How Much is Teresa Earnhardt Worth?
Very often successful athletes, businessmen or musicians choose as wives some incredibly beautiful popular women – models, actresses or winners of beauty pageants. Just remember such popular couples as Donald Trump and Melanie Knauss, Carla Bruni and Nicolas Sarkozy, Miranda Kerr and Evan Spiegel.
But there are famous men with deep pockets, who chose as wives simple supportive ladies, who prefer to stay in their husband’s shadow.
Nee Teresa Houston was one of such women, when she met a famous NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt. The couple tied a knot in 1982 and after that Teresa began to support her husband’s career. Incredibly talented as a race car driver, Dale was quite helpless as a financier, but his wealth doubled with Teresa’s help.
The couple founded and owned Dale Earnhardt Incorporated (DEI). The company owns a NASCAR team. In addition it became popular through its merchandising goods.
In 2001 Dale Earnhardt tragically died in a car crash during Daytona 500 race. That very race brought his wife Teresa the first victory – the driver of her tem was the 1st to come.
After her husband’s death Teresa Earnhardt inherited DEI rights. Now she is the only woman in the world to own car racing team. The drivers for her team are Darrell Waltrip, Steve Park and Kenny Wallace to name a few.
She tries her best to develop her husband’s legacy. Dei under Teresa’s control celebrates Dale Earnhardt Day, which is appointed on the 29th of April, Dale’s birthday. In addition she opened a showroom, where her late husband’s fans can purchase the good, related to his name. She has also opened DEI campus to honor Dale Earnhardt’s memory. It can be visited from Wednesday to Saturday every week.
Her business activity brings Teresa a solid income. Currently her net worth is estimated at $50 million. But nothing is that simple. Teresa is involved into court battle with Dale Earnhardt Jr., the son of her late spouse from the previous marriage.
