Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s favorite era
Retired NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. will give one lucky fan a three-lap ride at South Carolina’s Darlington Raceway in late August.
The Darlington ride-along will be the grand prize of an Aug. 22 reverse raffle “drawing party” at Langtree Plantation on Lake Norman. The event will benefit Dove House Children’s Advocacy Center, the Statesville-based nonprofit that assists sexually abused children.
The drawing also will include a chance to win:
▪ A pair of Dale Jr.-autographed skeleton gloves.
▪ Race tickets with VIP treatment.
▪ A Q&A with Dale Jr.
▪ A Meet & Greet with Dale Jr., including an autograph and photo.
▪ Four-night stay at Hampton Inn Huntersville, with shuttle.
The dinner raffle is scheduled for 6:30 to 9 p.m. at Langtree Plantation, 554 Langtree Rd., Mooresville.
Tickets are $88.88, a nod to Earnhardt Jr.’s No. 88 Hendrick Motorsports car. Tickets include admission and dinner for two, beverages, music by the Buffugees and a chance at 25 prizes.
