The Life and Times of the Intimidator
"The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous man rushes to it and finds refuge." Proverbs 18:10

(This scripture was taped to the dash of Earnhardt's car by Stevie Waltrip, Darrell Waltrip's wife, prior to the Feb. 18th Daytona 500.)

Florida restricts access to autopsy photos - March 29, 2001
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Standing beside Dale Earnhardt's widow, Gov. Jeb Bush signed a bill Thursday to keep autopsy photos closed to the public unless a judge approves their release. The law sprang from an outcry over the Orlando Sentinel's request to see Earnhardt's autopsy photos. Teresa Earnhardt led the protests, saying she wanted to protect her family's privacy. Full Story

I would like to recognize and say thank you to Florida Governor Jeb Bush, Senators Jim King and Bill Posey, Representatives Jeff Miller and Randy Johnson, and most of all, the tens of thousands of people in Florida and elsewhere who spoke out in defense of my family's fundamental right to privacy.

A fine Daytona afternoon, the season just begun.
My boys were running one and two, and I was having fun.
I probably could have won the thing, but something held me back.
I was busy watching Dale and Mike -- and holding off the pack.

I was looking toward the front and not really to the rear.
Something tapped me on my bumper, but still I had no fear.
I thought it might be Sterling - I knew he was nearby.
When Sterling smells the checkered flag,! I'll tell you, he ain't shy.

I slipped a bit. I turned the wheel. I sensed something very odd.
It wasn't Sterling's tap I'd felt. It was the tap of God.

"Not now," I said. "I'm racing hard. There's work still here to do."
"You're time is up," He whispered low, "So say a quick adieu."

I wasn't really ready, but I didn't have a choice.
He'd tapped me on the bumper and I'd heard His hallowed voice.
So ! I did as He instructed. I just packed it in and left.

I guess it can't be helped that I left some of you bereft.
Did you see those birds upon the wall as they scattered in the breeze?
Will it make it any easier to know that was me?
There was also Davey, Dad and Neil and some other guys I've known.
And they all came to Daytona just to escort me on home.

Hey - congratulations, Mikey! You made a worthy run.
I wish you many, many more. You're wins have just begun.
All that fun you had in Victory Lane, I was proud as proud can be.
Did you see a seagull flying low? Yeah, Mikey, that was me.

So, friends and fans and family, don't mourn me for too long.
Get on with life - take care of things - be brave and proud and strong.

I'll surely miss you every one. About that I will not lie.
But as long as you remember me - I didn't really die.

It Hurts So Bad...
Words cannot express the pain that is in my heart over the loss of the Greatest NASCAR Driver ever, Dale Earnhardt. For over twenty years I have followed this man's career attending races and when not attending them watching them on television. Every Sunday I was either in his living room (the race track) or he was in mine by way of the TV broadcast.
Yet all the pain that I feel and most race fans feel cannot compare to that of what Martha, his mother, Teresa, his wife, and Kelly , Kerry, Dale Jr. and Taylor Nicole, his children must feel. They have lost a son, a husband and a father.

The Decal
I have no idea if there will be an official #3 Memorial Decal as seen on the DEI and RCR cars that will be available to the public. 

The Hat
We've received a lot of email inquiring about the 3 hat that was worn
by most of the Winston Cup drivers and teams at Rockingham honoring
Dale Earnhardt.  Motorsports Direct is taking orders for the hat.
Allow approximately 90 days for delivery.

It's Reigning Threes - March 12, 2001
Dale Earnhardt, my hero, left us to soon. My heart still aches at the very thought or mention of his name and tears fill my eyes. He is a legend, just a few weeks ago a living legend. Now I would say he's giving God a race of eternity. I can see that sly grin underneath the famous moustache as he looks over at God in the car next to him and gives Him the thumbs up
and it starts reigning threes.
