Kannapolis city workers removed The Dale Trail flag on Dale Earnhardt Boulevard on Thursday. It was expected to take all day to remove the 100 flags from the poles. The banners along with a statue in Cannon Village honor the town's most famous native, Dale Earnhardt, who died in a last lap wreck in the Daytona 500 in 2001. Dale Earnhardt Inc., founded by the driver before his death, is located in Mooresville on Mooresville Road, which the state changed from N.C. 136 to N.C. 3 in his honor.
