Presenting Junior's Phoenix Diet Mountain Dew paint scheme

Jay Busbee

Hey folks, here's a brand-spankin'-new Yahoo! Sports exclusive, your very first look at what Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s paint scheme will look like come this weekend at Phoenix. (Hey, not every exclusive is Watergate, you know.) Anyway, Junior held a fan contest to paint the 88, and here's the story of the winning scheme chosen from more than 10,000 entries.

Junior will debut the car at, of all things, a Phoenix Coyotes hockey game Friday night. And oh, there will be photos of that, you bet. Puck Daddy and I will hockey-fight over 'em.
