RIP Mr. E. The greatest driver EVER- PERIOD. Sure- Petty had more wins, but he didnt have the competition that Earnhardt had. Earnhardt was AWSOME. Many hated him, but they all respected what he could do with a race-car. Speaking of race car, do you know if you spell that backwards, its race car? Sorta....lol

there used to be some sentences that one way were boring but the other were hilarious...if anyone can find that link it's worth sharing.

Since we are talking about Dale...he was a proponent of the SAFER walls....below is a story of a guy whose life may have been saved today because of the walls. It's a shame that we couldn't have been forward thinking enough to recognize Dale's point and place them at Daytona in time for his horrific crash.

I still am in shock on the loss of Dale Earnhardt.

Yep- I was in shock also Drbio. I wouldnt even consider myself a huge Nascar fan, but I was a huge Earnhardt fan. I even cried when I heard he was gone...

I remember exactly where I was, etc. I was sitting in my office and clicked on ESPN.com trying to see if he had broken his shoulder or something....I hit refresh and the headlines read "Earnhardt Killed at Daytona". I sat stunned for what seemed to be an hour. Then I cried. One of the worst feelings I have had in years and years. It still hurts. I keep looking for him to show up.....it just kills me.
