All six Richard Childress Racing entries in this weekend’s NASCAR races at Pocono Raceway and Texas Motor Speedway will carry decals honoring the memory of long-time RCR/ECR Engines employee Tommy Lee “Sy” Earnhardt.
Earnhardt, 63, passed away June 2, 2012, at his home in North Carolina after a long illness. He had been an engine assembler for RCR/ECR Engines since November 1998. His NASCAR engine building career included stops at Benfield Racing, Mike Curb Racing, Stavola Bros/Bobby Allison, and Cale Yarborough Motorsports. Sy also was the owner of Firehouse Racing Engines, which built late model stock car engines.
