Info

The garage and shop of Dale Earnhardt's childhood home in Kannapolis, N.C., where his father, Ralph, worked on his own race cars. "When I was a kid," Dale once said, "I would do anything I could to help, to be around racing." On school nights when he couldn't tag along to watch his dad race, Dale would race to the garage the next morning. He said he could tell just by looking at the car how well his dad had done the night before. "If there were a lot of tire marks on the doors, he'd probably won 'cause guys had beat and banged on him trying to get around."
