Considered by many to be the greatest driver in Nascar history, Dale Earnhardt won seven Cup titles, tying him with Richard Petty, for the most ever. He won 76 Cup races, placing him fourth behind Richard Petty, David Pearson, and Jeff Gordon. An aggressive, hard nosed driver, he had nicknames like "Ironhead," "Intimidator", and they were well deserved, as one driver once said, "The thing that scares me the most is that black 3 car rollin' up behind me". Dale died tragically in an accident at the Daytona 500 in February, 2001.

There will never be anyone as good as Dale Earnhardt was. He is and was the greatest racer of all time in what is today called the Nascar Sprint Cup Series. Back then it was called the Winston Cup Series. I just wish he could have lived long enough to retire and see his son be successful as well.
