|The real Dale Earnhardt, Jr.|
Dale Earnhardt, Junior, also known as Junior or Dale Jr., is a Piston Cup race car based off a famous racer Dale Earnhardt, Jr. Dale is a famous Piston Cup racer that has won several awards, such as the Piston Cup Most Popular Driver award.
Junior is based on, named after and voiced by the real life NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt, Jr. Junior is also based on the paint scheme of the #8 Budweiser Chevrolet Monte Carlo that Earnhardt, Jr. drove in his Sprint Cup debut from 1999 through the end of 2007 at Dale Earnhardt, Inc., though with the company's logo instead of the Budweiser logo, so to prevent controversy over the product placement of alcohol in a G-rated film. In 2008, a year and a half after Cars came out, Earnhardt, Jr. moved to the #88 National Guard/Diet Mountain Dew/AMP Energy Chevrolet SS at Hendrick Motorsports.
Dale is an Axxelo Fission, which is identical to the NASCAR Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS. He is painted red, with the number 8 painted in white on his doors and roof. He has the Dale Earnhardt, Inc. logo on his hood as well as his fenders, and several Piston Cup sponsor stickers on his doors.
As a GoAnimate version, he had a red hair and skin, dark red eyeleashes, and black eyes. He also wears red shirt with black line, red pants, and black shoes.
In Cars, Dale is first seen during the race at the Motor Speedway of the South, as one of the competitors. He is later seen in an interview about Lightning McQueen reported missing, and again at the final race, wishing The King good luck.
At the very end of the film, Dale is touring the racing museum with Lynda Weathers and Strip 'The King' Weathers, impressed with Doc Hudson's number of wins in a single season, and wonders where Doc went.
"Racing sensation Dale Jr. has wasted no time gathering victories and creating a commanding track presence since winning Piston Cup Rookie of the Year honors in 2000. His drive and charisma have scored with fans too -- he's earned The Piston Cup Most Popular Driver award four years running! But when it's all said and done he's just a shy guy, who enjoys quiet time with his friends and family."
