Taylor Earnhardt, 19 year old daughter of deceased racing legend Dale Earnhardt Sr., unveiled a collectible car that honors her father and film legend John Wayne. The Texas Motor Speedway promotion was announced in the Stockyard on Thursday.
TMS President Eddie Gossage was on hand with Taylor Earnhardt and Marisa Wayne Ditteaux, daughter of the late actor John Wayne to kick off a limited edition collectible giveaway for the first 333 customers who buy 4 tickets in the front stretch seating area for the November 2nd NASCAR Dickie 500 Sprint Cup race. The Dale and The Duke die cast reproduction cars are in 1/24 scale and are estimated to be worth $75.00 .
Also on hand were Earnhardt Sr.’s widow Terry Earnhardt, President and CEO of Motorsports Authentics Mark Dyer and Hollywood actor Buck Taylor. The Legends series has already produced a collectible which featured Earnhardt and country music great Johnny Cash.
Taylor Earnhardt, who will be twenty years old in December, is into racing – western barrel racing….that is. She has won championships in both the junior and senior divisions.
