There will be an Earnhardt in the Daytona 500 after all.
Jeffrey Earnhardt, grandson of seven-time Cup champion Dale Earnhardt Sr. and son of Kerry Earnhardt, will be the driver of StarCom Racing’s No. 00 Chevrolet Camaro, the team announced Tuesday.
The 28-year-old will stretch the family’s streak of competing in the “Great American Race” to 40 years.
Earnhardt will be sponsored by VRX Simulators in the race.
