The final paint scheme of Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s full-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series career will look very similar to his first paint scheme, which debuted in 1999 when he made his debut in the sport’s top series.
Sponsor Axalta will adorn the rear quarter panels of the No. 88 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet and be featured across the hood. But the color scheme, which features a red body, black roof and posts and black stripes down both sides of the car, is clearly modeled after his former No. 8 Budweiser-sponsored entry fielded by his father’s Dale Earnhardt Inc.-owned organization.
The paint scheme will be run in the season-ending Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead Miami Speedway on Sunday, Nov. 19. Earnhardt unveiled the car Wednesday night during a one-hour Dale Earnhardt Jr. Appreci88ion Tour special on QVC. #NASCAR#DaleEarnhardtJr#88#Axalta#Chevrolet#HendrickMotorsports#NationwideInsurance#MountainDew#KellyBlueBook#Valvoline#Budweiser#HomesteadMiami#Motorsports#Racing
Two Dale Jr Nationwide series cars today from 2008.
The Delphi car was run at Daytona in the opening race of the year for the newly named Nationwide Series. Dale led a total of 14 laps and finished 3rd behind Gibbs teammates Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch.
My dearest Caroline, you were one of the best mustaches a boy could've ever dreamed of. The bike rides together on the promenade, our simple picnics feeding each other gelato, weekends in Prague. These are memories that will stay with me forever. And like a white hot star, the flame couldn't last, so with great pain, I had to let you go. Wherever you are, I bet you're making another boy very happy (not like that). I love you my sweetest Caroline. #hotgaydads#periodictableofelements#nationwideinsurance#fattoddlersinyogapants
