A.J. Foyt’s old Coyote chassis in the 1970s were adorned in “Coyote Orange” – it’s one of the iconic colors for one of North America’s greatest racing drivers, and one of three four-time Indianapolis 500 champions.

Today, that color scheme makes a comeback, thanks to the Alfe Heating Treating livery adorned on the No. 41 A.J. Foyt Racing entry of Martin Plowman. The Englishman makes his Verizon IndyCar Series comeback for the first time since 2011, when he drove three races for a jointly entered AFS/Sam Schmidt Motorsports program; additionally, the coyote orange was on Bruno Junqueira’s No. 41 car when he qualified for that year’s Indianapolis 500.

Plowman will race both at the Grand Prix of Indianapolis May 10 and the Indianapolis 500 on May 25. Here’s two shots of the car all done up and ready to go for today’s GP of Indy testing, via @AlfeRacing:

    Growing up an Foyt fan, I love this livery.
