Upon Dale Earnhardt’s tragic death, Benesch was commissioned to design a park and plaza in downtown Kannapolis, NC for the siting of a sculpture dedicated to Dale Earnhardt. Lush plantings, brick wall, benches and retaining walls provide a comfortable place to relax and remember the late NASCAR champion.
