Dale Earnhart was killed instantly when his car slammed head-on into the turn 4 wall on the last lap of the Daytona 500. His crash looked tame compared to the 18 car meelay that happened 30 laps before his crash. This was the first NASCAR race I watched start to finish in a few years (I wanted a Dodge to win thats why). The racing was actually good this time. I'm no Earnhart fan, but its something you dont want to hear about. At least he died doing what he loved to do. RIP Dale Sr.
