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.
Hate him all ya want. Still a human beeing doing what he loved!
Please show more respect?
And he died of a basilar skull fracture.
He cracked the base of the skull leaking cerebral fluid. That alone isn't
an instant kill, but he also broke his neck in addition, so . . .
Use seatbelts! and HANS devices
Nationwide Series Daytona 2009
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — It took Tony Stewart just five hours to go
from brooding over his battered Daytona 500 car to celebrating a victory in
the season-opening NASCAR Nationwide Series race.
The two-time Cup champion held off a last-lap challenge from Kyle Busch to
win the Nationwide race Saturday at Daytona International Speedway.
"After this morning, it's great," said Stewart, who lost his Daytona 500
car and that of teammate Ryan Newman to wrecks during morning practice.
"This is a good way to rebound."
Stewart passed 23 cars in 11 laps to get back into contention after pitting
with 30 laps to go in the 120-lap Camping World 300, then hung onto the
lead as Busch, Carl Edwards and Clint Bowyer fought for position.
It was Stewart's fourth Daytona victory. He also won the second-tier
series' season opener last year in another late-race battle with Busch.
Stewart gave up the third spot to pit during a caution on lap 91, falling
far off the pace for the restart on lap 94.
Driving a Chevrolet for longtime friend Rick Hendrick, he charged to the
front, several times passing cars while sandwiched in the middle of
2009 Daytona 500
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Feb. 15, 2009) - Matt Kenseth powered his No. 17
DEWALT Ford to the front of the pack just in time to win the rain-shortened
51st annual Daytona 500-the first-ever Daytona 500 win for Roush Fenway
Kenseth, who pushed Kevin Harvick to his win in 2007, had the favor
returned as Harvick nudged him past then-leader Elliott Sadler on Lap 146.
Caution came out on the next lap for an accident on the backstretch and
continued until the 200-lap race was halted for rain on Lap 152. Shortly
thereafter, the race was called, and Kenseth was awarded the coveted Harley
J. Earl trophy. Harvick took second place, followed by A.J. Allmendinger,
Clint Bowyer and Sadler.
"It's going to be really wet out here because I'm crying like a baby," an
emotional Kenseth said. "If anybody's leading the Daytona 500 and tells you
they want it to restart, they're lying to you.
"Just to win a race after our [winless] year last year. I didn't know if I
was ever going to [win] again and then to pull off the Daytona 500-it's
just unbelievable. I'm just unbelievably thankful and humbled right now for
all the opportunities I've had."

Dale's last ride, including the onboard camera view, which I believe is not
shown anymore. Unfortunately, since there has been so much childish
bickering, swearing and name calling, I've disabled the ability to leave
comments, which is not something I like to do.
