STERN PRESENTS DALE EARNHARDT, JR. PINBALL MACHINE
September 5, 2007 - Dale Earnhardt, Jr. is one of NASCAR's most popular drivers today. Now Stern Pinball, Inc. follows suit with the Dale Earnhardt, Jr.™ Limited Edition Pinball, a six hundred, chrome-trimmed model. Designed by Pat Lawlor and his team at Pat Lawlor Design, Dale Earnhardt, Jr.™ Pinball features the high energy of NASCAR racing along with the fascination of Dale Earnhardt, Jr..
The Dale Earnhardt, Jr.™ Pinball features the Dale Earnhardt, Inc. red '8'® car along with the Budweiser marks. Stern offers two optional backglasses, one with Budweiser marks 830-5297-01, and another without Budweiser marks for those with alcohol sensitive locations.
A primary component of the Dale Earnhardt, Jr.™ Pinball is the racetrack that encompasses the entire playing surface. Energized by magnets, the loop sends pinballs racing around like cars racing around a track. Dale Earnhardt, Jr.™ Pinball also features a truck hauler that the player can launch a ball through along with a toy Test Car that the player can bang with the pinball.
Other features of the game include a voice over from Allen Bestwick, NASCAR television analyst for NBC, and recording artist Sammy Hagar's "I Can't Drive 55," a popular tune among NASCAR fans.
Two great pinball artists have combined their efforts on the Dale Earnhardt, Jr.™ Pinball art. John Youssi did the backglass, while Kevin O'Connor made the cabinet and playfield.
Gary Stern says, "We will make the #8 Dale Jr. Budweiser Pinball once and never again. We will make six hundred of the Limited Edition-no more."
