Dale Earnhardt, what can't you say about the true champion in the racing sport, let alone an icon for many?  You either loved him or hated him.  Either way, most felt strongly about one way or another.  This is a small tribute from me, to a man that changed NASCAR racing forever.  He became known as, the man in black, the Intimidator, a hard racer, a true champion, hard worker, family man, devoted husband, and a friend to an infinitive number of people.  There is so much that can be said about Dale.  I am not really going to go into all the statistics that Dale made in history.  I just want to say my peace on Dale and my respect for true champion, and how his death made such an impact in our lives.
