Never Fear - Smoke is Here
The Dale Jr. Foundation is a charity dedicated to giving underprivileged individuals with a focus on youth, the resources to improve their confidence and education, and the opportunity to achieve extraordinary goals. Of course all that good works takes cash. Therefore, they conduct several fundraisers.
Unfortunately, NASCAR’s Most Poplar driver Dale Earnhardt Jr., still suffering from the widely publicized side effects of his concussion, could not fulfill his commitment to drive fans who had contributed $8,000 to the Dale Earnhardt Jr. Foundation for the chance to ride around Charlotte Motor Speedway in a two-seat stock car last night.
“We were in a bind and needed some help and the person that volunteered to come in and drive the car was Tony Stewart,” Earnhardt reported, “So, on behalf of the foundation, Tony, thank you for helping us be able to raise the money tonight that we raised and give these people that paid that money the ride of their life.”
Steward was eliminated from the chase after his thirteenth place finish at Dover International Speedway last weekend. He is slated to retire from Sprint Cup after this season.
