Rest In Peace Dale Sr.

Rest In Peace Dale Sr.

#3 Forever / 40 Years of Continued Earnhardt Legacy/ #LegendsNEVERDie

Rest In Peace Dale Sr.  #NASCAR

As NASCAR returns to Daytona, NASCAR Race Mom has to take a moment to reflect on Dale Earnhardt, Sr.

Dale Earnhardt, Sr. posted a track record 34 victories over 21 seasons and was without question Daytona’s dominant driver of the 1980s and 1990s. Behind the wheel of his iconic, Richard Childress-owned black No. 3 Chevrolet, Dale won at least once a season for 10 consecutive years from 1990 and 1999, including the 1998 Daytona 500.

This legend died at the young age of forty-nine following a final lap accident in the February 18, 2001 Daytona 500.

"Honesty I don’t even think about it when the anniversary of dads passing comes annually. He lived so hard and fast. His life was so grand, the date never registers with me for some reason. But I see the comments in my timeline and they are appreciated. #LegendsNEVERDie" Dale Jr. (via twitter)

Dale Sr. & Dale Jr. #NASCARToday, Dale Jr., son of this great seven-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion is one of NASCAR Race Mom’s favorite drivers for his skills both on and off the race track. His daddy taught him well.

NRM was gloomy to see Dale Jr. retire from full-time on-track competition; but super excited to see what 2018 brings to his JR Motorsports organization.

Additionally, the Earnhardt name will be represented by grandson Jeffrey. He currently competes full-time in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, driving the No. 00 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 for StarCom Racing.

Today, and every day, we remember you, the Intimidator. 

Rest In Peace Dale Sr.
