I grew up a dale sr. fan and finally had the chance to take in the statue and plaza and hometown of my racing idol. It's a neat little town off the beaten path. Certainly worth checking in if your in the area

This statue is dedicate to Dale after his passing. There are other things around her to do also. And Dale's parents house are only a few blocks away and yes they still lived there where Dale grew up in that small house of 1200 sqft.

Wonderful place to relax, read a book, and if you are a race fan hang out with Dale! Beautiful park, well maintained in the heart of downtown Kannapolis. Near the Loop the Loop exercise path.

This self guided tour lets you explore the area and sites where Dale Sr and family grew up. Besides the cost of fuel its pretty much free! Cool way to spend a day and see the sites where a true racing legend was born and raised.

People told me to go see this. Not sure why...I don't even like Nascar but they told me to visit it anyway. There is nothing else this town really has to offer so I went. In my opinion don't go out of your way to visit, instead just visit Charlotte's Nascar museum. Unless you want a picture with the statue.

If you love Nascar, and Dale Earnhardt, than this is the trail for you. It tells his story from start to finish. Dale Earnhardt helped put the small town of Kannapolis, NC on the map. This town is very proud of the fact that this was/is Dale Earnhardt's hometown. My favorite is the brass statue in town...beautiful!

Well maintained and a fitting tribute to a great man. But there really isn't much to do other than take a photo with a statue.
