Taylor Earnhardt, representing the DEI equestrian division, will also be on hand and available for photos and autographs.

The morning autograph session will begin at 10 a.m. and be available to the first 300 fans in line to get a wristband starting at 8 a.m. The afternoon session will take place from 2-3 p.m. and will be open to everyone in attendance.

In order to "Continue the Legend" The Dale Earnhardt Foundation, will continue its book drive and will have the Dale Tribute Trailer on hand to accept new and slightly used books that will go to the Center of Hope Shelter in Charlotte. The Dale Earnhardt Foundation will also have hourly raffle drawings on Friday Oct. 10.

Fans in attendance may purchase a ticket for $10 for a chance to win DEI raced sheet metal and one lucky fan and friends will win lunch for four on Friday in DEI's exclusive Trophy Room.
