Fans of the late NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt will gather in Mooresville on his birthday Friday to celebrate his life and legacy.
A highlight of this year’s commemoration will be the first public viewing of a custom statue of Earnhardt by artist Jason Fizer of Roanoke, Va. The sculpture will be shown in private seatings throughout the day. Tickets are free but are first-come, first-serve.
Various Earnhardt items will be displayed, and DEI’s Grand Showroom will open to the public.
Fans also can enjoy custom birthday cupcakes in honor of “The Intimidator’s” birthday.
The event is scheduled for 10 a.m to 5 p.m. Admission is free, and plenty of parking is available.
