10 years ago this day...

Ten years ago on this day, a racing legend was lost. Dale Earnhardt was a gifted racing driver who held his own. He was very well known for his antics in NASCAR, being forever known as "The Intimidator", whats surprising though is the lack of people who knew him for his career in sports car racing. In 2001, Dale drove the #3 Corvette in the 24 Hours of Daytona; one of the last races he would ever drive in. The story of him in Daytona is a great one which I would highly recommend reading.
