Ralph Dale Earnhardt Jr. Wiki/Biography

Ralph Dale Earnhardt Jr. was born on 10 October 1974, in Kannapolis, North Carolina USA, and is a race car driver, radio personality, actor, as well as a voice actor. Dale Earnhardt’s father was the well-known NASCAR driver, Dale Sr., who was a seven-time winner of the Winston Cup Series and was also named Winston Cup Series Most Popular Driver, as well as one of NASCAR’s 50 Greatest Drivers, a career which Dale Jr. followed from 2000 until retiring from full-time racing at the end of the 2017 season..

A famous race car driver, just how rich is Dale Earnhardt, as of late 2017? Authoritative sources estimate that Dale’s net worth is over $400 million, largely coming from his career as a professional race car driver. As an example of his income, in 2013, Dale Jr. earned a base salary of $10 million, to which he added a sum of $2.9 million from his winnings, as well as $13 million from various sponsorships.

As Dale Jr, grew up in a family of professional race car drivers, it is not surprising that he took up the same path. Earnhardt began practising at the age of 17 with the help of his father, with whom he also partook in various sport events. Over the years, Earnhardt mastered his driving skills and was given an opportunity to drive in a Busch Series event. Following his father’s footsteps, Dale Jr. drove in the Busch Series in 1996 and ’97, eventually for his father’s team full-time in 1998, when he won the series, and again in the following year. In 1998, he made his first start in the Winston Cup Series at Motegi, Japan in exhibition race, then drove in five Winston Cup races in 1999, before competing full-time in the series in 2000,

He didn’t secure the title of the Rookie of the Year, but finished the year with two wins, including the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race. Shortly afterwards he was faced with a tragic event in his life; in 2001, Dale Sr. was killed in a crash during the Daytona 500 event, suffering a skull fracture which resulted in instantaneous death. Dale Earnhardt Jr. came back to compete in  races the following week after his father’s death, and later that same year won the EA Sports 500 event, certainly building his net worth.

Subsequently throughout his lengthy racing career, Dale Jr. won the Daytona 500 race in 2004 and 2014, among 26 NASCAR race victories, the last in 2015, and was named the Sprint Cup Series Most Popular Driver eleven times from 2003. His best finish in the Sprint championship was third in 2003. Twice he was side-lined for several races, suffering from concussion, which no doubt had an effect on his overall career results, and perhaps hastened his semi-retirement.

In addition to being a popular NASCAR driver, Dale Earnhardt has made several on-screen appearances as an actor, and featured in such films as Michael Bay’s “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” with Shia LaBeouf and Josh Duhamel, and “Herbie: Fully Loaded” with Lindsay Lohan. Dale Earnhardt is also notable for voicing several characters in the “Scarface: The World Is Yours” video game, an animated film called “Cars” and an episode of “Handy Manny”.

In his personal life, Dale Jr, married longtime girlfriend Amy Reimann on New Year’s Eve 2016; they are based in Lexington, North Carolina. He is an avid supporter of the Washington Redskins American Football team, but his interest in racing cars carries through to his collection of several wrecked during races, although just one of his own.

#Quote
1If I wasn't racing, I'd be working at my dad's Chevrolet dealership. It was only a couple of years ago that I was the fastest oil-change man in the place.
2I'm so happy to be a part of this team. We have a great unit, and that's what it takes. It takes a lot more than just a driver. The guys taught me a lot last season, and I'm sure I'll keep learning about racing for many years to come.
3I don't really think about carrying on the family racing name, I'm just so proud of my family and real proud to be involved with my father in racing. It's a good relationship. I'm proud of my father and grandfather and what they've done.
