DALE EARNHARDT JR.
Hometown: Kannapolis, North Carolina
A third-generation driver in a family forever connected to the sport of stock-car racing, Dale Jr. is a legend perfectly disguised as a regular dude. In fact, this 13-time winner of NASCAR’s Most Popular Driver award is equal parts approachable, down to earth, and elite athlete. When Jr. isn’t repping his No. 88 car and challenging for checkered flags, he’s probably listening to music, traveling, or quenching his thirst for NASCAR history. He also enjoys spending time at his home, Dirty Mo Acres, where, in typical Jr. fashion, he’s built a vintage Western town and luxury treehouse to go with his paintball course and five miles of ATV trails. Like his fans say, DALE YEAH!
