Race fan witnesses Earnhardt, Jr win

CADILLAC — What would your dying wish be if you could have anything?

That’s what Doris Rudolph asked her 54-year old brother on a long drive to lung cancer treatments last May.

After he revealed his wish, Doris, along with Mercy Hospice and the Dream Foundation, worked to make it come true.

On June 17, David Childs had front row seats at a NASCAR race where Dale Earnhardt Jr. was racing.

That was Childs’ dying wish — to see Earnhardt race.

With Childs in attendance, Dale Earnhardt, Jr. won his first NASCAR race in four years.
