Richard Childress wants to do their part to help relax coronavirus. A NASCAR owner online auction only hosted by Barrett-Jackson Dale Earnhardt's one of the signature racers will go on sale. Chevrolet, the first number 3 that Childress left for the first time in his collection, will earn donations from various Covid-19 relief efforts in the USA.
“During my career at NASCAR, I grew my personal memorabilia collection and I especially enjoyed the Dale Earnhardt cars in my collection because each of them has a unique history that brings back invaluable memories I won and competed with Dale,” told Childress Barrett-Jackson. “I have never left my collection with an Earnhardt Chevrolet, but a global pandemic is happening and people in our communities are suffering, it's time to do my best to help.”
In addition to being ruled by a legend, this particular Chevrolet had many important moments when it had many leading parts in the spotlight. Between 1996 and 1999, the car passed several of Bristol Motor Speedway, Dover International Speedway, Rockingham Speedway and Darlington Race Track. The net highlight was Rockingham, where Earnhardt captured the checkered flag in 1996.
“We are honored to help Richard Childress in this very important period in our country's history,” says Craig Jackson., Barrett-Jackson's president and CEO said in a statement. "This is not only a rare chance to have an original race car from the NASCAR collection, but also a chance to come together as Americans and help those affected by Covid-19."
The sales price, which will be donated 100 percent, will benefit frontline workers and first responders, and some of it. Feed America. The organization and many others are doing critical work during the epidemic. Especially feeding America supports food banks serving children who need regular meals nationwide.
Bidding on the Chevy race car will begin on Friday, May 8 and end on Saturday, May 16.
