I can't find the song anywhere. By the looks of the singer it's not upbeat he looks like he has one foot in the grave.

The song is available by searching for “New 88” on iTunes ($0.99) and at amazon.com . You can listen to a sample of the song on both sites.

The lyrics to New 88:

Down in Daytona
The last lap of the race
We lost a living legend
That will never be replaced
Come another Sunday
In 2001
The whole world cried
When Junior won

The crowd was standing
On their feet
Proud of number eight
But remembering number three

Yes, he was our hero
No one can debate
Now we live for NASCAR
And that new 88

From Charlotte to the west coast
And all in-between
Millions are watching
On their TV screens
Cars are roaring
We don’t know their fate
There’s someone riding with you
In that new 88

Another day of racing
The fans won’t forget
Junior was driving
A hot corvette

The flames were rolling
All around his head
Would lightning strike twice?
Was our hero dead?

Then someone pulled him out
Of the flames right away
He don’t know his name
Until this very day

But there is one thing
The fans will agree
His uniform was white
And his number was three

From Charlotte to the west coast
And all in-between
Millions are watching
On their TV screens
Cars are roaring
We don’t know their fate
There’s someone riding with you
In that new 88

We’re all riding with you in that new Chevrolet

“JRW 88 Fan 4 Life!!”
