Taylor Earnhardt on Her Father Dale

Filed under: Dale Earnhardt 


The daughters of two American legends came together recently to raise money for their Father’s charitable foundations.

Dale Earnhardt’s daughter Taylor Earnhardt and John Wayne’s daughter Marissa Wayne Ditteaux were at the Stockyard in Fort Worth Texas to unveil the Dale & The Duke car.

Here are a few words from Taylor and Marissa.

Taylor Earnhardt said “To be able to continue both of their legends is a great thing.”

John Wayne’s daughter Marissa Wayne Ditteaux spoke about how they were both American icons. “We get to celebrate these men and their legacies, their causes. ”

The John Wayne Cancer Foundation has set about ‘To fight cancer around the world and find a cure.’

Sales from the project will benefit the Dale Earnhardt Foundation and the John Wayne Cancer foundation.

The Dale Earnhardt Foundation has set its mission as: ‘To Continue the Legend through charitable grants that sustain Dale’s lifelong commitment to education, children and Environment / Wildlife preservation.’

  8. Dale Sr. will always be remembered.
    To bad the government body of his home town
    were too greedy, and gave into Martha Stewart,taking down Earnhardt signage.
    (I hope they do a re-start.)
    By the way a old”Duke”movie is always a good picker-upper.

    God graced us with your fathers antics and driving escapades during his life time. I as a veteran, understand the commitment and sacrifice that you and your family struggled through during your fathers career. He was a man of few words but when he said something it must have been funny and or serious. Yet, I thank you for carring on his legiecy and dreams through his charity. God Bless You and let his blessings and grace be upon you and your family.
