it's hard to believe that it's almost been 3 years since he died. i never cared much for him as a driver, but now that he is gone i sort of miss seeing him on the track every weekend.

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....

No probs Nyeff..

He is one of the drivers i remember watching over here in the UK.

This showed he had a real determination to drive,as he raced Hobby-class cars in and around his native Kannapolis, NC, working full-time by day, welding and mounting tires, and either racing or working on his cars by night. He financed his own effort, often having to borrow money to buy parts and pieces to run on the weekends, hoping to win enough to pay back the bank on Monday.

I think one of his great achievements was when he won the daytona 500 after well over 15 tries at it.I'm sure it was the only major he hadn't won.

I'll see if i have any more pics.

smirkley, that is a great picture.

Dale had finally done it all. All the races, all the tracks.

His last statement to the world was: I am in 3rd. 2 of my cars are in front of me. They will finish 1, 2.

He was blocking so someone else could win that race. I don't think it could have ended any other way. He had accomplished everything.

Long live #3. We will not forget.

Yes it is a good shot, and looking at the expression on his face, he knew it, well before he was known to be great.
