Arguably the most talented driver in the history of NASCAR Cup Series racing, Dale Earnhardt won his seventh series championship in 1994. He is the only driver in NASCAR's history to win the rookie of the year award (1979) and the series championship (1980) in successive seasons.
Earnhardt's hard-driving style earned him 76 series wins, $41,538,362 in career winnings and 25,706 laps led. He is the all-time race winner at Daytona International Speedway, with 29 wins in three different divisions. His emotional 1998 victory in the Daytona 500 came after years of late-race heartbreaks that kept him out of Victory Lane in the season-opening race.
Earnhardt is a five-time winner of the National Motorsports Press Association's Driver of the Year award (1980, '87, '90, '94, '86 -- co-winner with Tim Richmond). He is also a two time winner of the American Driver of the Year award (1987, '94). Dale Earnhardt tragically died in a last-lap wreck in the 2001 Daytona 500.

On your side review of Dale Junior's 210 Season so far --

causing his car to flip upside down on the backstretch. He walked away from
the wreck uninjured. His driver Danica Patrick was caught up in another
wreck before Earnhardt flipped. With 2 laps to go in the Daytona 500 the
following day, Earnhardt, Jr. was able to go from 10th to 2nd in 1 lap but
could not pass winner Jamie McMurray, and finished in second place. He was
unable to follow up on this strong performance the following week in
California when a broken axle left him with a 32nd-place finish, 12 laps
down. The next weekend in Las Vegas he qualified 4th for the Shelby
American, however after falling a lap down late in the race he could only
settle for a 16th place finish. Following another poor finish at Atlanta
settling for a 15th place finish. The next weekend at Bristol Dale Jr.
started 18th. He slowly made his way up the pace to 5th. Then a speeding
penalty on pit road sent him to the tail end of the longest line. He
charged his way up the pack to settle for a 7th place finish. He later
qualified 8th at Martinsville after qualifying was rained out. After facing
some handling problems, he ended up with a 15th place finish. Dale

race, Dale Earnhardt, Jr. had a splitter brace issue, that sent him to
mid-pack. He later finished 12th. After qualifying 9th in the Samsung
Mobile 500, Dale Jr. had a strong car for most of the race, and led 46
laps. However, the 88 slipped back from 3rd to finish 8th on the last
restart, after facing a handling issue, and later moved up to 7th in the
Sprint Cup points standings. Dale Earnhardt, Jr. was determined to get a
good finish at Talladega, and started 7th due to severe weather. Dale Jr.
made his presence known by running up front in the early stages of the
race, even leading 8 laps. Due to multiple green/white/checker attempts,
Dale Jr. slipped back on the final restart and finished 13th. Following
this, Earnhardt, Jr. qualified 25th for the Heath Calhoun 400 at Richmond.
During the race, Earnhardt, Jr. cut a tire after contact with Paul Menard
and Bobby Labonte. Earnhardt never recovered and finished 32nd three laps
down, and fell to 13th in the Sprint Cup standings. Dale Jr. didn't have
high hopes at Darlington the next week, stating that it would one day cause
him to quit racing in NASCAR. Dale Jr. qualified 19th, and although running
as high as 5th, Earnhardt, Jr. faced an ill-handling condition, causing him
to finish 18th, but move back up into the top 12 in points. On Friday
