Dale Earnhardt Jr. is only competing in one Xfinity Series race this year – but it will be a special one.
Earnhardt will start in the Go Bowling 250 at Richmond Raceway on September 11th – the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
Earnhardt’s car will feature a special paint scheme inspired by the 9/11 Memorial’s Tribute In Light, and including the words ‘Never Forget’.
The 46-year-old Earnhardt retired in 2017 but makes one start each year for JR Motorsports, which he co-owns.
How else would you like to see the sports world commemorate the 9/11 anniversary this year?
