Congratulations to Taylor Earnhardt, the daughter and youngest child of seven-time NASCAR Cup champion Dale Earnhardt. Her mother, Theresa, is the co-owner of Earnhardt Ganassi Racing. Taylor is the only child of Dale and Theresa Earnhardt. She was married on Saturday night at the family estate in Mooresville, North Carolina to Brandon Samuel Putnam.

Earnhardt, 23, is the only one of her famous siblings to not be involved in the family business of racing. Her half-brother Dale Jr. is a driver and owner, half-sister Kelley is president and co-owner of JR Motorsports and half-brother Kerry is a former driver as well as active in the career of son Jeffrey.

Taylor instead has sought a career as a professional rodeo competitor. Per the wedding announcement, she also "devotes herself to supporting the Dale Earnhardt Foundation, a charitable organization that is dedicated to children, education and wildlife preservation. She is also the Director of Equestrian Development for Dale Earnhardt Incorporated. She is currently studying in equine business, reproduction and training to use in her future endeavors."

Putnam, 25, is the owner of Hi Tech Inc., a grading and trucking company in Charlotte. He also competes on rodeo competitions and is an avid hunter. In the wedding announcement it states, "He is the son of Sam and Julie Putnam of Charlotte, North Carolina. His father Sam is a retired landscape and grading company owner and CEO, and his mother Julie is an accountant and financial manager for several grading and land care companies in Charlotte, North Carolina."

Taylor arrived at the ceremony in a horse drawn carriage, the horse a childhood gift from her father. Memories of Dale Sr. filled the air as the couple rode from the wedding ceremony to their reception, they rode in style in a 1946 cherry red pickup truck that was from Dale Earnhardt's Classic Car Collection.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
