Start Your Engines...
Tonight we take a trip into the world of NASCAR motor racing. Dale Earnhardt Senior was one of the most famous NASCAR drivers until his untimely death while racing in 2001. He was famed for driving the number three car (nice show of support there eh?!), and won the NASCAR champs seven times.
Many thanks to Janell for providing our latest statue imitation. Here she stands alongside Dale in his hometown of Kannapolis, North Carolina, with her arms crossed in a fine show of respect.
I’m afraid I’m not much of a follower of motorsports, but one thing that strikes me in particular about the statue is that Dale was absolutely huge! He must have been nine foot plus at least. I’m guessing that they may have had to rip out the front seats of his car so that he could drive from the back.
Only joking. Dale Earnhardt Senior, we salute you.
