DALE EARNHARDT SR. 1989 GOODWRENCH WILKESBORO WINNER RACED VERSION AEROCOUPE MONTE CARLO 1/24 ACTION
Tire scuffs. Burn marks. Scratched metal. This Dale Earnhardt die-cast tells a story – and it’s the first Raced Win die-cast in the NASCAR Classics line. In April 1989 at North Wilkesboro Speedway, Earnhardt was in the throes of a 15-race winless drought. But the day before the First Union 400, he broke the track’s qualifying record of 117.524 mph. Driving the No. 3 Goodwrench Chevrolet Monte Carlo on Goodyear’s all-new radial tires, Earnhardt was beyond fast.
On race day, he led 296 laps of 400 laps. Midway through, he traded paint a few times with Rusty Wallace. As a result, both drivers were nearly black-flagged by NASCAR for “overaggressive racing.” “They (NASCAR) always get excited if I bump somebody,” said Earnhardt after the race. “Me and Rusty weren’t giving each other a hard time. We were having a fun time.”
With 10 laps to go, Earnhardt was out front. Then Alan Kulwicki made a late charge on lap 396, trying to make a pass. Kulwicki slid high into turn two and Earnhardt sailed on, garnering his first victory of the season by 2.20 seconds. Your Earnhardt collection won’t be complete without this Raced Win die-cast.
