Dale Earnhardt Jr. as Superman at Michigan Speedway This Sunday
Dale Earnhardt Jr. had a good finish last Sunday at Pocono and the “Party in the Pocono’s 400,” He finished third. Now he’s going to a track that he’s had luck with in the past. But this time, he’s getting a some Super help.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. will soar around the Michigan International Speedway with the Superman logo painted on his car during this Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race. Earnhardt’s new paint job is part of a promotional deal with the Superman movie ‘Man of Steel,’ which debuts Friday in theaters.
It’s the second time Jr. has used a superhero paint scheme. He recorded a rare win with a Batman paint job at Michigan last year. If Earnhardt wins this year as Superman, maybe he’ll decide to use a new Justice League member’s logo for every Michigan race. Although I think the Wonder Woman scheme might work better for Danica Patrick. I know I would rather see that.
Dale along with the rest of the NASCAR boys and girl will be at Michigan for the Quicken Loans 400. TNT has the coverage beginning at 1pm.
