I feel like I saw this car race more than any other car at Road Atlanta. All the Speedvision series coverage was awesome. When I was in high school, I worked down the road at Lake Lanier Islands where Speedvision had a party after one of these races. My boss knew I was in to cars and pulled me off moving tables around to setup for a wedding and let me bar tend on their party boat at 17. I gave Dave Despain and  the crew red wine, made a few tips, and got to hang out with the crew on the party boat on a Friday night. I may have only made like $30 bucks but one of the most fun days I had at work maybe ever. So anyway that RED LINE OILS/ REALTIME livery is some of my favorite of all time because of all the nostalgia.

To me, that was the golden era of the series.  Awesome racing to watch.  Nice to see it getting some vintage love.
