Dale Earnhart Injured In Crash, Possibly Dead!

Mon Feb 19, 2001 8:38 am

Man, I just heard on the news about the crash that Dale Earnhart was in today at Daytona, that he might have passed away because of his injuries. This will really be a sad day for NASCAR fans if this is true. Let's hope for the best. Has anyone heard anything about it yet??

He isn't dead, but he is under observation in serious condition, according to ESPN.com

The Intimidator always lives life on the edge. 26 cars were involved...including Jeff Gordon.

WOW, I'm shocked. While not a big NASCAR fan, and especially not an Earnhart fan, I offer condolences to his family and friends. Indeed dazed767, R.I.P. Dale Earnhart.

I just heard on the radio that Dale Earnhart has been confirmed dead. I also see that http://www.nascar.com says so. This is a very sad day.  Crying

This is probably the way he would have wanted to go out. It is a sad day indeed.

I agree PopFiction. It is the biggest and most famous race of the NASCAR season. At least he died doing what he loved to do.

Same here, Chris. I saw the replay about five times and couldn't see how someone could get killed in that crash, especially after seeing that really big pile up towards the beginning of the race.

RIP

It doesn't look too serious but it is. This is such a sad day. My condolences goes to his family and a big goes to Dale Earnhardt Jr. I remember the day when Adam Petty got killed. The impact of the wall and from Schrader's car is what killed him.

NASCAR and the world just lost the famous race driver.

May he rest with peace forever
