Recruiting Tough Airmen to Design Paint Scheme for Upcoming Air Force Sponsored NASCAR> Air Education and Training Command> Post Display
JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas– In a little trick, the Air Force Recruiting Department asks Airmen to put on their creative hats to embark on the design of the No.43 Richard Petty Motorsports Chevrolet Air Force-themed paint scheme for the 2022 NASCAR season.
Aviators who think they have the talent to design the paint scheme have only a few rules to follow: will be white, so no white drawings, but the roof number will be orange, and the rules for using the symbol of the Air Force must always be observed.
Otherwise, aviators only have the artistry to consider when making their design cross the finish line.
âThis car represents all Airmen, Active, Guard and Reserve, so we want all Airmen to participate who think they have a winning design to showcase our Air Force,â said Master Sgt. Shawn Emmerling, AFRS National Events Liaison Officer for the Air Force Reserve. âWe want Airmen to be a part of this awesome 14-year partnership we have with Richard Petty Motorsports and the iconic No.43 car. With 2022 being the 75e Anniversary of the Air Force, we want to see what our creative aviators come up with.
Airmen who believe their talents will grab the checkered flag should submit their design for the competition by December 5, 2021 to [email protected]
The top three selections will compete to become the final design that will be showcased on the car in three primary paint scheme races during the 2022 racing season: Talladega 1 on April 24, Road America on July 3 and Bristol 2, a night race, September 17th. Past designs have graced the famous Tuskegee aviators and their Red Tail aircraft, the iconic shark teeth of the Flying Tigers, as well as an Air Force special warfare program.
