Hard to watch without tearing up. They interview every person involved that day.

Is the a different program than what they were showing on speed or is it the same??

The feature they played on speed was also really good and emotional as well .. i kinda over looked how hard it was on schrader but i couldn't imagine being the 1st guy to drop down dales window net and seeing what he saw.

It looked like such an innocent wreck. Still can't believe that killed him.

Was it speculation or truth about his seatbeat being mounted incorrectly? ? Which ended up being a big contributing factor?? I heard both the people at simpson ( which is now impact ) and nascar pointing fingers at each other

On a side note it was cool to see Michael waltrip get that truck win last night .. ten years to the day and in a truck that payed honor to dale.

Yeah I watched the truck race and it was cool seeing him get the win and how emotional he was. He drove one hell of a last lap and pulled out and passed exiting turn 4.

Earnhardt liked his belts a certain way and wore a helmet without a visor. No one had the balls to tell him otherwise.

that's what I thought too...but they said it had to do alot with the fact that he hit the wall and then was hit on the side so close to each other that it twisted him sideways.

That's what I always heard too...that the hit in the passenger side moved him so that when he hit the wall it moved his head more than it would have otherwise.

That ESPN piece was good... this happened back when I watched a lot of NASCAR and was watching that race.

I've watched most of this race today... it's still pretty meh... I bet Dale Sr. would still be out there banging these young guys in the wall. I would have loved to hear what he had to say about these young punks like the Bush bros and others.
