CAR.

(FoxNews) – A Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet campaigned by the late
Dale Earnhardt sold Saturday for $220,000, including 10 percent buyer’s
premium, at the Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Collector-Car Auction.

The familiar black No. 3 Chevrolet Lumina was raced by Earnhardt in 1989
and ’90, according to the auction listing. It was driven by Earnhardt to one
of his nine victories at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

In 1990, Earnhardt won nine races and the fourth of his seven championships
in what is now the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.

The auction listing stated,“This NASCAR Cup Car comes with supporting
documentation from Crew Chief Kirk Shelmerdine, who personally inspected
the car and found it to be 100% true as raced by Dale Earnhardt,”
