The more stories we hear from drivers & owners themselves about Dale Sr., the more one can be convinced that Dale Sr. really was the best driver of that entire era, hands down. To hear Dale Jarrett say: "Dale only took 2 tires, and his car was handling SO bad, he was literally steering the wheel to the right in the turns". ( he continues: ) "No one else could've even finished the race in that car, they would've wrecked, the way that car was handling so poorly, yet Dale was still leading the race"........end quote. Story after story like this. How much more proof does anyone need. Now imagine Earnhardt's car handling & running as good as the better cars in the field, and it's easy to see why he won 7 championships. The sad part is: Earnhardt & Childress had everything SO worked out before the beginning of the 2001 season, that both were absolutely convinced that they were going to win an 8th championship that year........but of course terrible fate put a stop to the "trifecta" that Dale was shooting for: 1st and 2nd place for his own 2 cars, and then him coming in 3rd. THAT is a dream come true. You can bet the farm Dale Sr. was one HAPPY & CONTENT man just before that fateful crash took his life.

Does anyone think Dale is a spitting image of Ned.

DJ is a class act for sure.

It's unfortunate what happened to Davey but it was that tragedy that led to Dale getting the opportunity too drive for Robert Yates racing because Joe Gibbs was a good opportunity but he would have had the same success that he eventually had with Robert if he stayed with Joe

I worked for a company that put Dale Jarrett's heating and air conditioning, into his new home on Lake Hickory back in the early 90's when his career took off. He would come by the job site regularly, he wouldn't even acknowledge any of the workers on the job even if you said hello to him he was a real dick, nobody liked him that worked on that job.

Dale Jarrett is looking more like his father as the years go on.

Dale Jarrrett going over to JGR back in 92 was the best move of his career! Granted he did win a few races with the Wood Brothers but clearly they were no longer a top tier organization by the late 80's, they were still competitive but never really championship caliper. DJ's time at JGR allowed him to grow as a driver which led him to sign with Robert Yates racing, win a bunch of races and his 99 Cup Championship.

Don't let good ol' Dale Jarrett fool you. History has shown he would jump ship in a New York minute.

Hey its good to see a disclaimer for comments unfortunately a large majority of people in this world if mostly negative and feel they need to dump that negativity on the comment area,with out any idea of how to be a constructive complainer or decent about some thing they don't like....comment s its not complaints,customer service is closed at the moment and until further notice....thank u very much.
Kellie Nicole Brooks Schettino (1 month ago)

I was at that race. 12 year old kid. Kyle Petty had that race won until Bobby Hillin Jr clobbered him at the start finish line. That was also the race Rusty had that major flip on the backstretch

You want the definition of class, just look to Ned and Dale Jarrett

NASCAR was classier back then.

One of my favorite guys was DJ, but I was always an Earnhardt fan so I could not openly root for him on race days.
evan wallace (1 month ago)
I met Ned at the 2001 bud shootout he passed us on a golf cart heading to his motorcoach outside of a fenced area so I waited for him to come out and I'll never forget my experience with him I was 12 at the time and he came out and I said Mr Jarrett can I shake your hand and he couldnt wait to come shake my hand and came to talk to me and my friend he talked with us for 10 minutes about everything except racing and before he left he said hang on a min he went inside and signed pictures of himself for us. By far the nicest and most genuine person I've ever met

For just once in my life I want to see and hear a NASCAR driver properly use 'good' and 'well'.

Dale Jarrett and Todd Parrott with the #88 Quality care Ford , that was a Great team and a car you knew you'd have to beat every race.
Ethan Weeter (1 month ago)
The 88 was new, but the 28 had been around for a while and that is basically the team he took over. Robert Yates had been in NASCAR for more time than Joe Gibbs had.
brian cox (1 month ago)
I think I was 9 years old when DJ started out in the 88 car. NASCAR was such a HUGE part of my childhood... and DJ was MY driver! I had everything from hats and t-shirts to cereal boxes with DJ on them. I still have some of that stuff. Not very often to you come across people like DJ that have such overwhelming confidence on the inside but you would never know by just talking to them....so humble!

In 1996, that 88 team was as new as the #18 car Dale Jarrett entered in 1992.

When King Richard was finishing up, I needed a new driver to cheer for. Dale beating Dale Sr with his dad in the box cheering for him settled who that would be.

I will never forget DJ's Daytona 500 win as long as I live even though I was only ten years old. I was a Dale Earnhardt fan. My brother was at Dale Jarrett fan. On the last lap him and I were both yelling at the TV cheering our drivers on. And then there was Ned Jarrett's commentary. That commentary made that race stick forever in my mind. As I recall Ned Jarrett said that he apologized to Earnhardt after the race for his commentary. Good times from when racing was racing. 😎
Ethan Weeter (1 month ago)
Ned apologizes directly to Dale, and Dale said “it is fine, I am a daddy too.”😅
Kevin Lesch (1 month ago)
I must have been 15 or 16 and your right about Ned's commentary sticking with you. I wasn't a Jarrett fan or an Earnhardt fan but for some reason I think that race made me a NASCAR fan! I later became a Jarrett fan and learned to respect Earnhardt.

Moving from Yates to MWR wasn't a good call. But I guess it doesn't matter. You are a legend
George Fonda (1 month ago)
@Michael Marburger I was going to go with Logano after Jr retired but he blocked him out of a chance of a last win at Talladega so I just pull for anyone but Kyle Busch
Michael Marburger (1 month ago)
@George Fonda Hard to say who my favorite driver currently is. A lot of drivers I really liked have retired such as Dale Jr., Gordon, Stewart, and Kenseth. I have admired the driving styles of Kevin Harvick and Brad Keselowski, but neither one is having stellar years in 2019. I am not a fan of his but like the driving style of Kyle Busch.
George Fonda (1 month ago)
@Michael Marburger yeah well he should've said going from Yates to waltrip was stupid so I didn't have to lol. Also I said he's a legend so I wasn't totally hating just keeping it real yo. Side note who's your current driver?
Michael Marburger (1 month ago)
He said in this bit that he was all about taking chances in his career. He took a chance by going with Gibbs and it paid off. He took a chance going from Gibbs to Yates and it paid off. He took another chance with the new MWR team and it didn't do so well. 2 out of 3 ain't bad. In defense of his career, during THAT time there were a lot (and probably more than any other period in NASCAR's top series) of young talented drivers making it tothat top level of the sport.
