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
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
"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. You can get more information about this item (plus thousands

Bizarre NASCAR Finish~ Road America 6.25.11
Reed Sorenson claimed his first Nationwide Series win in nearly four years
after prevailing in a very confusing finish in Saturday's Bucyrus 200 at
The race featured three green-white-checkered attempts for several wrecks
in the closing laps. Sorenson's Turner Motorsports teammate, Justin
Allgaier, held the lead on the final lap, but after the caution flag waved
for an incident involving Aric Almirola, Allgaier ran out of fuel and
stalled on the lengthy 4.048-mile road course.
Ron Fellows then passed Sorenson, and it appeared at first that Fellows
took the lead. But NASCAR reviewed the finish until several minutes after
the conclusion of the race. NASCAR determined Fellows moved ahead of
Sorenson when the yellow flag was in sight, and therefore, awarded the
victory to Sorenson.
It was Sorenson's fourth career win in the series but his first since July
2007 at Gateway International Raceway.
"I knew it was going to be close on gas for all of us, and I was just able
to make it at the end," Sorenson said. "We had a good car all day, but not
a winning car, but good enough to make it at the end."
Michael McDowell dominated most of the race and led in the closing laps
before an accident involving newcomer Doug Harrington forced the first
two-lap overtime attempt.
After the first of the three green-white-checkered restarts, Jacques
Villeneuve, driving the No.22 Dodge in place of Brad Keselowski, dove to
the inside of the track and made contact with Brian Scott. Villeneuve then
bumped into Max Papis and sent Papis into the gravel before he hit the
During the second g-w-c attempt, Allgaier chased down McDowell for the
lead. McDowell overshot one of the corners, allowing Allgaier to slip by
and take the lead for the first time in the race.
After McDowell ran off course, a three-car wreck involving Steve Wallace,
Eric McClure and Alex Kennedy set up the third and final overtime finish.
"I thought we had won it," said Allgaier, who ended up finishing 19th.
"When the caution came out, I was pretty sure we had won it, but we ran out
Fellows finished second in this race for the second year in a row.
Villeneuve bounced back from a penalty midway through the race to finish
third. NASCAR penalized Villeneuve after he changed his lane prior to a
restart. He was running second to McDowell at the time.
When the race ended, Papis pulled up next to Villeneuve on pit road to
express his displeasure. Papis finished two laps down in 23rd.
