Dale Jr. Hood :: Nationwide Children's Hospital

Ride Along with Dale Jr. to Help Kids Everywhere!


Introducing Dale Jr.’s No. 88 Nationwide Children’s Hospital Chevy SS!


Thanks to our partners at Nationwide, our butterflies have never flown faster than they did on Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s No. 88 Nationwide Children's Hospital Chevrolet SS on July 8th, 2017 at Kentucky Speedway!  Thank you to our incredible donors whose names you see on the hood, hover over the hood image above to see their names and messages for Dale Jr.  

The hood was designed in part by Dale Jr. to showcase his favorite color orange and feature Nationwide Children’s Hospital’s butterflies. The “Ride with Dale Jr. to Help Kids Everywhere” hood program was unveiled with Dale Jr. and Nationwide last year and is a unique way to raise funds and awareness for Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

Please note: in order for the names to be actually legible on the replica die-cast cars, there were 13 versions created. Inscriptions were shortened to include the ‘family’ name. Replicating the exact inscriptions from the actual car would have rendered any font illegible to the eye and could not be manufactured.

Before the race Dale Jr. took a lap here at Nationwide Children’s with his Nationwide 88 team, participating in a kids-only news conference!
