Hmiel parts ways with DEI

Steve Hmiel has left his position as director of competition at Dale Earnhardt Inc.

“I have enjoyed a wonderful association with Dale Earnhardt Inc. over the past nine years,” said Hmiel, who has also served as spotter for Dale Earnhardt Jr.

“It is time for me to pursue other endeavors and re-establish new goals for myself. The management team at Dale Earnhardt Inc. has the company headed in the right direction and it has an exciting future as it continues to fulfill the legacy of Dale Earnhardt.”

Hmiel’s duties at DEI have been redistributed throughout the organization and his replacement will be named soon, the team said.
