NASCAR Collector Sells Rare Dale Earnhardt Uniform

NASCAR collector Charles Ross has decided to part with his incredible collection of racing memorabilia, and in this video he talks about one of the items being sold. This GM Goodwrench Plus uniform was worn by the legendary Earnhardt at the Rockingham race as well as in a special public service commercial that he filmed for the North Carolina highway patrol. The commercial capitalized on a bit of irony, as it was to bring awareness to the dangers of aggressive driving. Shortly after filming ended, Earnhardt personally autographed the uniform and donated it to a charity auction. Ross has partnered with the well-known automobilia auction website GoMotorBids.com to sell his massive array of memorabilia and Diecast collectibles.

Dale Earnhardt's 1997 Daytona 500 Crash Car Hood To Be Sold
NASCAR collector Charles Ross has decided to part with his incredible collection of racing memorabilia, and in this video he talks about one of the items being sold. This could potentially be the "Holy Grail" of all Dale Earnhardt collectibles. This is the ACTUAL hood from Earnhardt's 1997 Daytona 500 "Crash Car" Monte Carlo, which has been PERSONALLY AUTOGRAPHED by Richard Childress and (then) crew chief Larry McReynolds. The story of Earnhardt's 1997 Daytona "Crash Car" is one that truly personifies who Earnhardt was as a person and a racer: tough and determined. He never gave up - no matter how much the deck was stacked against him. After running with the leaders the entire race, Earnhardt had maneuvered his way into second place with only ten laps to go. He was racing hard with Jeff Gordon down the back straightaway when Gordon made a move to pass, taking the air off Earnhardt's spoiler. As he did so, Earnhardt got loose and slightly touched the wall. He quickly tried to recover, but Dale Jarrett had run up on him quickly, leaving no downforce on the #3 Monte Carlo's rear end (a slight tap may have been involved), and Earnhardt went into a slide. At almost 200 mph the car flipped onto its roof and skidded down the track. Amazingly, after contact with another car then the outside wall, the car somehow wound up on its wheels and slid into the infield. Earnhardt was being escorted to the ambulance when he realized that the car could be restarted. "I looked back over and said, 'Man, the wheels ain't knocked off the car yet,'" Earnhardt said. "So I went back over and told the guy in the car to fire it up. He hit the switch and it fired. I said, 'Give me my car back!'" With hundreds of thousands of fans going wild, The Intimidator refused medical attention, climbed back into his wounded race car and went on to finish the race five laps down in 31st place. This hood was displayed at Richard Childress Racing (RCR) before being purchased by private collector Charles Ross. It includes a Certificate of Authenticity from RCR. You've seen the replay of the Crash Car many times on highlight reels and tribute films and now you have the once-in-a-lifetime chance to add a piece of this car, one of Earnhardt's most legendary machines, to your own collection! Ross has partnered with the well-known automobilia auction website GoMotorBids.com to sell his massive array of memorabilia and Diecast collectibles.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Oreo Daytona Firesuit Up for Auction
NASCAR collector Charles Ross has decided to part with his incredible collection of racing memorabilia, and in this video he talks about one of the items being sold. So few authentic Dale Earnhardt Jr. firesuits ever get into the hands of collectors that any chance you may have to get one could be your last. But this particular firesuit stands head and shoulders above the others from his career. Dale Jr. was wearing this firesuit during the race weekend when he won the February 2002 Busch race at Daytona, the track that claimed his legendary father's life just a year earlier. And he did it driving a #3 Richard Childress Racing Monte Carlo, which marked the first time that the #3 Monte Carlo had returned to NASCAR competition since Dale Sr.'s passing. It was an emotional victory for Dale Jr., the Earnhardt family and the millions of fans watching or attending the race, and it set in motion a string of consecutive Busch Series wins at Daytona that we may never again see repeated. To top it off, this firesuit has been personally autographed by Dale Earnhardt Jr.! Ross has partnered with the well-known automobilia auction website GoMotorBids.com to sell his massive array of memorabilia and Diecast collectibles.
