The name Earnhardt is almost always near the top of any any list of racing families. Ralph, Dale, Dale Jr., Kelly and Kerry are a few of the family that have sat behind the wheel of a race car. In July of 1975 Dale was third in points at the Hickory Speedway behind Harry Gant and Tommy Houston when another Earnhardt made the headlines by entering an event at Hickory after recording six victories. What was the event and who entered it?

How about Kathy Earnhardt Oliver, Dale's sister, in the Powerpuff Derby race? Not only entered the race - but won it!

That would be correct Chase. Her other victories had been on dirt.

LOL, I knew you or Alex would probably answer the trivia. I started to ask you not to answer until 3 others had tried, just to keep it going longer. I'll give less clues on the next one. Hope you have as much fun with them as I do.
