NASCAR’s next generation racecars will have new paint schemes added to the changes that will debut next season on a car they have named the ‘Gen 6’ car.

NASCAR made the announcement Saturday morning at Homestead-Miami Speedway site of Sunday’s Sprint Cup series season ending race.

Among the new features that will be part of the paint scheme: The drivers name will appear on the front windshield. A single sponsor logo will be allowed on the roof, decals will be allowed to extend past the ‘b’ post; step and repeat patterns will be allowed on the side of the car; team logo allowed on the front bumper; decals will no longer be allowed on the headlights and taillights. Finally the car number will now appear on the front and rear bumper. MORE>>>
