Dale Earnhardt, Jr. - or "Junior" - is #8 of the Piston Cup Racers.

Junior (short for Dale Earnhardt, Jr.) is a character in Cars.


Racing sensation Dale, Jr. has wasted no time gathering victories and creating a commanding track presence since winning the Piston Cup Rookie of the Year honors in 2000. His drive and charisma have scored with fans too-- he's won The Piston Cup Most Popular Driver around 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.

Junior is The King's biggest fan.


  • Junior is an Axxelo Fission, which is identical to the NASCAR Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS.
