This is the SCX Chevy Monte Carlo NASCAR Earnhardt Sr. "Wrangler" #3 Slot Car. The Wrangler #3 car is a tribute to the NASCAR legend, Dale Earnhardt. The Intimidator himself would have appreciated the power of the RX-42B motor which gives this car ample power to be driven aggressively around the corners and fly down the straight away past the competition. Any bumps in the "asphalt" are easily handled by the tilting motor pod which keeps the back of the car firmly on the track.
Details like the window netting and rear wing adjustments are represented here to be admired on the slot car as they are on the original. The wide stance of the body gives the car a stable ride around the track and especially in the corners. The striking blue and yellow Wrangler paint job is faithfully representative of the original that sits on display at Richard Childress Racing in North Carolina.
The blue and yellow decoration is a representation of a car raced by "Sr." in the Winston Select race Earnhardt on May 22, 1999 at Lowe's Motor Speedway in Charlotte, North Carolina. "The Man in Black" didn't race his normal paint scheme that night when he started 5th on the grid. After the 70 lap event was finished he crossed the line in 4th place. Earnhardt drove the blue and yellow throw back car to the front of the field at one point but due to handling issues he was unable to win the all star race that evening.
The paint scheme was a favorite of Earnhardt's because it represented one of the major sponsors he had during his career. In the 1997 Busch Series Earnhardt's son, Dale Earnhardt Jr., drove a similarly decorated car with the number 31. Dale Earnhardt Sr. made a name for himself driving the Wrangler car during his early racing career and now you can too on the slot car track with this latest release.
