Dale Earnhardt Jr. isn't pleased with the planned name change:

Too bad, I think that's a pretty sweet and very unique name.

I doubt care about the Ernhardt angle, but I like the name.

I normally like alliteration, but not in this case. I’d prefer they stay with “Intimidators,” but if not, I’d prefer they avoid any name that begins with a C or a K.

Apparently they don't "own" the name (owned by Earnhardt family) which I think limits what they can do with it as well as some financial implications.

I googled "North Carolina indigenous animals"- I suggest "Red Wolves"

No, but "Pie" would work great.

Or you could just name them the "500" and really freak people out.

Warthogs. I still miss that name on W-S. So much cooler than generic Dash.
