Hard to believe it’s been 100 years since Chevrolet pulled out their very first truck. Here’s Dale Earnhardt & Chevy Trucks 100 Yrs at TMS.
On December 16, 2017, Dale Earnhardt, Jr came out to Texas Motor Speedway to help celebrate 100 Years of Chevy Trucks.
If you didn’t know already, Dale Earnhardt, Jr has retired from race car driving. It’s only been a couple of weeks, but he’s definitely not slowing down. This is probably old news to many, but did want to let my readers know that the dude is going into the Broadcasting business.
There’s also one more reason Dale will not be slowing down anytime soon. He’s going to be a daddy for the first time. They are expecting early next year.
I was invited as media to come out and help celebrate Chevy Trucks turning 100 years old.

I guess I’m pretty lucky that I only live four miles from the Texas Motor Speedway. I drive through there almost every day. There’s so many awesome things happening there on a weekly basis. This time I got invited as media to attend Dale Earnhardt & Chevy Trucks 100 Yrs at TMS. I was fortunate to capture the full day of Dale talking about his retirement and his plans afterwards. We also got to see old Chevy trucks spelling 100. Hard to believe Chevy has been making trucks for 100 years.
Dales came driving up in one of his favorite Chevy Trucks. One journalist ask him if he had to get rid of all his Chevy vehicles, except for three, which three would he keep. He said, a yellow Corvette that him and his dad had together, a ’76 Luguna, and a ’66 Camaro. I had a 1978 Camaro that I wished I had kept. That was a cool car.
Dale Earnhardt & Chevy Trucks 100 Yrs at TMS was a great event. Here’s what Dale had to say about – What makes a Chevy guy? I think someone asked him that question. He said, passion, obsession, having a history with Chevy. loyal, owns a Chevy all his life, and born into it. Agree?
Well, I do believe this dude will make a great dad. He seems to have his heart in the right place. I look forward to listening to him broadcast and seeing pics of his new child. One thing you can expect is Dale being himself at his new broadcasting position. He told us that he will be himself, sarcasm and all.
