This profile of the racing star details his move from IndyCar to NASCAR, his relationship with his devoted fans—and those devoted to hating him—as well as inside stories that are only known outside of the winner’s circle.

Revered by NASCAR fans as one of the all-time greatest drivers of the premier stock car series, this profile on the late Dale Earnhardt shares more about his career than how many times he made it to the winner’s circle. Interesting insights into the history of the talented driver include his near-split with Richard Childress Racing just before the introduction of his iconic racecar, the race he called his “breakthrough” victory, and the full story of the only race against his father Ralph—and how a fellow competitor was not pleased with either of them after the last lap.
