Community holds candelight vigil for NASCAR legand Dale Earnhardt

NASCAR fans are gathering in Mooresville Thursday night to remember the legendary Dale Earnhardt.

Thursday, Feb. 18 marks 15 years since Earnhardt was killed in a violent crash during the Daytona 500. 

Every year since the tragic accident, fans of the 7-year NASCAR champion have honored him by attending a candlelight vigil at Dale Earnhardt Inc. 

Diehard Dale fans say the number of people who attend continues to dwindle every year. 

Thursday night's tribute includes candles and a guest book for fans outside the front door of Dale Earnhardt Inc. It's set to wrap up around 7 p.m.
