Jeffrey Earnhardt, son of Kerry Earnhardt and grandson of the late racing legend Dale Earnhardt, Sr., visited both campuses of Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind to promote fire safety during National Fire Safety Month. The young Earnhardt is carrying on a family tradition started by his “Grandpa”, of participating in AIDB’s Race Fever fundraiser.
I've had the pleasure of meeting Jeffrey and I have to say he is the spitting image of his late grandfather. He truly reminds me of Dale.
Earnhardt, NASCAR’s only 4th generation driver, will join a host of other drivers and racing greats at the 25th Annual Race Fever.
