Dale Earnhardt Jr. made a pit stop on Thursday, October 1st at the Hall of Fame to surprise a special fan. The fan was 12 year old boy Austin Freeman who is currently battling cancer. Dale and Austin toured the building with Austin’s family and even got the chance to race against one another on our replica field on motorized coolers! Dale also surprised Austin with a signed pit crew jersey and race car toys. In addition, 2014 College Football Hall of Famer inductee Dave Butz stopped by to join in on the fun to surprise Dale Jr. since Dale is a huge Washington Redskins fan!
