Dale Earnhardt - The Movie

http://www.dalethemovie.com/

I CANNOT WAIT to see this movie!!!

I've always been a HUGE fan of Dale Sr.. IMO, he was the greatest driver of all time as well as in NASCAR, and should be mentioned along with some of the all-time greats, such as Senna, Schumacher, etc..

I was very fortunate to have met him three times. Contrary to the way he was perceived, he truly was a great man.

One of my prized possessions is a 1/24 scale showcar hauler, which I had signed back in '94 by Dale's entire crew, his car owner Richard Childress, and Dale.

Here's to one of the greatest of all time!

Dale is without a doubt the greatest driver ever!! NASCAR has not been the same since the 2001 Daytona 500.

Dale was great and is one of the best ever, he help make the sport what it is. I must say though the The King will always be the best in my book.

Couldn't agree with you more. I still watch and go to the races, but it truly isn't the same. :(

I was at Daytona in '98 when he finally won it, as well as '01. I'll never forget '01. I was listening to him and his team on my scanner, and I can still hear his car owner Richard Childress calling to him on the radio. I can't describe the feeling. :( :( :(

This movie will be a decent rental, but I won't be paying my $10 to see it at the big show

Here you go.


Richard Childress (Owner) 'Chocolate' (Chocolate Meyers - gas man) Andy Petree (Former Crew Chief)

Danny Lawrence, David Smith, and THE MAN


I went to the 'Open House' at Richard Childress Racing on '04 and waited 7 hrs. to see Dale. He never took a break that whole time and made sure everyone there got to see him. He was a special person.

Last chance to see the movie tomorrow night, 9/6, on CMT @ 8PM.

It's been on the past two nights, and I've watched both times. I saw it in the theater too, but I can't pass up watching a movie about the greatest driver in NASCAR's history whenever possible.

It's well worth putting aside a couple of hours to watch, even if you're not a Dale Earnhardt fan.

He truely was a special kind of person. He worked hard for everything he had and never forgot where he came from, and that says a lot. This is a GREAT movie and I highly encourage anyone who hasn't seen it yet to definitely check it out! I cried when it showed the Daytona 500 in 2001... his last race ever. Racing will never be the same as it was when the Man in Black was circling the track.

Love Live #3!!!
Gone but NEVER Forgotten!!!

Dale songs

There are alot of Dale songs, this is one of my favorite

"Riding with the Legend" by Keith Bryant

I was on my way to Daytona, I had my race gear in my pack,
When a stranger pulled up beside me in a stock car, painted black.
He was dressed like a NASCAR driver, moustache with mirrored eyes.
Said: "It's a long walk to Florida, would you like a ride, son?"

So I crawled across the roll-cage as he fired that Chevy up.
The badge on his sleeve said the man had won seven Winston cups.
His eyes were intimidatin', as he rode into the night.
An' I knew there was somethin' strange about this ride.

He said: "Boy, can you make fans stand an' scream your name?
"Can you hit 'em in the rear an' grab another gear, still roll into victory lane?"
He said: "Boy, do you know how it feels to run three wide?
"'Cause if you're Daytona-bound, let me warn you, you're in for a ride."

Then he cried when we got to Daytona an' as he pulled onto the track,
An' he said: "This is where you get out boy, 'cause number three ain't comin' back."
As I crawled out of the race car, I said: "Thanks, I'll catch you later."
He said: "It'd be tough catchin' me boy, 'cause I'm The Intimidator."

He said: "Boy, do you make fans stand an' scream your name?
"Can you hit 'em in the rear an' grab another gear, still roll into victory lane?"
He said: "Boy, do you know how it feels to run three wide?
"'Cause if you're Daytona-bound, let me warn you, you're in for a ride."

He said: "Boy, can you make fans stand an' scream your name?
"Can you hit 'em in the rear an' grab another gear, still roll into victory lane?"
He said: "Boy, do you know how it feels when you're runnin' three wide?
'Cause if you're Daytona-bound, let me warn you, you're in for a ride."
"If you're Daytona-bound, let me warn you, you're in for a ride."

"The last ride."

On a side note... another song i like about Nascar is Jeff Gordons Gay, by Tim Wilson

Yeah, I'd love to see that picture.

Watchin' the movie the other night brought back sad memories. I still hate that he's gone. It feels like I lost a family member.

NASCAR will never ever be the same.

I have the picture. :( I'll post a pic. asap.

It was taken after the race, along Interstate 85. As it traveled back to N.C., not one car would pass it. All who were behind followed with their lights on. :(

Why didn't they pass? Honor, or fear of a big truck? I'd guess the former but I had to ask.
