If there was any doubt that the competitive fire still burned in the belly of Dale Earnhardt despite his advancing years, he certainly dispelled all such notions by winning the 40th annual Daytona 500 in 1998, on his 20th try. The aggressive style of the seven-time Winston Cup champion mesmerized a generation of fans and earned him a reputation as one of the sport's greatest drivers. He's a NASCAR legend and a child of the South who rewrote the record books with his daring style on the track and his folksy style off it. A third-generation race car driver, his love of family and the outdoors, and his Carolina roots stirred the imagination of millions of fans and made him a role model for many. The updated version covers Earnhardt's career through his tragic death in 2001.
