2014 Dale Earnhardt Jr #88 Diet Mtn Dew / Bristol "Checkers or Wreckers" / Raced Version / Chevrolet SS NASCAR 1/24 diecast, by Action Lionel. Dale Earnhardt Jr raced this Hendrick Motorsports #88 Diet Mtn Dew Chevrolet SS in the NASCAR Sprint Cup, Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway on August 23, 2014. "Checkers or Wreckers" will feature replicated damage, tire marks, repair tape, and any other markings that tell the car's story of a wild race.

Early on in the 2014 Night Race at Bristol, Earnhardt was cruising and keeping himself near the front of the field when disaster struck. The race leaders made contact and a spun car bounced off the inside wall and right into Earnhardt's path. His #88 Diet Mountain Dew Chevrolet was struck and suffered extreme damage. Even though their chances of victory ended with the collision, Earnhardt and his Hendrick Motorsports crew refused to give up on gaining additional positions. Damaged body panels were removed, tape was applied to hold other parts of the car together, and even the #88 on the car's driver side had to be recreated using neon orange tape to meet NASCAR regulations. With all the damage repaired as best as possible, Earnhardt returned to the race for several more laps after the incident and picked up additional points due to the team's diligence to return to the track
