The Driver Suit Blog-Tracy Duncan and BK Racing…Another Little Team That Could

By David G. Firestone

There was a time when Red Bull Racing was relevant in auto racing. It seems so long ago. Red Bull Racing had just been founded. It was going so well that Red Bull founders Dietrich Mateschitz and Chaleo Yoovidhya founded their own NASCAR team in 2006. It was an investment that went nowhere. The team plugged along until 2011, winning 2 races, one with Brian Vickers at Michigan in 2009, and the other with Kasey Kahne in 2011 at Phoenix. After that, the founders of Red Bull saw the light, and sold the team.

After the 2011 season, the remains of Red Bull Racing were sold to Ron Devine and Wayne Press. The new team, now known as BK Racing, started racing in 2011. The team has gone through a number of drivers, and, as of this writing, is in bankruptcy court.

In 2014, BK Racing fielded 3 cars in the Cup Series. Tracy Duncan was the jackman for the #83. The #83 didn’t have any real success, failing to score even a top 10. During that season, Duncan wore this Oakley/Simpson mismatched two-piece suit. The suit shows decent use.

The jacket shows decent use.The standard red collar has a tear in it, and is otherwise unadorned.The cowl doesn’t have a tag of any kind.The right chest features NASCAR SPRINT CUP SERIES, GOODYEAR, and LIPMAN REFRESHINGLY DEPENDABLE logos embroidered.The left chest features TOYOTA, BURGER KING, and DR. PEPPER logos embroidered.The front torso features a large BK RACING logo embroidered.Inside the front zipper is the Oakley Warranty Label.The hems don’t have comfort straps. The shoulder epaulets have Oakley logos on the bottom, and are otherwise unadorned. The right sleeve has a NASCAR logo, a SUNOCO logo, and a BK RACING logo, and nothing in television position. The left sleeve has a NASCAR logo, a TOYOTA logo, and a BK RACING logo, and nothing in television position. The back of the jacket shows some light use.The back of the neck is unadorned, and there is an Oakley logo below the collar.The back torso features DUNCAN,BKRACING.COM,@BKRACING_2383, and a BK RACING logo embroidered.The pants show decent use, especially on the cuffs.The right leg features some wear on the red and blue stripe, and some wear on the cuff. The left leg doesn’t have as much wear as the right leg does. For some reason, even though this is an Oakley-made pair of pants, there is a team Simpson sticker on the Oakley warranty label in the back.The back of the pants don’t show much wear.The back of the waist has the SFI certification.BK Racing was another one of those teams that has raced in the Cup series for many years, and hasn’t had the success that they hoped they would. They are also one of those teams that goes out, not with a bang, but with a whimper. They are going through bankruptcy court as of this writing, and I’m willing to bet they get sold, or go under.

Next week, the rankings of all the Throwback scheme from 2018!

The Driver Suit Blog-Throwback Thursday-1977 #4 Porsche 936/77

Jürgen Barth,Hurley Haywood,and Jacky Ickx 1977 #4 Porsche 936/77

Martini makes another appearance, this time on this 1977 Porsche 936/77. The Porsche 936/77 is a great looking car, but the air intake is a bit too big. Martini’s look on this car can be summed up in one word:Perfect. The bright white works well, and the blue and red stripes work well too. Giving this car anything less than an A is unfair!

The Driver Suit Blog-My Thoughts On Trivia Time Part 2

By David G. Firestone

Last week I posted trivia questions, this week, here are the answers:

I’m going to change this up a bit. For this week, I’m going to do a true/false trivia post. Without further ado…here we go!

Category 1-SPORTS

False! Pittsburgh does, Houston doesn’t.

False-This debacle took place during the 1988 Wales Conference Finals

False-That honor goes to Manute Bol.

Category 2-CARS

True

Category 3-BARBEQUE

*According to experts “grilling” is the same as “barbecuing”

False-Grilling involves cooking meat over charcoal or a gas grill, where it cooks quickly. “Barecuing” is cooking meat slowly, using a smoker, or a wood fire.

False-While Bud Light is the most consumed American beer in the world, Chinese brand Snow is the most consumed beer in the world.

True

The Driver Suit Blog-Paint Scheme Grades-August 25, 2018

By David G. Firestone

Aric Almirola #10 Smithfield Anytime Ford Fusion-Another instance of two different design and color schemes being used on the same car. Either the yellow to blue motif would work, or the black would work by themselves.  Together, it’s and ugly mess, that will get a C-.

Denny Hamlin #11 FedEx Throwback Toyota Camry-This is a very well executed throwback, and the scheme looks great.  I also like the fact that Denny went with a scheme he raced as a kid, which hasn’t really been done yet.  All in all, this gets an A.

Kyle Busch #18 M&M’s White Chocolate Toyota Camry-The white looks really good here, the overall design is great as well, so this gets an A.

Chris Buescher #37 Bush’s Best Beans Throwback Chevy Camaro-While I don’t always like white as a base color for race cars, but this is well-executed, and I like the door numbers and the lettering here.  this looks great, and I give it an A.

Reed Sorenson #51 Trading View Chevy Camaro-Good color scheme, and I do like the curve design.  However, the side design is over done, and it’s visually distracting.  It’s just a meh scheme, that earns a C-.

Timmy Hill #66 Beef Jerkey Outlet Toyota Camry-New sponsor for 2018, same scheme as Crash Claims, same A- grade.

Corey LaJoie #72 ARK Custom Blockchain Solutions Chevy Camaro-It’s an ugly, over designed mess of a scheme.  I do like the red and black color scheme, but that’s as far as I’ll go.  All things considered, this gets a D-.

Martin Truex Jr. #78 Bass Pro Shops/Ducks Unlimited Toyota Camry-This isn’t good.  The template that Furniture Row uses isn’t good to begin with, and the color scheme just makes this worse. It’s certainly not the worst I’ve seen, so I’ll give it a C-.
