I have thought about Dale SRs last race many times. I wish that he had not blocked any one that day. I grew up watching him race. I miss the old school of raceing.When they had men out there , and not a bunch of yes boys. Tony stewart is the only real true racer we have right now.Maybe things will get better.

Dale Sr is the best driver of all time. What happened at the 500 was just plain stupid on Vickers part. He took Jr and teammate Jimmie Johnson out at Talladega and nothing was said about that. Jr had a very bad day. Thats all so why blast him about. Nascar didn't blame either one so lets drop it.
NASCAR will never fault Jr for anything. It is NASCAR WWE for Jr.

Today is 8 years since Sr has been gone.:( A sad day indeed.

Congrats to Junior's pr guy, Mike Davis. He and his wife had a baby girl this morning. Virginia Grace Davis was born at 4:41 this morning and weighed six pounds, five ounces. Awwwww!!!!

Sort of like when Sr. wrecked cars in his way to win a race. Racing Deal
Sr. would have sucked if he didn't have front fenders and a front bumper on that s... box bo-tie he drove.
No Sr did it on purpose blowbag.

Fine tell me about Dale Sr. Compare the Brickyard 400s, Daytona 500s, and the road courses. History doesn't lie Sr was nothing. In his era he didn't even get the most wins.
I will say anything I want too about the Earnhardts. Sr only had 8 wins in his last 5 full seasons in cup. He was done for before the wreck that finished him off.
Many drivers can spin and win. FED EX should ship you old race tapes.
This is the dumbest thing I've ever heard someone say. Let me guess newbie.

Dale Earnhardt SR was the best race car driver We have ever seen.The Jeff Gordon that we watched race in 1996-2000 is gone. Iam not saying he is not going to win any more races or even another championship,Jeff will never even come close to Dale SR. Kyle Busch is about the only driver that might do it.He is still young. And the cars are alot safer now. Thanks to Dale SR.Today Makes 8 years he has been gone .I still miss seeing him race.
If Nascar never went to the 10 race "CHASE" format Jeff Gordon would now have six championships under his belt.

Basically you said that Jr. is a yes boy and not a real man. Correct.

That's real mature. Wrecking people on purpose. The guy was a dirty S.O.B. who had Nascar bending rules for him. Nascar loved the little intimadator handle giving to him, and used that to their advantage for years. Earnhardt then knew that he had to live up to this. But, no worries Nascar wouldn't punish little Dale and little Dick Childress.

Lets see 7 Championships says enough. It's not about wins its how you finish in the end. Look what happened to Busch. All those wins and he flaked out in the end. You are a rude person. yeah your right you have yer own opinion. Thats great. But not everyone will agree with the crap that you say about Sr.

Just cause Kyle got all those wins he still finished 10th. WOW thats a great finish for winning all those. He didn't even win in the truck or Busch/Nationwide series either. So until he wins a championship it doesn't look to me like he's doin much for nascar.

Yeah, he still gets the old 22 gal fuel cell and dang, if it wasn't for those nasty goodyear tires he wouldn't had to pit!! Maybe they'll let him use Hoosier tires from now on. I can't figure out why KB couldn't get out of the way fast enough since he gets the AV-gas. That stuff makes your car fly like a rocket!!

How much more Sr info do you people need. The history books can't say the whole story. I'll take a person with 14 Championships and third in total wins before any hick.

I beg to differ. Sr. may have been ONE of the best drivers of our time, but not THE best. I think Richard Petty may have something to say about that. First to 7 championships, 200 wins and all....
Either way, Sr.'s son will only ever be a footnote to that history, slightly better than Kyle Petty, ok maybe a bit more than slightly better, but hey Kyle won a few, too. Junior will never win a championship, in fact, he won't even make the Chase this year, mark my words. But, he will sell a buttload of jeans, shirts and diecast cars. That's something to be proud of.... and he always has his little redneck Neverland Ranch he built himself, so he can drown his sorrows in his little western bar...
