Tim Dugger (left) grew up a fan of Dale Earnhardt (right), who died in 2001.

With a loyal following among race fans, drivers and crew chiefs, country music artist Tim Dugger is no stranger to NASCAR circles.

Dugger, who just last fall performed a concert in the infield at Talladega Superspeedway, says in his bio on Country Music Television’s website that he "grew up in awe of Dale Earnhardt."

Clearly, he’s not exaggerating.
