RELATED: Buy Darlington tickets " '16 throwback schemes " SHOP: 'Dinger gear AJ Allmendinger ’s Darlington throwback paint scheme will honor Kansas native Bruce Hill's 1970s-era No. 47 with a Kroger/Kingsford red, white and blue theme, JTG Daugherty Racing announced today. Allmendinger will drive the car in the Bojangles' Southern 500 on Sept. 4 (6 p.m. ET, NBC, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio). Allmendinger and Hill, the 1975 Cup series Rookie of the Year, will meet for the first time on Friday at Kansas Speedway . "It is an honor, quite honestly," Hill said in a release. "Being remembered for something is always an honor, especially as big as the sport has gotten." Hill made starts in NASCAR's premier series in eight seasons with his best coming in his rookie year, 1975. He earned three top fives and 11 top 10s on his way to finishing 16th in driver points. He continued racing in the then-Winston Cup series through 1981. Hill now lives in his hometown of Topeka, Kansas, where he raises show horses on a ranch. "I'm really looking forward to meeting Bruce on Friday," Allmendinger said in the release. "I think what Darlington Raceway does to recognize former NASCAR drivers and the heritage of the sport is unprecedented. It's a great way to celebrate our sport and the people who made it what it is today. It's pretty neat to see all the sponsors and teams really get into it."

Name: Joshua Current City: Huntley, Illinois Member since: 2011 Getting to know Joshua Q. Why did you join the Official NASCAR Fan Council? "I just wanted to have a voice in what NASCAR does for the future of the sport. Since NASCAR is driven by the fan, I knew that being selected for the Council was something I needed to do to help the sport I love." Q. How did you first become interested in NASCAR? "To be honest, I was always interested in cars, but never thought about watching NASCAR. My grandpa always watched it, but I was too young to realize what it was. One Sunday, I was flipping through channels and saw that a race was on. I have been hooked ever since!" Q. What makes NASCAR special for you? "NASCAR is special to me because the fans almost have a personal relationship with the drivers. You cannot get that in any other major sport. We are one big family that loves one thing, racing." Q: Do you have any favorite NASCAR memories or traditions? "My favorite tradition is the Coca-Cola 600 Memorial Day weekend ceremony before the race. It commemorates those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. One of my favorite memories is seeing Dale Jr. win in person for the first time! Of all places, that happened at Talladega Superspeedway in May 2014. Not only was the crowd ecstatic, so was I!" Q: Do you have a favorite in any of the following categories? Driver: " Dale Earnhardt Jr ." Track: " Talladega Superspeedway " Memorabilia: " I always collect at least 3-4 of the best looking Dale Jr. diecasts every year. All of them are located right next to my television where I watch the race every weekend. Also, when I went to Daytona, the statue of Dale Earnhardt Sr. was one of the most iconic things I have ever seen in my life. You know you are in company with a historic man and place when passing him." Q: If you could go to any NASCAR race/track, where would you go? "Bristol Night Race" Q: What do you like to do in your free time? " I like to play video games and see whatever is going in the world of NASCAR." Q: Tell us about your family. Do you have children and/or pets? " My family consists of my mom, dad, sister, and my cat, Zoe. We all go to our local track, Chicagoland Speedway , every year. In the summer, Daytona and Talladega are also annual traditions!" Q: What's your dream car? "Corvette!" FROM ALL OF US AT NASCAR, WE THANK JOSHUA FOR HIS CONTINUED SUPPORT AND LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM HIM IN 2016.
