Okay, let's see here.... I have followed this man since 1979.
Yup! Now that doesn't mean that I'm that old, 'cause I'm NOT!
My dad seemed to watch racing every Sunday,
and I wasn't allowed to turn the T.V.
so I figured, if you can't beat 'em, I may as well join 'em.

I watched the screen very closely to see who I should pick to pull for,
there was this one driver who was so determined to get up front.

Dale Earnhardt
The rest they say is HISTORY!!!

Car: No. 3 Chevrolet
Primary Sponsor: GM Goodwrench Service Plus
Owner: Richard Childress Racing
Crew Chief:  Kevin Hamlin


Earnhardt's seven NASCAR Winston Cup Series titles offer all the proof needed to those who question his place in history. His aggressive style has helped define a generation of drivers, those who run hard on Sunday then shake hands and exchange congratulations when all is said and done. from Nascar.com

Earnhardt was the first driver in the history of Nascar to win both the rookie of the year   award and the NASCAR Winston Cup Series championship title within the same year.
