Family Traveling The Dale Trail

The Kannapolis community is proud of its legacy as Dale Earnhardt’s hometown and proud, too, of its rich racing heritage. Since Dale’s tragic death at the Daytona 500 in 2001, thousands of fans continue to come here to remember him and to learn about his life. For that reason, we created The Dale Trail to help visitors find their way around, and to show how Dale and his family’s lives are imprinted on these streets and in surrounding areas.
