During the 1997 Daytona 500 Dale Earnhardt gets into the wall, bumps Jeff Gordon and then gets hit by Dale Jarret. He gets sideways as a result and flips the car then gits hit while upside down by Ernie Irvan. Car is a mess. Last thing we see is Dale getting out of the #3 and getting in the ambulance. Come back from commercial and they show a graphic for cars out of the race. Dale is not on the list and the announcer must notice because you just hear a few second of silence. Then next thing we see is Dale back in the car on pit road and him barking out orders to his pit crew. meanwhile, the pit crew is taping parts of the car back on in order to satisfy NASCAR rules. Then we hear Dales explain how he wound up back in the car. Most men would have called it a day after going through such an accident.....Not Dale! What an amazing competitor he was! NASCAR will never be the same!
