I grew up a dale sr. fan and finally had the chance to take in the statue and plaza and hometown of my racing idol. It's a neat little town off the beaten path. Certainly worth checking in if your in the area

This statue is dedicate to Dale after his passing. There are other things around her to do also. And Dale's parents house are only a few blocks away and yes they still lived there where Dale grew up in that small house of 1200 sqft.

Wonderful place to relax, read a book, and if you are a race fan hang out with Dale! Beautiful park, well maintained in the heart of downtown Kannapolis. Near the Loop the Loop exercise path.

Well maintained and a fitting tribute to a great man. But there really isn't much to do other than take a photo with a statue.

Yes----some of the "stops" along the way are ONLY the location that Dale Sr.'s dad's garage that he worked at. There is NOT a building for you to venture through or any documentary about it......
