THE KING IS DEAD! LONG LIVE THE KING 02-18-01
"Dale Earnhardt was the greatest race car driver that ever lived. He could do things with a race car that no one else could." - Ned Jarrett
Why did this happen?
Richard Petty has said it best. "Never put a question mark where God has put a period."
"NASCAR has lost its greatest driver," said NASCAR chairman of the board Bill France, who himself is recovering from life-threatening illnesses, "and I personally have lost a great friend."
"I will miss him always. He was the greatest."
-Richard Childress, Car owner of Dale Earnhardt
``Like many others, we were fans of Dale Earnhardt - certainly the driver, but especially the man. In spite of our intense rivalry, Dale Earnhardt has been a great friend to us and to all who have helped to make this sport great. Dale Earnhardt transcended NASCAR. His loss will have an effect on racing and its fans worldwide.'' - Dan Davis, director of Ford Racing Technology.
``It's always tragic, but this is our main guy. Today when they introduced him, he got the biggest applause there. He's the man, he is NASCAR Winston Cup racing. I'm just numb. I've lost a great friend.'' - Ed Clark, president of Atlanta Motor Speedway.
``Like so many people around the world, I became a NASCAR fan because I became a Dale Earnhardt fan. Dale was someone I was proud to have my son look up to. We all have our memories we will cherish, memories of excitement, competitiveness and most of all memories of a great man. On behalf of the people of Alabama, I extend my thoughts and prayers to his family and friends.'' - Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman.
``NASCAR lost its greatest driver and probably the greatest driver it will ever have. My heart goes out to his family, his crew, his friends and his fans. There is no better group of fans in our sport and I feel for them. Our sport will go on, but I don't think it will ever be the same. NASCAR is about family, and I can't think of a time in its history when it needs to pull together like a family.'' - driver Johnny Benson.
On behalf of Taylor, Dale, Jr., Kerry, Kelley and the entire Earnhardt family, which also includes all the employees of Dale Earnhardt Incorporated, we want to sincerely thank everyone that has offered their condolences during our very tragic loss. This outpouring has been overwhelming. We kindly ask that you keep our family in your thoughts and prayers.
We also thank you for your memorials and ask that in lieu of flowers that you consider donations to:
Attn: Honor of Dale Earnhardt
P.O. Box 34769
Charlotte, N.C. 28234-4769

There is hope for the future
