In this week's Graceland podcast, Elvis Presley Enterprises' Steven Gibbs features a special interview from SiriusXM's Elvis Radio with racing legend and Elvis fan Dale Earnhardt Jr. Earnhardt was honored to drive Elvis' recently restored 1973 Stutz Blackhawk III at an unveiling ceremony at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Earnhardt talks about the thrill of driving his life-long heroe's car, plus shares a little insight on his "Elvis room" and his wide collection of Elvis albums and vinyls. Fans can also learn more about the preservation process of Elvis' favorite car and the last one he drove through the gates of Graceland. Instead of taking on a full-restoration process, Elvis Presley Enterprises asked for the car to be returned to the condition it was in the last time Elvis drove it.
