponsor on the No. 2 car, as in 1997 Miller opted to brand the car in their Miller Lite colors. Thus the blue deuce was born.
