Dale Earnhardt - NASCAR Racing Documentary Documentary on legendary race car driver Dale Earnhardt. Ralph Dale Earnhardt, Sr. (April 29, 1951 -- February 18, 2001) was an American race car driver and team owner, best known for his involvement in stock car racing for NASCAR. Earnhardt began his career in 1975 when he drove in the 1975 World 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway as part of the Winston Cup Series (later the Sprint Cup Series). Considered one of the best NASCAR drivers of all time, Earnhardt won a total of 76 races over the course of his career, including one Daytona 500 victory in 1998. He earned 7 NASCAR Winston Cup Championships, which is tied for the most all time with Richard Petty. His aggressive driving style earned him the nickname "The Intimidator". While driving in the 2001 Daytona 500, Earnhardt died of a basilar skull fracture in a last-lap crash at Daytona International Speedway on February 18, 2001. He has been inducted into numerous halls of fame, including the inaugural class of the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

In Memory of Dale Earnhardt Sr.
On February 18th, 2001 Dale Earnhardt sr. made the ultamite sacrifice when he lost his life. But it was a sacrifice that in my mind only enhanced his legacy. Because of that one fateful turn hundreds if not thousands of drivers can feel safer getting into their cars in their car of tomorrows, with their HAANS devices on, racing on a track with a S.A.F.E.R barrier, ect. Thank you Dale. I made a new tribute since my other one got taken off
