Jeffrey Earnhardt visits AIDB

TALLADEGA, AL. –  The students at Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind's (AIDB) Alabama School for the Blind and Alabama School for the Deaf got a special visit Friday.  Jeffrey Earnhardt, son of Kerry Earnhardt and grandson of the late racing legend Dale Earnhardt, Sr., visited both campuses to promote fire safety during National Fire Safety Month. 

Accompanied by members of the Talladega Fire Department and International Motorsports Hall of Fame staff, Earnhardt spent all morning on the two AIDB campuses signing autographs, posing for photographs and answering student questions.  Although fire safety was the main topic, none of the students could resist checking out his Nationwide series car, the Talladega Superspeedway's Dodge Charger Pace Car and a City of Talladega Fire Engine.  Students also received a ticket to come watch Earnhardt compete in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Mountain Dew 250 fueled by Fred's race on October 30th!
