At just one year old, Kerry’s parents would divorce. He was eventually adopted by his stepfather and Kerry used a different surname for a time, since he barely saw his father until he was 16 years old. He dropped out of high school and worked at several odd jobs, including at the Cannon Mills and a Pizza Hut.

In the 1990s, Earnhardt started driving cars, and started to become interested in racing. He started racing street stocks in 1992, and would appear at various track races, and won the 1992 Rookie of the Year award. Two years later, he got Rookie of the Year Honors as he started on the NASCAR circuit. He would continue to race as a part of NASCAR for the next few years before joining the ARCA Racing Series in 2000 and 2001, winning four of his 11 starts. He also made his Winston Cup debut in 2000 as a part of Marcis Auto Racing, which included racing against his father Dale Earnhardt and half-brother Dale Earnhardt, Jr. The following year, Dale Sr. would be killed at Daytona.

Kerry would then become a part of the 2002 Busch Series, making it his only two full seasons in any of NASCAR’s top three series. He also tried his hand to qualify for the Winston Cup in 2002 and 2003, but failed to make the cut. In 2004, he started racing in Nextel Cup races, but with a highest finish in 17th place. During the same year, he also raced as a part of K&N Pro Series West. In 2005, he joined Billy Ballew Motorsports to race in the Craftsman Truck Series, then the following year he signed to ThorSport Racing and had his best finish at 11th. In 2007, he announced his retirement from competitive racing, working as a test driver for DEI. One of his latest endeavors is driving one of his father’s original cars, which is a No.3 1995 Chevrolet Monte Carlo.

For his personal life, it is known that Earnhardt married Rene in 1999 and they have a daughter. Kerry also has two sons from a previous marriage and has a stepdaughter. His children have also tried their hand at pursuing racing as a career. Earnhardt also has a grandson.
