Dale Earnhardt Jr. made his way to Panama City last week to help with Hurricane Michael relief efforts. News 13 has the exclusive from his trip helping Bay County get back on its feet.
Earnhardt and Mountain Dew have partnered with Team Rubicon – an organization that uses the skills and experiences of military veterans and first responders to serve communities impacted by disasters -to help with recovery.
“I don’t know if you have any kind of idea of what you’re gonna walk into, but it is what it is. You got two legs, two arms and everybody’s just doing whatever they physically can do,” said Earnhardt. “These guys are working really hard and you wanna get in there and make an impression and let them know that you’re not afraid to get in there and get your hands dirty and learn what they’re about, learn what they’re going through.”
