Today if Dale Earnhardt was still living he would have been 56 years old. Today in 1951 one of the greatest Nascar drivers was born. Even when I didn't like Nascar if someone ask me my favorite driver I would say Dale Earnhardt. When I got into Nascar the first and only race that I watched of Dale racing was his last that he would ever race, because that day he was killed in a crash on the last lap. During the weeks after Dale's death, I watched everything about Nascar. When they had the memorial service and aired it on TV, I was thankful to have a day off from school to watch it.
You know I believe that if Dale had not died I would not be a Tony Stewart fan. Because Dale would still be around why pick someone else? But that second week I tuned in and seen a cocky driver who hit Jeff Gordon in the back end and I said that is my driver and that was Tony. So today on Dale's birthday I wanted to post a link to a tribute video about The Earnhardts. But it is mostly a tribute to Dale Earnhardt. We still miss you Dale! The Earnhardt Video
