    Dale Jr loves NASCAR and pure racing more than NASCAR loves NASCAR and pure racing.

    Iโ€™m honestly a bigger Jr fan as an individual, race fan, and commentator!



  2. DDD on August 24, 2022 at 11:21 pm

    Love it. ๐Ÿ

    SWEET!! Love this throw back especially as it holds so many Happy Treasured Memories that are BLESSINGS ๐Ÿ™ Can’t wait to see you racing at North Wilkesboro and prayerfully Bristol and possibly even more races. You’re awesome as a driver but you’re an even better person because you care about what you do and the people needed to make things work like a well oiled machine (LOL, pun intended) and you consider others ,you’re just a fantastic person and I’m so happy you’re carrying on the Earnhardt family tradition and legacy that will forever be a part of racing ๐Ÿ Thank you for sharing your life with us fans and keeping the old stories alive from days gone by because I love hearing the old stories whether on the track or after a race or sometimes during a race. Those are PRICELESS TREASURED MEMORIES AND BLESSINGS!! Keep up the great work ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’ž HUGS to you, your family and everyone who helps make Dirty Mo the destination for everything racing ๐Ÿ Y’all are the BEST ๐Ÿ‘Œ ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™

    One sweet ride



  16. Russell Drew on August 24, 2022 at 11:39 pm

    We all know how serious Jr takes all his color schemes but he’s the best when doing a throwback or bringing back a sponsor/scheme that may not even be very well known. Hats off to everyone at JRM. Can we all agree if Jr wins he gets all credit if he doesn’t Berry gets all blame? I’m completely joking



  17. Brad Purves on August 24, 2022 at 11:39 pm

    I love me some Sun drop!



  18. Matt Timmons on August 24, 2022 at 11:40 pm

    What is it about a quality, simple paint scheme that just oozes perfection? You think about the most iconic cars, the # 2 MGD, the # 3 Goodwrench, the # 43 STP, just to name a few, they just have that โ€œitโ€ factor aesthetically. This car has it as well. Someone else said Jr is the king of nostalgia and I agree, the guy has an eye for great paint schemes. Whatโ€™s your favorite paint scheme that comes to mind? I bet itโ€™s a simple designโ€ฆ.



  19. Isaac Sauder on August 24, 2022 at 11:40 pm

    Love the green a lot!!



  20. daniel clermont on August 24, 2022 at 11:43 pm

    Where can I buy a t-shirt?



  21. BOBBY J on August 24, 2022 at 11:44 pm

    So cool to see



  22. Chooch on August 24, 2022 at 11:45 pm

    Iโ€™m heading to Amazon to order some Sun Drop soda pop!



  23. That Guy on August 24, 2022 at 11:45 pm

    Hoosier Eh?



  24. Davi Clar on August 24, 2022 at 11:47 pm

    Imagine having the bucks to call down at "your shop" and say "hey, wrap me up a Sundrop car!".



  25. Karl Lambert on August 24, 2022 at 11:48 pm

    ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ LOL, the number of times you see Jr in that time lapse of them wrapping the car… He wasn’t kidding when he said he was particular about the way his car looks. And damn, does this scheme look good. Brings back some really cool memories.



  26. Da CheWookie on August 24, 2022 at 11:50 pm

    Beautiful car so great to see it come to life again



  27. Lee Brock on August 24, 2022 at 11:53 pm

    Come on now guys, you cant say paint scheme. Color scheme, or vinyl scheme would be acceptable but not paint scheme. There was NOO paint used in that new design lmao
    Disrespectful to all the custom painters and lettering guys out there!



  28. t 5 on August 24, 2022 at 11:57 pm

    More races! Way cool.



  29. R H on August 24, 2022 at 11:57 pm

    That Sun Drop car looks great!



  30. Shorttrackthing on August 24, 2022 at 11:58 pm

    Yes



  31. Mitchell Kyer on August 25, 2022 at 12:01 am

    This throwback is amazing! Need this car as a diecast!!!



  32. Larson Racing. on August 25, 2022 at 12:02 am

    Need the white strip on the front



  33. Devin Aschenbrenner on August 25, 2022 at 12:02 am

    Love me some throw back schemes. Damn that looks sharp as hell. And quite frankly the fact Sun Drop has partnered up to do this makes me wanna go buy some sun drop just to support them, support a car at a the Revival.

    I have a short track that’s now dead close to my heart. Spent the summwrs with my Grandfather who had raced at this same track going to watch Friday and Saturday night racing. How I would love to see just one more race at it. Seeing a Historical Track like North Wilkesboro get that opportunity is so beautiful.



  34. ed grant on August 25, 2022 at 12:04 am

    Excellent Throwback



  35. Geoffrey Keely on August 25, 2022 at 12:05 am

    If anyone is in need of tickets for the 8/31 race at North Wilkesboro. I have two tickets that we can’t use.



  36. Glen Thomas on August 25, 2022 at 12:06 am

    Get ready to see this scheme at short tracks across the world, itโ€™s so clean.



  37. Tommy Yancy on August 25, 2022 at 12:06 am

    That is too cool.



  38. Nick Earl on August 25, 2022 at 12:07 am

    Contingencies!!!!!!



  39. DIY Chad 726 on August 25, 2022 at 12:08 am

    I have always thought that the contingency sponsor stickers in front of and behind the front wheel wells always looked really good, I don’t know why the cars today do not have contingency sponsors like that anymore



  40. Troy Steele on August 25, 2022 at 12:10 am

    Badass ๐Ÿคค



  41. Gary Lehr Jr on August 25, 2022 at 12:11 am

    Dude….. should have let me paint it lol



  42. Ronald Lebowitz on August 25, 2022 at 12:11 am

  43. Zeke โ€˜nโ€™ Streak on August 25, 2022 at 12:12 am

    This is freekinโ€™ awesome!!



  44. Jarrett on August 25, 2022 at 12:12 am

    Surprised Junior didnโ€™t raise a stink about not having his side skirts painted.



  45. Tommy Hooks on August 25, 2022 at 12:12 am

    Sharp looking piece you got there Dale.



  46. Chad Hahn on August 25, 2022 at 12:13 am

    Awesome



  47. Mark Williams on August 25, 2022 at 12:15 am

    Southern Family! Southern Soda! Need a little Blackberry Smoke singing ! Feels like a good one coming on! ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ๐ŸŒ„



  48. Tommy Yancy on August 25, 2022 at 12:17 am

    So happy that so many people are discovering why so many of us have always been Dale Jr fans. He has so many new fans that didnโ€™t realize the person he has always been back when he was driving, but have now become fans. I became a fan in 1998 and have been ever since. Had nothing to do with his driving, although he tends to not get credit for how good he was. Junior fan for life.



  49. James Kim on August 25, 2022 at 12:17 am

    VERY NICE LOOKING !!!!!!!!!!!!!



  50. Craig Parrish on August 25, 2022 at 12:17 am

    So proud for you to get to return and race Northwilkesboro in your Lms. You have really made alot folks happy and part you played in making this happen.
