GM donates to Dale Earnhardt Foundation
Daytona Beach, Florida – Brent Dewar, general manager of Chevrolet, presented a cheque for U.S.$688,300 to Teresa Earnhardt as a donation to The Dale Earnhardt Foundation. The contribution was generated by sales of Signature Series Monte Carlos honouring the late Dale Earnhardt, and current racer Dale Earnhardt Jr.
The foundation, created in 2002, is committed to carrying on the charitable causes Earnhardt supported during his lifetime, including education, children, the environment and wildlife preservation.
The 2004 Monte Carlo Intimidator SS was limited to 4,000 units, as a tribute to seven-time NASCAR champion Dale Earnhardt, while 2,883 2004 Dale Earnhardt Jr. Signature Series Monte Carlo SS were produced. Both models were based on the Monte Carlo Supercharged SS Coupe and were sold at select dealerships in the United States and Canada.
