Supra’s Famous Castrol Livery Returns on a Mustang in NASCAR Revival

Debuting at Darlington in a thrilling race on May 12.

Over the past few decades, the world of car racing has given rise to several iconic liveries. Gulf, Rothmans, and Martini are among the most well-known, but NASCAR enthusiasts will soon have the pleasure of admiring a timeless Castrol design. Roush Fenway Keselowski Racing has revealed that they will showcase the Castrol TOM’s Toyota Supra livery on their Ford Mustang during the upcoming race at Darlington later this month.

It may seem controversial, but currently Castrol is the sponsor for Brad Keselowski’s Ford. He decided on a retro look in a video shared on X (formerly Twitter), recalling his experience racing the car in Gran Turismo. He opted for the TOM’s Castrol livery instead of the John Force Castrol Special, pointing out that it resembled last year’s car design, as well as Casey Atwood’s Castrol GTX stock car.

In 1995, the Castrol TOM’s Toyota Supra made its debut in the JGTC flaunting the iconic green, red, and white livery that has become instantly recognizable. The vehicle managed to clinch the championship titles in 1997 and 1999, but Castrol terminated its sponsorship agreement with the team in 2001.

Darlington Raceway has been promoting the use of retro paint schemes for teams at the track for many years, and there will be additional cars running classic designs alongside Keselowski throughout the weekend. Kyle Larson’s No. 5 Chevrolet will feature a throwback design in red, yellow, green, and white honoring Terry Labonte, while Stewart-Haas Racing’s No. 4 Ford will showcase a Richard Childress inspired livery from 1998.
