OriginEdit

Dale Earnardt Sr. was an American professional stock car racing driver and team owner, best known for his involvement in stock car racing for NASCAR. The third child of racing driver Ralph Earnhardt and first of two to Martha Coleman, he began his career in 1975 in the World 600 as part of the Winston Cup Series. Competitors and fans held Earnhardt in higher esteem, as his aggressiveness on the track won him 76 Winston Cups over the course of his career. During the 2001 Daytona 500, Earnardt’s car had a serious collision with another driver on the final lap, causing him to immediately die from his traumatic injuries.
