Dale Earnhardt Jr. has set his sights on team ownership. Alongside his sister, Kelley Earnhardt Miller, he’s actively exploring opportunities to secure a spot in the NASCAR Cup Series garage. However, the steep prices of Charters present a significant hurdle.

In a recent post on X, Toby Christie has wrote, “@DaleJrwants to be a #NASCAR Cup team owner, but the price of Charters are too much for him personally because he wouldn’t want to flip it for a profit. If he makes the commitment, it’s for life. He and @EarnhardtKelley are, “Still at the table,” trying to land a Charter.”

The #8 has deep roots in NASCAR history. Dale Earnhardt Sr., Dale Jr.’s father, famously drove the #8 car during his early career. The number became synonymous with the Earnhardt legacy, representing grit, determination, and a relentless pursuit of victory.

After Dale Sr.’s tragic passing, the #8 shifted to other drivers and teams. However, Dale Jr. never forgot its significance. When the opportunity arose, he decided to reclaim the number—a tribute to his father’s enduring influence on the sport.

Reclaiming a trademark isn’t easy. Dale Jr. faced legal hurdles, negotiating with previous rights holders and navigating complex paperwork. His commitment paid off when he secured the #8 trademark, ensuring its return to the Earnhardt Jr.

For Dale Jr., this victory transcends legality. It’s a heartfelt connection to his father’s memory. The #8 represents more than a racing number; it symbolizes family, passion, and the indomitable spirit of NASCAR. He recently decided to take the trademark from his stepmother Terresa.

Dale Jr. plans to field a team under the #8 banner. Whether it’s in the Cup Series or another division, he aims to honor his father’s legacy by competing with the same intensity and dedication.
