Video: Dirty Mo Media Sponsoring Ross Chastain’s Dale Earnhardt Throwback Scheme at Darlington

Ross Chastain will be in the NASCAR Cup Series Cook Out Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway and he will be paying tribute to legendary seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Dale Earnhardt.

Chastain will drive a No. 77 Chevrolet Camaro for Spire Motorsports, which will be sponsored by Dirty Mo Media — Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s media company — and it will look like the No. 77 paint scheme that Dale Earnhardt Sr. ran in the 1976 NASCAR Cup Series event at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Chastain unveiled the scheme on an episode of the Dale Jr. Download.

Earnhardt started 16th and finished 19th in his only start in this paint scheme. Three years later, Earnhardt was a NASCAR Cup Series rookie of the year contender. A season later, he was a champion. The rest as they say is history.
