TEN YEARS AGO TODAY: DALE EARNHARDT SR. THE
INTIMIDATOR. WON THE DAYTONA 500



SEVEN YEARS AGO TODAY DALE LOST HIS LIFE ON THE FINAL LAP OF THE FINAL TURN OF THE RACE.

Remembering No. 3: Dale Earnhardt Sr., the winningest driver at Daytona International Speedway with 34 victories, nabbed his only Daytona 500 in 1998 in his 20th attempt.


During Sunday's race, Sprint Cup members of the team he founded, Dale Earnhardt Inc., stood on the pit wall on Lap 3, holding up three fingers to honor the 10th anniversary of his win.




We were living in Lexington, KY in 1998 and was watching the 500 when Dale won. Talking about being exicited, that was an understatement. I wanted to call Allen Barnhart in Altoona Kansas who was a fan too. But he recorded the race and went to work and after the evening church services would go and watch the race. So I had towait to call Allen.




We were living in Lexington KY, in 2001 and following the morning service, a group of us went over to a members home and we watched the 500. We left that day we did not know Dale was killed. It was only that evening when we returned to our house and was watching the news that we learned that Dale and been killed in the wreck.
