Ive been a Jarrett fan since 1991 back when he started driving for Joe Gibbs in the 18 car. It was a real joy to follow him through his career which was pretty decent as he won some pretty big races including 3 Daytona 500's. I was lucky enough to meet Dale and Ned back in the day and there are no two nicer guys in the world! He gave the other Dale a run for his money!

I was there for that! Being a lifelong DJ fan (born in 94), it was bittersweet. I still miss seeing DJ on the track.

@kornnut43 I guess what I'm trying to say is that, in our fierce passion for the sport (which comes with bashing drivers, something I do a lot with the Busch brothers, lol), we tend to forget that within the sport are honestly good and talented athletes - the Busch brothers included, as much as some would like to argue.
Some day they won't be around, and we'll wish for the days they were. Such is the cycle of NASCAR. :)

That's the damn shame about this sport... I mean, it's a shame, but it's a part of it. Also, in a weird way, it's a part of life.
What the hell am I talking about?
Well, growing up as a Jeff Gordon fan, I had to pull against (i.e. not *hate*, just pull against) the regulars... Mark Martin, Dale Jarrett, Dale Earnhardt, etc.. As I grew into my 20's, these guys got older, and I realized it was never anything against them, and I felt bad for cheering against them all these years... (cont'd)

No one can ever hate Dale Jarrett, EVER!!! If you do, you can go to hell.
