Jeffrey Earnhardt honors grandfather Dale Earnhardt with helmet design
Xfinity Series driver Jeffrey Earnhardt is honoring the “GOAT” in his family with a helmet he’s debuting this weekend at Daytona International Speedway.
The “GOAT” - or “Greatest of All-Time” - is his grandfather, NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Earnhardt.
The helmet, which you can see below, bears an image of the seven-time Cup champion riding a horse while shirtless and wearing a cowboy hat.
Next to the image is the text, “Just a goat on his horse!”
Earnhardt will have the helmet today as he starts on the front row of the Xfinity Series season opener (2:30 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1). Earnhardt finished 15th.
It is the first of nine Xfinity races he’ll start for Joe Gibbs Racing this season.
