Dale Jr. is NASCAR
If NASCAR were to lose Dale Earnhardt Jr., one has to wonder if it would collapse.  This year, Action Racing Collectables (ARC), the popular die-cast brand owned by Lionel NASCAR Collectables, celebrates its 20th year of producing NASCAR die-cast cars. In July of 1992, Action began marketing its first die-cast product. Since then, the brand has become part and parcel of the racing world. To celebrate the 20-year milestone of Action Racing Collectables (ARC), Lionel NASCAR Collectables is releasing an ARC 20th Anniversary Commemorative die-cast. This 1:24 scale special edition die-cast is deco'd with the 20th Year logo and marks.

To that end, Lionel NASCAR Collectables is releasing its ARC Mid-Year Top 10 - the best-selling 1:24 scale ARC paint schemes from the end of the 2011 season through July 10, 2012. The list includes all variations of each paint scheme - including Raced Win finishes. Unlike Lionel NASCAR Collectable's year-end top 10 list, this list is comprised of Action Racing Collectables-branded die-cast only. The top 10 is dominated by Dale Earnhardt Jr.:

1. Dale Earnhardt Jr. #88 Diet Mountain Dew/"The Dark Knight Rises" Chevrolet Impala
2. Dale Earnhardt Sr. 1989 #3 Goodwrench Chevrolet Monte Carlo
3. Tony Stewart #14 Office Depot 2011 Championship Chevrolet Impala
4. Dale Earnhardt Sr. 1989 #3 Goodwrench Chevrolet Lumina
5. Matt Kenseth #17 Best Buy Ford Fusion
6. Dale Earnhardt Jr. #88 AMP Energy Chevrolet Impala

8. Mark Martin #55 Aaron's Toyota Camry
9. Dale Earnhardt Jr. #88 National Guard/NASCAR Unites Chevrolet Impala
10. Dale Earnhardt Jr. #88 AMP Energy/7-Eleven Chevrolet Impala

All the paint schemes which made the top 10 and also the ARC 20th Anniversary die-cast design are available on the Action Racing Collectables 20th Anniversary Pinterest BoardLionel PR
