The self-professed “retired automotive service mechanic” has added yet another trophy to his automotive graveyard.

It’s last rites for Danica Patrick’s “Wonder Woman” Ford Fusion at Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s car cemetery. Patrick, who was in a huge wreck with Joey Logano and Aric Almirola a week ago at Kansas Speedway, didn’t have much left of her car afterward.

And the car had even less when it arrived at Earnhardt’s farm near Mooresville, North Carolina, missing the entire front end, including the engine.

One of Patrick’s team members approached Earnhardt to see if he’d be interested in giving Wonder Woman a proper burial. The next thing you know, the body was on an old pickup truck heading to its final resting ground.

Earnhardt boasted about the newest addition to his collection on Twitter, which then prompted a reply from NASCAR Hall of Famer and former teammate Mark Martin, which led to another reply from Junior.
