Bob Gilbertson’s Autolite flopper is one of the freshest in the pits. Thursday afternoon saw co crew chief Tommy Delago and a couple of crew members just down the road from ORP at Indy Custom Shops where Carey Bewley’s team applied the flashy new Jungle Jim themed paint. The team were there to apply the minor sponsor and contingency decals to the car.

This one is not a vinyl wrap as are a number of the graphic packages of recent memory but rather a true custom paint application. For those on hand at the event it is worth taking a close look at the body and some of the subtle images incorporated into the base color which is considerably brighter than what has been Gilby’s staple so far this season. - Keith Burgan
