Late Model Days


Dale Jr. cut his teeth racing around the southeast in Late Model stock cars with his brother, Kerry, and sister, Kelley. Much of Dale Jr.'s early racing was done at Myrtle Beach (S.C.) Speedway each weekend after working on his car during the week. Dale Jr. also competed at Concord (N.C.) Speedway, North Wilkesboro (N.C.) Speedway and South Boston (Va.) Speedway among other tracks with the support of long-time Earnhardt partners Mom 'n' Pops and Sun Drop.
