Claws

Dale Earnhardt

Recommended Posts

Guys. I don't think we've ever discussed this here.

I really miss Dale. You would think after this many years the pain would go away. But I grew up with him and looked at him as a hero.

Am i the only one?

Surely some of you diehards feel the same way. He was the Man.

Coldnt stand him. But with that said was happy to see him win the Dayton 500 and was watching when he crashed. Would have to say right before that point I was rooting for DEI to sweep and him come in 3rd. Just didnt happen though. :(

Sure, I miss him. But people need to do like Dale Jr. said and just get over it already.

No.

People fail to realize just how special Earnhardt was, a true legend. 7x Cup Series Champion and the greatest NASCAR driver ever. You can just now start to see how loved and admired he truly was.

Do you think Dale Jr has won NASCAR's most popular driver award 10 years straight off his lack of accomplishments? By being a mediocre driver, 80+ race winless streaks, spanning 2.5 years? No, it's because of his last name; Earnhardt. The Intimidator is a legend, and his popularity lives on through his son.

My mom died when I was 14, perhaps I have a little different perspective, but I don't miss him at all.

He brought a lot of excitement to a sport that's lacking now, but personally I couldn't care less.

Jimmie is already considered one of the greatest of all time.

Chad Knaus doesn't get his due, Jimmie would be lucky to have one or two championships without Chad.

Jimmie is a 5 time champ right now and he isn't even 40 yet. He's second in points right now and it's a huge chance that he wins 6 in a row. Jimmie is in his prime right now and even when he isn't in his prime he's still better than 1/2 the field. He'll win 7 championships if not more.

Jimmy Johnson won't win another title. Besides, he isn't 1/2 the driver Dale was. Nascar has changed, it's all about who you drive for & Jimmy happens to drive for the most dominant team/owner of all-time.
