For the first time since 2011, a driver without the last name Earnhardt topped Lionel Racing’s die-cast list.
Chase Elliott, the 2016 Sunoco Rookie of the Year, placed first on Lionel’s best selling die-cast list for this past season. Elliott’s NAPA Auto Parts Chevrolet (pictured above) ranked #1 in die-cast sold. The list was revealed via Lionel Racing’s website on Thursday.
Dale Earnhardt Jr, who sat out the second half of 2016 with concussion like symptoms, was ranked in four of the top 10 spots of the list. No Fords or Toyotas made Lionel’s Top-10. A complete list, along with photos of each car on track, can be found below.
