NASCAR team owner Richard Childress is auctioning off one of racing legend Dale Earnhardt’s cars to raise money for coronavirus relief efforts. This is the first time Childress has sold anything from his personal collection.
Richard Childress tweeted Friday: that parting with one of his cars is “a small sacrifice” for him to make.
All proceeds will go to Coronavirus relief efforts.
Earnhardt died in a crash during the last lap of the Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway in 2001.

The listings will be update and added to often, as there are thousands of items he is auctioning off. Which car will be auctioned is still unknown.
From the Ebay listings page:
Legendary NASCAR team owner Richard Childress has launched an auction and sale of memorabilia and other items to benefit national and local COVID-19 relief efforts.
The auction and sale include thousands of rare, hard-to-find and exclusive items from Richard Childress’ 50+ years in NASCAR. A variety of national and local causes will benefit from the auction and sale, with Childress making a commitment to provide support to national and local first responders and front-line workers in need of personal protection equipment.
A portion of proceeds will also benefit Feeding America. Childress’ personal memorabilia collection includes rare and hard-to-find items, including pre-production models of diecasts, some of which never went into production.
In addition to items from the RCR family of drivers, the collection includes memorabilia from other well-known drivers from NASCAR and other forms of motorsports. Additional items will be added to the auction periodically.
