Didn’t get a chance to watch the legendary Dale Earnhardt Jr. when he recently raced in November at the Florence Motor Speedway in South Carolina? Well, lucky for you because Earnhardt will be back behind the wheel this February.
Earnhardt will once again be on the track in Florence racing a late model stock car for the IceBreaker event which will officially start the 2023 season from February 10-11.
Similar to the South Carolina 400, fans will once again see Earnhardt’s car sporting the special “Mom N’ Pops” throwback scheme echoing the type of cars he raced earlier in his career.
“IceBreaker. Here we come,” tweeted Earnhardt from his official Twitter account on Thursday.

Fans have enjoyed seeing him back on the track almost as much as he’s been to be back behind the wheel. Last year, he raced late model stock cars at both the North Wilkesboro Speedway as well as Florence.
“We’ll try to get back,” said Earnhardt in an interview with FloRacing in regards to him finishing ninth in Florence. “We’ll see when we can come run another one.”
Earlier in January of this year, Earnhardt flexed his entrepreneurial spirit by announcing that he had become an official co-owner, along with other racing personalities such as Jeff Burton, Kevin Harvick, and Justin Marks in the Solid Rock Carriers CARS Tour.
“This is a team come true for me,” said Earnhardt said at the time. “I’m a huge fan of the CARS Tour and local short-track racing. The competition, the tracks, and the drivers are some of the best around. These regional series are vital to the quality of racing you see at the top level. Jack (McNelly, CARS Tour founder) has done a tremendous job establishing the CARS Tour as a preeminent series, and I’m thrilled to be part of its future.”
