Dale Earnhardt Sr will be Honored during Southern 500 weekend at Darlington Raceway
As part of its throwback weekend, celebrating the 1985-89 era of the sport, Darlington Raceway will be honoring Dale Earnhardt Sr. and the 30th anniversary of his 1987 Bojangles’ Southern 500 victory.
On Saturday night, September 2, the track will host An Evening Honoring Dale Earnhardt Sr., a can’t-miss event, which will feature a panel of personalities talking about the seven-time NASCAR champion, including children Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kelley Earnhardt Miller, Kerry Earnhardt and longtime team owner Richard Childress.
“I’m looking forward to being a part of this event to tell stories about dad,” Dale Earnhardt Jr. said. “His driving style and Darlington really had a lot of similarities; just how tough and gritty they were. It was always one of his favorite tracks and that showed with how much success he had there.”
