Dubbed “Emma” by car builder and renowned body man Robert Gee, this car originally was the No. 15 Levi Garrett Chevrolet. Starting off her racing life as a Pontiac Ventura sponsored by Hendrick Honda, Emma was re-skinned as a Chevy Nova early in 1988. The car was retired at the end of that season and since has been returned to the condition in which it was raced. Named after Gee’s mother, Emma was driven by Ron Bouchard, Geoff Bodine, Dick Trickle, Tim Richmond, Ken Schrader and Glen Jarrett. It saw action at six racetracks in its five years of competition, with success at each stop: The Milwaukee (Wis.) Mile, Rockingham (N.C.) Speedway, Darlington (S.C.) Raceway, Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway, Dover (Del.) International Speedway and Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway. Dale Earnhardt Jr. drove a replica of Emma to pay tribute to Gee, his maternal grandfather, during his debut with Hendrick Motorsports at the Budweiser Shootout on Feb. 9, 2008. Earnhardt won the event, which was held at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway.
