Remember 30 Odd 6 during the season, which focused on the 30th driver in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series? This is the same idea, only for retiring drivers instead. We’re starting with the most popular retiree.
Name: Dale Earnhardt Jr
Hometown: Kannapolis, NC
Team: Hendrick Motorsports
- He owns a restaurant/bar/nightclub franchise called Whisky River (I’ve been to the one in Charlotte, NC, and 10/10, would recommend),
- His favorite team outside of racing is the Washington Redskins.
- He proposed to his wife, Amy, on a trip to Germany in 2015 (#goals, if anyone wanted to know lol).
- He and his sister Kelly Earnhardt Miller run the Dale Jr Foundation, which gives underprivileged people, especially the youth, the ability to improve their confidence and education as well as an opportunity to achieve their goals.
- He has a personal car collection that includes a 1967 Chevrolet Camaro (LUCKY!), a 2001 Corvette C5-R with a Le Mans wing, a 2005 Corvette, a 2001 “Intimidator SS” Camaro and a 1948 Chevrolet truck.
- When not in the car, he enjoys music, traveling and NASCAR history.
