You have to remember that Dale Earnhardt earned the respect of his fellow drivers. Even if you did not like
him, you did respect him. He knew his racing. He was
the voice of the drivers, he wanted what was best for all, and he did it in a manner that was respected by NASCAR. There are no drivers at this time who even come
close to what he had. Perhaps in time, but that voice is
certainly not Jeff Gordon.

hey catlacky, don't forget that Gordo had the luxury of being on a top notch team from the get-go, and Dale was with several teams that weren't before he hooked up with Childress!

man your all wrong penske racing is going to be the new king. With the two teamates Kurt Busch and Ryan Newman tearing up the feild and working together like they were in Daytona to be in the front, i think a lot of these teams should be worried about these next few races. team Penske is on a quick rise and will soon be on the top.

The truth of the matter is that NO ONE will ever replace Earnhardt he was one of a kind. I want to see Kevin leave RCR and go to that crappy Toyota. The only one that is worth a crap at RCR is Jeff Burton and I hope to see him in the chase.Hell i even like Clint Bowyer better than I like Harvick.The problem is there isnt a decent driver out there to replace Harvick until JR is ready to move over there. I think the best combo that i would like to see at RCR would be Bowyer and Harvick gone and replaced with Jr and Matt Kenseth. I think they would get along great with Burton and if RCR wanted to start a fourth team (which they could possibly do with Jr bringing Bud to RCR and having Jack Daniels, GM Goodwrench, and Cingular and have the #3,30,31,33 instead of the 07 and 29)i would like to see Truex get that fourth car but thats just a thought. i think they would give Hendrick and Roush a run for their money.

Dale Earnhardt, until he was killed in Daytona, was one of the dirtiest drivers the sport has ever seen. I know the truth hurts, and I know some of you will whine about what I'm saying, but it's the truth. He routinely spun other drivers out of his way. That's bad enough on the short tracks, but on a super speedway he could have killed someone. I hate that he's dead. I wish he were alive and still racing. He pi$$ed me off with his reckless and stupid bs on any number of occasions, but I miss seeing him race. What angers me so much about him is that he was too good a driver to have to resort to those tactics, but he did it anyway. If I had his driving talent, I sure wouldn't have wrecked other drivers and endangered them on purpose. Fae and away the best NASCAR driver of all time (to date) was Richard Petty, NOT Dale Earnhardt. Dale was a world class race driver, but Petty was and is the King. Kurt Bush and the rest of these new crybabies aren't worthy of washing Petty's jockstrap. Kitt form Tulsa OK, YOU'RE the idiot, you idiot. Get a clue, dumba$$.
