CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Front Porch Carolina Churned Ice Cream spokesman Dale Jarrett was inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame yesterday. Mooresville Ice Cream Company, maker of Front Porch, in congratulations and celebration of Dale Jarrett, will be launching a new limited-edition ice cream. As a reference to Dale's former car number, "Dale Jarrett's Flavor #88" is a creamy chocolate ice cream mixed with butter pecans. This flavor will be available exclusively at the Mooresville Ice Cream Parlor in Mooresville, NC.
"Our new Dale Jarrett's Flavor #88 flavor is very much a tribute to one of Dale's favorite combinations, as well as an ice cream that captures our love for the Carolinas and NASCAR," said Michael Werran, production manager at Mooresville Ice Cream Company and Front Porch.
The Mooresville Ice Cream Parlor will host an ice cream party in honor of Dale and his new flavor on July 9. NASCAR fans are invited to stop by to congratulate Dale and take photographs. Media can chat with Dale while enjoying NASCAR fare such as mini corn dogs and sliders and, of course, plenty of ice cream.
Dale says, "Besides family, racing and golf, ice cream is one of my all time favorites. It's an honor to have an ice cream made in my name for my induction into the Hall of Fame."
Dale is a 1999 NASCAR premier (now Sprint Cup) series champion and three-time Daytona 500 winner and one of the founding drivers of NASCAR Nationwide Series. He is currently an ESPN commentator and lives in the Carolinas. Dale Jarrett and father, Ned, are only the second "father/son" combination to be NASCAR Hall of Fame members.
