I will post a pic of the Jurassic Park car tomorrow. I never got the Racing Stripe car. The only Fantasy cars I ever collected were the Gordon 00' Fantasy (which I am looking for again) and the DEI Pit Practice cars, and the RCR Snap-On Carolina Run car.

He actually ran the Racing Stripes car though.
#24 "Jeff Gordon Racing Stripes" Chevy Monte Carlo. This car special paint scheme to coincide with the movie "Racing Stripes". It will not be run in a race. (Scheduled production of 4,920).

The Racing Stripes car was done as a promo for the flick. It was sweet and would have made a neat scheme for a race, but unfortunately, he did not race it.

just checking, that is the one I thought he meant.

He did run a Stars and Stripes car for 4th of July one year, just checking to see if you meant that one, he did actually race it.

It was mostly blue, with some fireworks on the hood and all.

It was a promo but didn't get a lot of promo because it debuted in Atlanta October 2004, 1 week after the Hendrick Martinsville plane crash. You'd be hard pressed to find a Jeff Gordon promo that had all the contigency sponsorships/decals on it.

I remember Gordon had that stupid Zebra striped drivers suit with the matching Helmet and was taking pictures with kids standing next to the promo show car.

I think thats where the confusion comes in because I believe Gordon and HMS intended to run it at Atlanta, but remembering the victims took a much higher priority that weekend, obviously. The fact that "Dupont" wasn't on the car's TV panel in favor of "Racing Stripes" keeps me from being 100% convinced this car would run at Atlanta. Dupont never gives up the TV panel of the #24.
