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.

He started 1st in the Gatorade Duel #2 on Thursday, February 11, 2010. He finished 11th in the 2010 Budweiser Shootout after struggling with an ill-handling car for most of the race. On February 13, 2010 while running in the front of the pack at the Daytona Nationwide Series race, Earnhardt, Jr. was caught up in a multi-car wreck, 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.

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.

Please Remember Me!
THANKS FOR WATCHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MADE 100% BY ME!!!!! TO OUR FAMILY...DALE IS A HERO! Always a media favorite, in the weeks before the 2001 Daytona 500, Earnhardt stirred up controversy by skipping the annual fan and media preview event, drawing criticism from fellow driver Jimmy Spencer. Despite the early start, Speedweeks was a disappointment for Earnhardt, who had a long-running tradition of winning at least one race during the two-week season kick-off. Earnhardt finished second to Tony Stewart in the Budweiser Shootout. He was also denied victory in the Gatorade Twin 125 qualifying race in which he participated. Earnhardt had won every Twin 125 event he competed in during the 1990s, and was in 3rd place on the final lap in 2001 when Sterling Marlin pulled off a slingshot pass going down the backstretch. Taking it in stride, Earnhardt appeared relaxed and confident in television interviews on the morning of the 2001 Daytona 500. When the Daytona 500 started, Earnhardt showed early promise, leading the race and running up front for most of the event. A multi-car wreck late in the race eliminated several cars in spectacular fashion. Tony Stewart, who had beaten Earnhardt in the Budweiser Shootout, found his car tumbling wildly down the backstretch. As it tumbled, Earnhardt managed to weave his way through wrecked cars and come out unscathed. The race was stalled to facilitate cleanup of the track, and when the race resumed, it was Earnhardt and DEI drivers Earnhardt Jr. and Michael Waltrip who were running up front. As the laps wound down, Waltrip was leading Earnhardt Jr. and Earnhardt. On the front stretch coming to 3 laps to go, Sterling Marlin made contact with Earnhardt's left rear fender. Earnhardt's car wiggled but Dale kept control and he remained in third position. Marlin was known for having a fast car throughout the race, and Earnhardt repeatedly blocked his attempts at passing during the last few laps. With less than two laps remaining, Darrell Waltrip commented that "Sterling has beat the front end off of that old Dodge (Marlin's car) trying to get around Dale (Earnhardt)". Heading into Turn 3 on the last lap, Earnhardt was racing three wide with Marlin to his left and Schrader to his right. In the corner, Earnhardt's left rear fender made slight contact with Marlin's front bumper. Dale Earnhardt's crash in Turn 4 during the 2001 Daytona 500 Earnhardts car slid off the track's steep banking, onto the flat apron, and then turned sharply up the track toward the outside retaining wall. As the #3 car came up the track it collided with the #36 Pontiac driven by Ken Schrader. Schrader's car hit Earnhardt's car just behind the passenger door, causing both cars to run nose-first into the wall. Earnhardt's #3 hit at a critical angle at nearly 150 miles per hour. The right-rear wheel assembly broke off the car on impact. The hood pins severed and the hood flapped open, slamming against the windshield as the car slid slowly down the track. To most observers, the crash looked minor, and certainly not as dramatic as his famous 1996 wreck at Talladega, when Earnhardt's car was pelted several times in the roof and windshield as it rolled across the track. While Michael Waltrip raced toward the checkered flag to claim his first victory, with Earnhardt Jr. close behind, the cars of Earnhardt and Schrader slid off the track's asphalt banking toward the infield grass just inside of turn four. After climbing from his car, Schrader peered into Earnhardt's car, only to jump back and signal for EMTs. As medical crews converged upon the crash scene, NASCAR on FOX reporter Jeanne Zelasko asked Schrader about Earnhardt's condition. "I'm not a doctor, but I got the heck out of the way as soon as they got there," Schrader said solemnly. Earnhardt was taken to Halifax Medical Center by ambulance after being removed from his car. Hours later, at a press conference, NASCAR President Mike Helton made the formal announcement to the world saying, "Undoubtedly this is one of the toughest announcements I've personally had to make. After the accident in Turn 4 at the end of the Daytona 500, we've lost Dale Earnhardt." I DO NOT OWN PICTURES! I DO NOT OWN SONG! I DON'T OWN ANYTHING!!!!

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.
