That was my question as I stopped at the Sparta Family Fare this noon to pick up a few things.
This beautiful car was on display in the parking lot on this otherwise dull and dreary day.
I, of course, had to stop and ask the fellow who was sitting in the truck as it was raining off and on.
Sadly, Dale Earnhardt Jr wasn’t in Sparta, but Car 88 was.
The Car 88 that is currently on display is not the current Car 88 but on that he has used in the past. No longer in use as a race car, they gutted the interior and filled it with electronics, turning it into a simulator.
Now Dale Jr’s sponsor, Suave, uses it promotionally for their product and allow the public to some look at it and, when the weather is good, they actually pull it out of the display trailer and let people experience it inside and out!
Like I said, today it is raining and I was soaked by the time I got back. Later I went back with my camera and shot a few pictures.
For those Dale Jr fans I don’t have to mention it but Dale Jr will be in Michigan next weekend, 6/19/2011, making an appearance at the Michigan International Speedway.
Suave also had a representative in the store and they were giving away match box size Car 88 with every 2 bottles of Suave Shampoo you bought. I bought 12 bottles of shampoo. Anyone want one?
We shall see. In the meantime check out Car 88! Its really cool!
Update: I already had one post requesting a Dale Earnhardt Car 88 car and sent them an email about it. I will give out another one to the next person that posts that they want one and then take two to Anime-ZING! in Davenport, Iowa next weekend. More later on how those two will be given away!
