Posted: Updated:

What a difference a visit can make. NASCAR driver Bobby Dale Earnhardt has announced he has decided to make West Virginia his residence as of March 5th. Earnhardt, from the famed Earnhardt racing family and part-owner of Earnhardt Carson Racing, spent a week in several West Virginia cities in February while meeting with his first sponsor, Chavela Simmons, owner and operator of ALL-N-ONE Pawn and the Drive-in Barbershop in Charleston.

After spending a week with a group of people who understand and appreciate auto racing, Earnhardt stated, "I was completely drawn to the state by the outdoor activities and attractions available in West Virginia as well as all the supportive and caring fans. I would be honored to run a completely themed West Virginia Car and represent West Virginia as I start my NASCAR career."

An exciting trip to the state Capitol, where Governor Earl Ray Tomblin, Speaker Rick Thompson and President Jeff Kessler welcomed Earnhardt to the state was truly an inspiring experience for the young racer. West Virginia has the largest per-capita NASCAR fan base of any state, and the Earnhardt Carson team feels Earnhardt's presence is a good fit for the Mountain State. "We are very excited to introduce Bobby Dale to all the NASCAR fans in West Virginia", said Earnhardt Carson's Marketing Representative Donnie Richardson.

Bobby Dale Earnhardt, along with West Virginia marketing representative Chavela Simmons, is currently exploring corporate and private sponsorship opportunities that will represent and promote West Virginia within the exciting sport of NASCAR.
