For your enjoyment we present to you a FAIL blog of special NASCAR paint schemes. These awful schemes, which were inflicted upon an unsuspecting public, never should have made it out of the artist’s sketch pad. Heck, they never should have made it out of the artist’s mind. Much like Scott Speed’s wardrobe, we believe these paint schemes are staggering acts of cruelty cloaked as style.

No driver ever should be required to drive a violently pink car, not even as punishment. It’s just plain wrong on so many levels, like the time Sterling Marlin had to drive the car with the Underalls logo on the deck lid back in the 1980s.

We added this one because SpongeBob is the only cartoon character that annoys us more than Digger, whom this site recently took pleasure in killing repeatedly.

Batman and the makers of Viagra – what a combo. Yet it is disturbingly appropriate, seeing as how Batman turns 70 this year. Ka-Pow!

What marketing wiz decided it was a good idea to put the cowardly lion on a race car? Was Wimpy from Popeye unavailable?

Just like race cars should not be pink, they also should not be lavender or powder blue. This car is both. DOUBLE FAIL.

We don’t know about you, but we think it’s a bad idea to promote the term “bench warmer” at any sporting event, even if it is to promote a movie. MARKETING FAIL.

Race cars should never feature the name of the person responsible for bringing us “Achy Breaky Heart” and Hannah Montana. EPIC FAIL..

Why yes, our minds are in the gutter. Thanks so much for asking!

Ahem. Our minds are in the gutter because that’s where they belong. We like it there.
