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. You can get more information about this item (plus thousands more) by visiting GoMotorBids.com.

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





Dale Earnhardt Daytona 500 Victory
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.
