In celebration of the 20th Anniversary of Jeff Gordons first DAYTONA 500® victory, Lionel Racing is excited to announce the next jewel in our NASCAR® Classics line the No. 24 DuPont Refinishes Chevrolet Monte Carlo Race Win die-cast.
Gordon took the lead for the final time in the 1997 Daytona 500® when he dropped below the leader going into Turn 1 with six laps left. A lap later the yellow flag came out for a multi-car accident in Turn 4 and the race ended under caution. It was Gordons 20th victory.
Hendrick Motorsports cars finished 1-2-3 with Gordon leading 40 laps. It was the first of his 10 wins that year a season in which he captured his second of four championships.
Never before produced as a Race Win die-cast, this Action Racing Collectables replica is now available to order in both 1:24 and 1:64 scales. Each scale will feature race markings and damage.
Plus, if you order from Lionel Racing you'll be automatically entered to win a 1:24 prototype of this commemorative die-cast that is autographed by BOTH Jeff Gordon and his 1997 crew chief Ray Evernham!
