See the Dale Earnhardt, Sr. No. 3 Wrangler Car as Used on ESPN

See the stock car that was used in the ESPN original movie “3, The Story of Dale Earnhardt.” This car is yellow and blue and sports Dale’s famous number 3 with a Wrangler sponsorship on the side. Originally built as a Winston Cup short track car, it was repainted and modified for filming the famous “pass in the grass” racing scene between Dale and rival Bill Elliott.

Historically speaking, the success of the car is a true underdog story. In the early 1980s, the Chevy Monte Carlo Aerocoupe was a limited production car, sold in order to allow the fast-back window modification for racing. Needless to say, it worked well for Dale.

As part of Winter AutoFest, you can see this fully restored piece of racing and Hollywood history and honor the legendary driver, Dale Earnhardt, Sr.

The car is on display Friday and Saturday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
