Taylor Earnhardt Biography

Taylor Nicole Earnhardt is the daughter of 7 Time NASCAR Champion Dale Earnhardt and his wife Teresa Earnhardt.

Taylor Earnhardt was born on December 20, 1988.

Fame came early for Taylor Earnhardt. As an infant in her mother’s arms in 1990 Taylor and Teresa were watching as Dale was leading the Daytona 500 on the final lap. TV cameras zoomed in on the two as Dale appeared to be headed to his first victory in that race.

But Taylor Earnhardt’s joy quickly turned to sorrow when Dale cut a tire and his victory slipped away.

No. 3 Driven by Taylor Earnhardt

Taylor became the first Earnhardt to drive the Black No. 3 since her dad when she competed in the 2009 Goodwood Festival of Speed in England in 2009. She drove the Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet that Dale won his final race in at Talladega in 2000.

Taylor Earnhardt has been active in the Dale Earnhardt Foundation, a charity started by her father. She worked with the John Wayne Cancer foundation to create the Dale and the Duke Car, a special paint scheme race car featuring Dale Earnhardt and John Wayne.

In 2008 Taylor won a World Championship Equestrian Barrel Racing event in Texas.
