MOORESVILLE, NC (Apr. 17, 2006) – The logo of The Dale Earnhardt Foundation is making the rounds, literally, at NASCAR races this season one lap at a time.  The familiar “victory” silhouette of racing legend Dale Earnhardt is now part of the official paint scheme on all Dale Earnhardt, Inc. race cars in both the Busch and Nextel Cup series races. 

The logo made its debut this past week during races at Texas Motor Speedway.  The Dale Earnhardt Foundation logo will be visible on the right rear “taillight” of all DEI cars, just above the car number decal. 

“We’re very pleased that the DEI race teams are showing their support for the Foundation and its charitable efforts in such a visible manner,” said Dick Baker, Executive Director of The Dale Earnhardt Foundation.  “This is a creative idea that will help us to expand awareness and recognition for the Foundation with race fans and the general public alike.”

Dale Earnhardt, Inc. races the #11 Menard’s Chevrolet driven by Paul Menard in the Busch Series.  In the Nextel Cup Series, the team races the #1 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet driven by Martin Truex, Jr. and the #8 Budweiser Chevrolet driven by Dale Earnhardt, Jr.

Founded in 2002 by Teresa Earnhardt, The Dale Earnhardt Foundation was established to carry on Dale’s name and good works through charitable causes that support Children, Education and Wildlife Preservation.  For more information please visit www.thedaleearnhardtfoundation.org.
