In Memory of Dale Earnhardt Sr.

4312 ratings | 1257678 views
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

I wish the end would of been Jr’s win that year. So many moments for Dale that year... he was there the whole time.

Harvick took it to them two weeks later. I swear if dale didn’t die that team would have won it all that year. RCR and DEI has the cars to beat.

I haven't watched NASCAR since this guy I meant a lot to everybody. And something that day was stolen from all of us when I was a kid my father and I ran into him fishing on the Tennessee River what a great guy I remember he has his boat motor with no markings on it that was my first time ever seen a 300 Black Max on a bass boat.

I was in 1st grade and cried my eyes out that day. I had dale everything in my room.

Y'know, I didn't expect to cry during this. But as I saw Steve take that win for Dale for DEI, as well as his own shortcomings in the months following, I couldn't help but tear up. Dale Sr is a legend and will never be forgotten, and much like his son, had one hell of an eye for talent.

Dale Earnhardt was a sadistic asshole who loved crashing others cars. His death probably saved the lives of other drivers who he would have murdered.

It's upsetting that Dale Jr. had to watch his own father getting killed the way he did. And the way he ran back to see if he was alright is even more heartbreaking.

As a kid growing up in the 70's, I always hated the song, ''2001 Space Odyssey.'' But in Feb. of 2001, I watched Mike and Dale, Jr. finish 1 & 2 at the Daytona 500. Then we soon realized Dale Sr. was gone from this world. Then in June I lost my Grandfather. As if that wasn't enough already, on July 12th, 2001 I lost my Dad to suicide. Then 2 months later, the Sept. 11th, 2001 terrorist attack happened. ''2001'', the worst year of my life. I pray I never have another one like it. May God richly bless all those who lost loved-ones that awful year... 2001. And now I know why I always hated that damn song.

Every time I look back at these videos I'm like "Man. If only that guy was still here." But unfortunately, we can't fix the mistakes we've already made. This is one of the saddest moments in NASCAR history. But there will be one fact about him. You can't intimidate The Intimidator.

I haven't watched a race since Feb 2001, just now able to watch clips on YT. I'm so glad I got to see Dale Earnhardt race at Talladega more times than I can count. I miss him so much but I'm thankful everyday that I got to enjoy NASCAR & it was ALL because of him!!! RIP #3 DALE ❤ u are missed beyond belief ❤

What people don't know is he wasn't following safety protocol. Had he worn his belts and Hahn's device, he would be alive today. Either way, RIP the Greatest of all time, Dale Sr. He made the sport safer and overall a better place.

I was always told I could do whatever I want when I was older dale sr. Wanted to be a race car driver and he did that he thought he had a chance to win till the checkered flag waved and that’s why he’s a 7x champion
