Subject: 1:144 scale racing champions cars, no Dale Earnhardt? rss

Hi all,

I've recently started acquiring the 1997 Racing Champions Nascar 1:144 scale cars to compliment this game. So far I've been able to get most of the top drivers from that year. However, I can't seem to locate the Dale Earnhardt car anywhere?

I've searched the internet far and wide for it as well as for a list of cars made from that year by Racing Champions but I cannot find anything. Does anyone know why they left out probably the most popular driver at that time of the series? I'm assuming there was an issue with the licensing agreement? Bummer, I was hoping to add "The Intimidator" to my regular gaming.

I might try and make a mold out of one of the cars and make my own Earnhardt as well as a few others from that year that I can't find either...Ricky Rudd, Ward Burton too.

Btw, I really love the game so far. We played it last Thursday night with my regular gaming group and it went over really well. We are talking about starting a regular league with this game.

Thanks

I'm not sure if there was a contract with Winners' Circle rather than Racing Champions for No. 3, in which case you may have more luck searching for the Micro Machines cars? The sculpts aren't nearly as nice, though.

Certainly WC produced 1/64 cars and I couldn't find a 1/64 RC No.3 nor 1/144.

Rudd's No. 10 exists though. Haven't seen Burton.

No.3 is a different kind of model but guess it is okay.

That is indeed a Winners' Circle/Micro Machines car.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I've decided that I'm going to try and 'make' my own Earnhardt car using a duplicate black car in the series. I will post what I come up with. Probably won't be able to get this done for a week or two.

I might try that, too. I've got about five of Irvan's 28 from buying various lots to make up a field.
