It’s a sad day in the NASCAR community as they mourn the loss of Brenda Jackson.
Brenda Jackson, a longtime employee at JR Motorsports and mother of Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kelley Earnhardt Miller, has passed away following a battle with cancer. She was 65 years old.
According to JRMRacing.com, Jackson became an instant favorite to her friends and colleagues at JR Motorsports when she joined the company as an accounting specialist in 2004. Her sarcastic musings and straightforward approach injected a brand of humor at JR Motorsports that became part of its fabric as it grew into a full-time NASCAR racing operation in 2006 and a championship-winning organization in 2014.
She married NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Sr. in 1972.
Man, this tears me up! I'll never forget the time YRB and I go over to Dales to have a few and she just starts giving me the hardest time. We laughed, and then fast forward to Dale & Amys wedding where I got the pleasure to share a dance with her. Rest in peace love! https://t.co/qdcrZgp3WI
