KANNAPOLIS, N.C. - The hometown of the late Dale Earnhardt is taking down banners honoring the NASCAR superstar driver on the request of a billionaire developer who is bringing a mysterious visitor to Kannapolis.
The Salisbury Post reported Friday that California developer David Murdock's real estate company and the local visitors bureau requested the removal, partly because some flags were dirty and torn.
The visitor, whose identity hasn't been disclosed, will arrive Saturday. Murdock's company manages the North Carolina Research Center, a science research park in Kannapolis.
City Manager Mike Legg wrote in a July 18 memo to the city council that the "The Dale Trail" banners would be permanently removed.
I wonder who this mystery visitor is going to be??
