Dale Earnhardt's Kids Split Marriage Gene
NASCAR fans got their first off season gossip shocker yesterday when 27-year-old Charlotte singer-songwriter Travis Powell, who's been dating Kelley Earnhardt for a few months, changed his relationship status on Facebook to "engaged." While there's been no public confirmation, Kelley was sporting a ring on that special finger at this morning's JR Motorsports press conference. The marriage would be the third for the eldest daughter of the late Dale Earnhardt, who himself was married three times.
Update: Maybe third time's not a charm after all. As of Feb. 28, Kelley's status is once again "single."
Meanwhile, Kelley's chronically bachelor-statused brother, Dale Earnhardt Jr., shows no signs of acquainting himself with an altar, despite allegedly heading into his second off season with the same woman. Like most who have gone before her, his current female companion has gone publicly unacknowledged and has still managed to earn disapproval of his fans, primarily due to her questionable marital status.
