Dale Jr to drive #88 in 2008

In a press conference held in Dallas, Dale Earnhardt Jr and Hendrick Motorsports CEO Rick Hendrick announced that in 2008, Dale Jr. will be driving the #88 Chevrolet sponsored by Mountain Dew/Amp Energy and The National Guard.

Two paint schemes will be used throughout the 2008 season, one for Mountain Dew/Amp Energy, and another for The National Guard.

They showed some video of the new cars, and I'll see if I can find some pictures later on today (press conference isn't over yet).

You can already buy #88 Dale Jr merchandise on NASCAR's website, hehe.
Including pre-sales on 1/64 and 1/18 diecasts of both cars, which are expected to ship out at the end of January.

Makes it easier for the WT to update their #8 tattoos

"WT"? Being just a little stereotypical there aren't we?

I'm not a fan of NASCAR any longer, but I have friends and family who are, and they aren't "WT". Granted, there are alot of them who deserve that title, but not everyone falls into that category.

I may be overreacting a bit, and I'm not looking to start an argument. I'm just a former NASCAR fan, who has watched the sport become a joke, and who finally said the hell with it after Jr. turned out to be a real a-hole.

OK. Sorry for my rant. I'll go away now.

I'm still a NASCAR fan, but not as die-hard as I used to be.
With the changes they've made recently, it is definitely on its way out.

Anyway... here's a picture of Dale Jr's new cars:



Can't see the sides or back much in that picture, but the sides are white, witch the exception of where the hood color blends into the side, and the number 88 is red.
Also, the back "TV panel" is black.

I thought the "White Trash" thing was a little much, but the gist of the joke was funny.

I don't think that would be refering to all Nascar fans, just the ones with the tatoo of a driver.

That was my assumption as well.
That remark certainly doesn't cover all Nascar fans.
