Uptown Charlotte will light up Tuesday night in honor of Dale Earnhardt

    The Charlotte skyline will illuminate with 45,730 blue LED lights atop the Duke Energy Building in honor of Dale Earnhardt on Feb. 18, 2014.
   The light presentation at the 786-foot-tall Duke Energy Building, as well as the annual Candlelight Tribute at Dale Earnhardt Inc. in Mooresville, N.C., is presented by The Dale Earnhardt Foundation.
