Diet Mountain Dew® is putting the pedal to the metal and giving one lucky fan the chance to win the ultimate road trip ride: Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s classic Diet Mountain Dew-inspired Chevy Nomad restored by the crew at Gas Monkey Garage from Discovery Channel’s popular ‘Fast N’ Loud’ TV show. Dale Jr. worked closely with Diet Mountain Dew and the Gas Monkey Garage team to restore the iconic Chevy Nomad, which is painted in signature Diet Mountain Dew green and customized by Gas Monkey Garage’s Richard Rawlings and Aaron Kaufman. The restoration and customization of the Chevy Nomad debuted on the first episode of season two of ‘Fast N’ Loud,’ on September 2.
"I’ve always appreciated the work that the guys at Gas Monkey Garage do, so it has been a great experience to work with them on this Diet Mountain Dew-inspired Chevy Nomad," said Dale Earnhardt Jr., currently 7th in racing point standings. "It’s pretty awesome that Diet Mountain Dew is giving one lucky fan the chance to take the Chevy Nomad home. I would love to add this ride to my collection, but think it would look even nicer in the garage of a Dew Crew fan."
The classic Chevy Nomad is one of Dale Jr.’s favorite rides, reminding him of family road trips when he was younger. Currently on air, Dale Jr. worked closely with Mountain Dew® on his own commercial, part of DEW’s Living Portraits campaign, which showcases some of his other favorite and defining aspects of his life.
