Back in the day when Tony Stewart drove a similar Menards flavor of IndyCar there was a little orange and red mixed to the livery. Absent the offsetting colors, Ed Carpenter's ride must glow in the dark when they turn off the lights in the garage.

UPDATE: I guess the color makes the car faster, because in a wacky day of qualifying Ed hammered his way up to P2!

    Jeff,

    Not nearly enough day-glo red and orange. But it's better than the electric slime green Greg Ray's car was painted in 2000. And a Menard's car with no Buic, I mean Menard V6? Heresy!

    Hey, it's bright, will attract attention, and ISN'T some combination of red, white, and blue. Here's to variety!

    Looks nice. I agree though, some black trim would be perfect, with maybe of touch of orange.

    I think it's safe to say that Vision Racing has finally arrived as a Tier 1 team...

    Life is good! I can't wait for Indy

    add some blue to the car !!

    The blue and yellow cars from a few years ago were good.

    Now THAT is an interesting qualifying. Too bad it wasn't on TV. But wait, I can watch Nationwide qualifying on Speed TV! Awesome!

    Argh.
