Gordon Tops Best Seller List

Lionel NASCAR Collectables announced their Top-10 Best Selling NASCAR diecast collectable cars for 2011 today, and perhaps surprisingly, NASCAR's Most Popular Driver was not at the top of the list. In fact, Dale Earnhardt, Jr.'s No. 88 Amp Energy/National Guard Chevrolet was only the number-four selling diecast for the season just completed.

Jeff Gordon's new No. 24 AARP/Drive to End Hunger Chevrolet topped the list of best sellers for 2011, followed by Kevin Harvick's No. 29 Budweiser Chevrolet. Trevor Bayne's Daytona 500-winning No. 21 Wood Brothers Racing Ford was third, followed by Earnhardt's Chevrolet. Members of Earnhardt Nation can take heart, however, as their driver accounted for no less than three of the Top-10 sellers.

The complete Top-10 list included:

1. Jeff Gordon No. 24 AARP/Drive to End Hunger Chevrolet

2. Kevin Harvick No. 29 Budweiser Chevrolet

3. Trevor Bayne No. 21 Motorcraft Daytona Win Ford

4. Dale Earnhardt Jr. No. 88 Amp Energy Chevrolet

5. Tony Stewart No. 14 Mobil 1 Chevrolet

6. Dale Earnhardt No. 96 Cardinal Tractor Ford

7. Dale Earnhardt Jr. No. 88 National Guard Heritage Chevrolet

8. Tony Stewart No. 14 Office Depot Chevrolet

9. Dale Earnhardt Jr. No. 88 Dale Jr. Foundation/Vh1 Save the Music Chevrolet

10. Kevin Harvick No. 29 Budweiser Military Tribute Chevrolet

    Pretty strong sales for the AMP car considering it hasn't changed significantly in 4 years, whereas the Gordon and Harvick are first year paint schemes and the Bayne 500 win was a no-brainer.
