A Special Race
In July 2017, Dale Jr took his last laps around the Kentucky Motor Speedway in a special paint scheme in support of Nationwide Children's Hospital. In addition to the hospital's signature butterflies , Dale Jr.'s No. 88 Chevrolet SS also included the names of donors and supporters from around the country.
To honor Dale Jr.'s race, Lionel Racing created 1:24-scale replica die-cast cars for purchase with proceeds from each sale benefiting the hospital's life-saving research and care.
