In Memoriam ~ Dale Earnhardt 4/29/51 ~ 2/18/01

Dale Earnhardt Shades

Twelve years ago today, in the last turn of the Daytona 500, Dale Earnhardt was involved in a multicar accident that took his life.

NASCAR hasn’t been the same since.

He won 76 races, 7 CHAMPIONSHIPS, and pissed off a lot of other drivers in the process like this…

It’s that racing style that earned him the nickname “The Intimidator.”

He was the face of the sport. He was loved as much as he was hated; depending who you were a fan of.

Since then, NASCAR has failed time and again to find the next face of the sport. I believe they think they’ve found just that driver. They’re wrong.

More on that later…

For now… Rest In Peace, Intimidator…
