She holds a degree in commercial art and interior design. For her early education, she attended Bunker Hill High School in Claremont, North Carolina.

Tragically, Teresa’s joy of achieving her first Daytona 500 win as a team owner was overshadowed by the untimely passing of her husband, Dale Earnhardt, during that same race in 2001.

Moreover, Teresa and Dale also shared a professional relationship and worked together to manage Dale Earnhardt Inc. (DEI), which Dale founded in 1980.

Following Dale’s passing, she dedicated herself to upholding his legacy through the endeavors of the Dale Earnhardt Foundation.

Before Teresa, Dale was married twice. He was married to Latane Brown in 1968 and had a son named Kerry with her.

Teresa Earnhardt Lawsuit Against Her Stepson, Kerry Earnhardt

Kerry Earnhardt, the eldest son of the late Dale Earnhardt, was born in 1969 and is a stepson of Teresa Earnhardt.

In May 2016, the ex-wife of Dale filed a lawsuit against Kerry Earnhardt, accusing him of using the Earnhardt name in his business without her permission.

Kerry and his wife René intended to market homes and furniture under “The Earnhardt Collection.”

On July 27, 2017, Teresa achieved a significant legal victory when an appeal ruled in her favor. The U.S. Trademark Trial were required to further clarify their decision to allow Kerry’s use of the “Earnhardt Collection” name for his business.

During an episode of the Dale Jr. Download, Kerry entailed how his father’s death is affecting him personally. He added he doesn’t feel the same about Dale Earnhardt Inc. anymore. 

He mentioned that people admired his father’s common sense approach and his ability to clearly communicate his desires. However, after his father passed away, Teresa took over, and her way of communication differed significantly.

Also, he yelled at Teresa for not paying him for months and said that they breached the contract with him.
