Jeffrey Earnhardt and Off Axis Paint, name a better duo — yeah, you can’t. In what has become a big-time tradition, Jeffrey Earnhardt unveiled his latest tribute helmet on Friday in a video released to Twitter.
The helmet that Earnhardt will wear this weekend in the Wawa 250 at Daytona International Speedway will feature an incredible airbrushed portrait of his famous grandfather — seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Dale Earnhardt — on the back of the helmet.
Noel McEwen of Off Axis Paint did the freehand airbrush portrait, as he has on all of Earnhardt’s past tribute helmets.
Just above the portrait of his famous grandfather is also a tribute to his grandmother Latane Key, who passed away last month. Check out this incredible work of art.
