Earnhardt’s New #88 Car has Corvette History

We don’t cover NASCAR here at CorvetteBlog, but this story was worth a little attention.  Dale Earnhardt Jr. revealed his new sponsors and number this week.  The new Hendrick Motorsports car will race as #88, sponsored by Mountain Dew and Amp Energy Drink.

Earnhardt had a say in the design of the paint scheme for the new Chevrolet Impala SS.  In fact, he said, "It’s basic and clean-looking, and we painted the back deck flat black in honor of the Corvette that I drove with my dad" in an endurance race, Junior said.

We’ve covered Dale Jr’s love of Corvettes before.  He’s always been a proud Chevy supporter.  Now when can we see him on the LeMans circuit?!
