Dale Earnhardt Jr. brought Gotham's masked crime fighter to Michigan International Speedway, thanks to this special "The Dark Knight Rises" paint scheme chosen by fans. And he won.

Of course, this isn't the first time a driver has dropped his normal colors in favor of a special paint scheme. Since a man quite close to Junior's heart did it in 1995, NASCAR stars everywhere have featured some eye-catching designs on the sides of their cars.

Occasionally involving Batman. And sometimes a spin in victory lane, too.
