He was my favorite driver,the only driver I ever rooted for for almost 20 years.(well dale jr when he came along). I was crushed when he died.
In fact I could not watch racing for the rest of year. It just was not the same without the black #3 flying down the track,riding up on someones
bumber,then threading the needle between 2 cars. Nobody could or can do that as a Dale could.
I was going to make a post about this,but I think I will keep here.
Oddly enough,I think racing has gotten better since Dales death. This past season was fantastic. The new kids are ripping up the track. Hell Kurt
Busch certainly brought some excitement and controversy to the track. Matt Kennseth,well what can I say,he had a fantastick season. I could not wait
for Sundays to come around,and its killing me waiting for Daytona.Psst AF....Its Jr's turn this year.
So what do ya'll think,has racing gotten better since Dale died? I think he almost had to die,for racing to grow and get as good as it has over the
past couple of years. He was such a dominating driver and person. Everyone else was in shadow. It seems like a lot more drivers are being
noticed,and they are putting the spolight on everybody.
At least that is what I think.
P.S TRD Thanks for posting those pics of Dale.....You made my day bro....
