On Wednesday, Stewart-Haas Racing officially unveiled the Busch Light paint scheme that 2014 NASCAR Cup Series champion Kevin Harvick will pilot during the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season.
The official unveil came in the form of a magazine render video in a tweet:

While the scheme looks somewhat the same as 2021’s Busch Light scheme, the number has been shifted in line with the new number placement for the 2022 Next Gen cars.
With that, comes more space in a gray bar area on the bottom half of the car for a bold Mobil 1 logo. The number placement seems to have not only added more space for the primary sponsor (Busch), but extra space for the associate sponsor as well.
The Busch Light scheme had been leaked on Reddit/NASCAR on January 3rd as redditor thepirateman493_YT uploaded a photo of a promotional schedule poster.
While it was speculated this would be the official scheme, SHR made it 100% official on Wednesday.
