The burial site of Dale Earnhardt Sr. is on the Earnhardt estate in Mooresville, North Carolina. As the monument is on private property, the public cannot visit the grave. In 2001, the family kept funeral arrangements and interment private, but some fans attended a memorial service in Charlotte, North Carolina.
A fence and a perimeter of evergreen trees obscure Earnhardt's burial site and monument from view. The gated entry opens to a walkway that leads to the monument. Expecting to visit the grave, fans flocked to Centergrove Lutheran Church Cemetery in Kannapolis, North Carolina, Earnhardt's hometown. Earnhardt's father is interred there, and the fans gathered around his grave to say their goodbyes.
