Well, stop promoting Dale Earnhart then. He doesn't race anymore and the kids don't know about him. They are interested in the young drivers.

Nascar doesn't give any memorials to others who have been killed doing what they did best. What about Fireball Roberts,Joe Weatherly,Friday Hassler,etc,etc? It's always Dale,Dale,Dale. They are trying to lure the young fans in because they are running off the old ones.

“To contract new debts...”
