Joining the endless ranks of officially-licensed Barbie dolls (tie-ins have ranged from Harley-Davidson to the X-Files and literally everything in-between) are a pair of new plastic fantastic NASCAR fangirls-- Jeff Gordon Barbie and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Barbie.
The Jeff Gordon NASCAR Barbie sports a #24 t-shirt, a DuPont jacket, jeans and cowboy boots, while the Dale Jr. Barbie rocks a #8-logoed minidress, a read headband, red go-go boots and a Dale Jr. flag for her to wave from the imaginary grandstand. You'll be fascinated to learn that both dolls use the Model/Muse body sculpt. Too much information? Clearly, but it's the kind of thing that will likely remain in your "useless information I can't forget" memory banks until the reaper calls your name.

Adding the dolls to your permanent collection will run you a somewhat ridiculous $34.95 a pop. Hey, Mattel's got to recoup that (undoubtedly) sizeable licensing fee they paid NASCAR, right? Call us when a Richard Petty edition comes out, and maybe we'll talk.

      This is why NASCAR is awful. It went from a auto race to a banger race. I only like the pit-crew because that's at least interesting.

      Hmmmmm, a new look for NASCAR huh? i guess it would do good on the market. But, like Candice said, there are other drivers that are much better liked than-->(Jeff Gordon)"YUK". I hope "ALL" other drivers are included, even retired ones!

      dwight.. your so nuts. i love richard petty but he won tons of those 200 against small time drivers without factory support like he had. as for nascar being stagnated... what the hell are you talking about? and pearl.. jeff is on of the most popular and best drivers out there. i'm not even a fan of his but damn... i know that. most of the haters in here most likely have #3 stickers on their cars. he is dead. God bless him but let him go.

      Why is everyone crying about the dolls? You should be crying for the other so called sports that are drug infested like Football, Basketball, Hockey, Baseball. At least NASCAR is drug free. They don't put up with it at all!So sit back and enjoy the dolls & ETC at least its good clean fun.At least they earn their money!!!!Get a life you whinners!!

      JEFF GORDON HAS ALWAYS BEEN NASCAR'S VERSION OF BARBIE ANYWAY. NOW THEY NEED A JIMMY JOHNSON DOLL SO THEY CAN CONTINUE TO BE A COUPLE

      What is even more sad is the NASCAR romance novels that you can find at the grocery store. However, if they made a Tony Stewart or Denny Hamlin Barbie, I would soooo buy one!

      OK - there's already a Kyle Petty doll and a Bill Elliot Doll - and I have both of them autographed - what's wrong with the 24 and the 8 having dolls too? I'm sure I'll get those also - my girls love them

      I would rather watch the movie CARS than NASCAR any day it has a much nicer ending!
