Dale Earnhardt Jr. to drive special No. 8 Tribute Concert Car at Talladega Saturday, April 5.
One-time appearance highlights inaugural concert.

Dale Earnhardt, Jr. will drive a No. 8 Dale Earnhardt Tribute Concert Chevrolet car in the Busch Series Aaron's 312 at the Talladega Superspeedway on Saturday, April 5. The one-time appearance of this specially designed car will highlight the inaugural Dale Earnhardt Tribute Concert, sponsored by longtime partner Kraft and its Nabisco Biscuit Division, to be held June 28th at Daytona International Speedway. In addition to its sponsorship of the concert, Kraft and its Nabisco brands made a $500,000 donation to the Dale Earnhardt Foundation.

Dale Jr. and Teresa Earnhardt unveiled the car at the NASCAR media day in February during which the concert's first performing artists were announced. They included Alabama, Brooks & Dunn, Kenny Chesney and Sheryl Crow. Since then, the Goo Goo Dolls and Hootie and the Blowfish have joined the all-star lineup. Tickets are on sale through www.daleearnhardtinc.com and www.ticketmaster.com or by calling the Ticketmaster outlets nationwide.

Proceeds from concert ticket sales will benefit the Dale Earnhardt Foundation, established by Teresa Earnhardt to support the causes Dale championed during his lifetime, including programs for children, education and wildlife preservation.
