Wrong, Dale Sr. was a legend in his sport and when he died he left a huge void in the sport. It would be like if Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky, Babe Ruth, Joe Montana or what ever superstar of their sport died on their main stage event. Pretty sure if would be a big f*cking deal.

He was an embassador of Auto racing, and one of the greatest drivers ever. You may not like or respect the sport but you better damn well respect the dead. You may not have liked Dale, but god forbid one of your precious Chiefs gets hurt, not even killed, you would be all up in arms if someone said one bad thing about it.

Is their car a memorial for that person? The windshield? Their driving experience? It doesn't make sense to me. Is it just something they thought would be nice to have stenciled in, and never really thought about the meaning?

Not a Nascar site. And moreover, it's a Chiefs site that is anti Nascar for the most part.

So yea, we would be pissed if a Chiefs player died, but don't really give a rip about Dale Earnhardt. If you're looking for Dale sympathy, you may be looking in the wrong place.

That was his profession, same as the others you mentioned. They chose to do what they loved. They were all pro's at it. Doesn't make it anything less.

Nascar had safety mesaures and Dale Sr always came thru in many crashes. This time he didn't and it shocked the sports nation, except the assholes who disliked Nascar.

They did, but Earnhardt's death and the publicity of it prompted more and better ones. That's what it took, unfortunately. Three, maybe four, other drivers died in crashes in NASCAR's top three divisions within the roughly 18 months preceeding Earnhardt's. In the five years since, that number is zero.

This coming from someone who routes for John Lynch, who goes 180 mph head first into a tackle. When he breaks his neck and can never play again or, God Forbid, dies on the field don't come to me for sympathy.

Unofficial Dale Earnhardt Museum Destroyed by Hurricane




Five Dale Earnhardt banners and flags were blown off of the Diggler family trailer by the high winds of Hurricane Isabel as it blew through N. Carolina. More than 60 Earnhardt Items inside the trailer were destroyed, as well.
The trailer home of Jim and Irma Diggler of Rocky Mount, NC was destroyed by Hurricane Isabel when it blew through the area last Thursday. The home, decorated with hundreds of Dale Earnhardt memorabilia items, was one of dozens of unofficial Dale Earnhardt museums destroyed in the state. North Carolina officials estimate memorabilia losses at $638, or more than $500,000 in the Southeast.
“The devastation felt by hundreds of our citizens due to damaged or destroyed Dale Sr. memorabilia from Hurricane Isabel is enormous,” said North Carolina Governor Michael Easley. “I personally feel the pain, having lost a No. 3 flag off of my truck.”

The Diggler family trailer had several Earnhardt banners and flags on the outside of their home, and more than 60 items inside the four-room structure – including Earnhardt clocks, framed posters, lunch boxes, t-shirts, cardboard cut-outs and commemorative coins.

“We lost pretty much all of it,” said Jim Diggler. “I spent 20 years compiling this collection and now it’s all gone. Just like Dale.”

The Digglers’ collection was worth an estimated $22, or more than $17,000 in the Southeast. And their loss was mirrored by other trailer home owners in the state who are part of a sort of network of unofficial Dale Earnhardt museums.

“As the birthplace of the greatest stock car racer of all time, we North Carolinians are distraught to see that Isabel took with her so many mementos of our favorite son,” said Gov. Easley. “They will be missed just like Dale.”

The hurricane has inflicted a serious blow to the racing memorabilia and unofficial Dale Earnhardt museum industries, two of North Carolina’s fastest growing. And plans for a Dale Earnhardt Heritage Trail with stops at trailer park museums across the state has been delayed indefinitely.

The Digglers’ neighbor three lots away at the Sweet Acres Mobile Home Park also had their Earnhardt collection ruined. “The hurricane ripped a hole in the side of our house and much or the roof and really had its way with us,” said Mitch Smith. “We don’t have too much Dale stuff left.”

Smith said he felt a surreal connection with the late racer during Isabel’s fury. “I was holding onto my commode in the back room hoping I wouldn’t get blown away, and then it hit me – the roar of the hurricane sounded exactly like the roar of Dale’s engine coming down the homestretch. Then I knew I would be okay ‘cause Dale was there with me hunkered down beside the toilet.”

The state has yet to complete an estimate on the damages inflicted to trailers that are dedicated to drivers other than Earnhardt or to NASCAR in general, but estimate it will be equal to the $638 (or $500,000 Southeast) of losses in Earnhardt paraphernalia.

Gov. Easley said it is the determined spirit of the Earnhardt fans – a spirit Dale himself would be proud of – that will get them through this disaster.

“I’m sure that soon enough, on the back of pickup truck windows across the state you’ll not only see No. 3 stickers and decals of that little boy urinating on a Ford logo, but also decals of that little boy urinating on Hurricane Isabel,” said Gov. Easley. “And I’ll be all the more proud of our great state with every decal I see.” sportspickle.com/.../ 2003-0924-earnhardt.html

But not to worry, according to this article Dirtnap Dale will soon come for you...


Dale Earnhardt Returns to Call NASCAR Fans to Heaven The heavens roared with the sound of a 750 horsepower engine and the skies broke yesterday afternoon, ushering in a choir of angels which Dale Earnhardt quickly drafted past as he sped down to the earth below.

And so the day NASCAR fans had waited and prayed for since The Intimidator was called home on the fateful day at Daytona in 2001 had arrived – Dale, Sr. had returned to call NASCAR fans to Heaven.

Within minutes, millions of people from all over the country – but primarily the South – were taken up to spend eternity in Heaven with their Lord and Savior, Dale Earnhardt, Sr. Cars were instantly left without drivers, wives without husbands, Wal-Marts without employees and customers.



“It was the most amazing thing I’ve ever witnessed,” said Rich McCabe, a Jeff Gordon fan from Raleigh, North Carolina (Jeff Gordon fans seem to have been left behind). “I heard a loud roaring like hundreds of engines revving and also some faint Merle Haggard music, and then people all around me just started shooting up into the sky. The only thing to prove they were ever here was a stream of chew spit or maybe a tipped over Budweiser can.”

James Lincoln, whose job transferred him and his family to Jacksonville, Florida, from Boston a year ago, said he had heard of people talking about a Dale, Sr.-led rapture. But not a NASCAR fan, Lincoln dismissed it as crazy talk by diehards, even though co-workers and neighbors regularly invited him to races and told him about all the excitement the circuit had to offer.

“They spoke of heaven as a place were streets paved with black top are banked between eight and 14 degrees and all of them turn left – and where domestic beer flows like water,” he said. “In heaven they were to do nothing all day but sing the praises of Dale, Sr. and talk about racin’. Supposedly it had all been prophesied somewhere in one of those countless Dale Earnhardt tribute books that are all over the place down here. I don’t know which one.”

Lincoln, like tens of millions of other non-NASCAR fans throughout the country are left to wonder whether they are damned to an eternity in hell because of their denial of Dale Earnhardt and stock car racing.

“I don’t want to go to hell, but I can’t help it if I honestly don’t like NASCAR,” said Lincoln. “I suppose I can see what it does for some people, but I really don’t care for it. If that’s my fate, I suppose there’s not much I can do to prevent it.”

I thought crashes were a big draw for fans.

I think it pretty silly to get all strung out on a death people almost encouraged.

Especially with Dale Earnhardt. He was known to run people in to the wall. Whoops.

Only people who don't like to watch the actual race route for a wreck. If you are a real fan, crashes just annoy the shit out of you and you hope the driver is ok.

It's such crap.

NASCAR fans don't get woodies just because they know how much they're going to squeeze out of the gas tanks or how many times they're going to have to change the tires.

NASCAR fans get woodies because guys are going ridiculously fast inches away from eachother for hours upon hours upon hours.

Thats the rush and adrenaline. The fact that at any time a guy can twirl around in a symphony of metal crunching disaster and death.

Otherwise there would be speed limits posted.

Never heard of “restrictor plates” I take it? Though that actually makes the race’n more dangerous since it bunches’em up even more, from what little I know of it.

Overall, I’m not a fan of the sport, think I’ve even mentioned that a time or two. :hmmm:
What I am a fan of is the guys build’n the cars for’em. I have a healthy respect for anyone that can build a pushrod V-8 that’ll hang out at 8K RPM’s all day long.

The Daytona 200 should be coming up soon.
Motorcycles racing the famous tri-oval, with some infield turns thrown in to actually try’n slow’em down a bit.
The Superbikes will hit ‘round, and in some cases over, 200 MPH headed into the chicane.

Wrong, Dale Sr. was a legend in his sport and when he died he left a huge void in the sport. It would be like if Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky, Babe Ruth, Joe Montana or what ever superstar of their sport died on their main stage event. Pretty sure if would be a big f*cking deal.

He was an embassador of Auto racing, and one of the greatest drivers ever. You may not like or respect the sport but you better damn well respect the dead. You may not have liked Dale, but god forbid one of your precious Chiefs gets hurt, not even killed, you would be all up in arms if someone said one bad thing about it.
