    Okay. You want to compare Dale Earnhardt to Richard Petty.  Richard's first race was in 1958, his last was in 1992.  That's 34 years of racing, in which he made 1,185 starts.  Dale Earnhardt ran his first race in 1975, and his last in 2001.  That's 26 years in which he made 676 starts.  Richard had nearly a decade on Dale, so of course, he has more wins. (let's hope he would..) but i think to have as many championships in 8 less years of driving is quite a feat.  Earnhardt was rookie of the year in 1979, he was a 4-time IROC series champion, (that's against the best of international drivers, not just NASCAR), he was the most popular driver in 2001, made the Hall of Fame in 2002, and was inducted into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame in 2006. Pretty good stats to only be supported by dumb rednecks.Now, the other name I hear in comparison is Jeff Gordon.  Gordan has only a few less wins, but about 100 less top 10 finishes, and so far he's 11 years short of Dale's Winston Cup/Ne...

    Overrated driver who had the sanctioning body (NASCAR)in his hip pocket. The rules allowed him to pick his pit stall during those years, a huge advantage. Another advantage, he was allowed to wreck his competitors week in and week out without fear of penalty.

    His name will always be synonymous with stock car racing. Junior has big shoes to fill if he wants to emulate the victories and the glories that his father endured during 1979-2001.

    The greatest driver to ever live. And the greatest driver ever to die behind the wheel. How many can say they died doing what they loved?

    Very overrated. Couldn't win unless he wrecked the car ahead of him.

    I did not like him near as much as I do his son, Dale Jr. But he did leave his mark in NASCAR history, and there is no denying that. He lived by the wall, and died by the wall. R.I.P. Dale....God bless your family. I still think it is a tragedy how you passed on. :(

    oh my gah! i dont want to talk about the dead but this man was a BAD person when he was alive. Wrecking people to win? He got mad if anyone dare touched his car but he wrecked everyone out there. I think he was taken out of this world by God for a reason. Too many people were like worshiping him. Although I dont see why. Oh and his son REALLY sucks bad! JEFF GORDON #1!!!!!!

    Dale Earnhardt is NASCAR. The greatest driver ever. And a kind, loving, caring human being to boot. A tragedy that he is gone.

    He was the driver you either loved, or loved to hate. I was on the second end, but that doesn't mean i didn't recognize his skill as a driver. The best behind Petty. R.I.P. Dale, someday they will retire your number 3 and pay the respect you truly deserve.

    Definatly the greatest. He raced and one in two era's. Petty couldn't pull off a win for a long time before he retired.

    the intimidator was the best at what he did. sad to see he is no longer with us

    For all what he's done to the sport? It would be sacreligious to give the Intimidator anything less. He might've driven dirty but off the track the guy was a true kind-hearted man. Reason 1: When Dale Jarrett won the cup back in '99, Earnhardt let him use his lear jet for the banquet dinner to New York and left a note saying "From a Champion To a Champion, congratulations, Dale". That's Class. Reason 2: A sick cancer-ridden, dying kid that Dale visited in the hospital gave Dale a penny for good luck to race in Daytona in '98. He stuck the penny on his dash and low and behold he one his first Daytona race. Great guy!

    This man was the king of Nascar, he was loved my millions, or either hated. he always did all that he could to win,that day he died doing what he loved, I admire him for striving for what he wanted and doing what ever it took to be the best...to be number one!

    When you think of NASCAR, then you automatically think of this man. He played his sport to win, at any cost. He was good at what he did, and he always appeared to be a respectable man outside the track too. I am sad that he is gone...hopefully, his family & friends & fans can find solace in the fact that this man died doing what he loved.

    I am and have been a Dale Earnhardt fan since 1979. This man is the essence of NASCAR, aggessive, bold, a truly skilled driver with reflexes, intuition and expertise achieved by just a few. Jeff Gordon may be winning, but he's still whining- - he hasn't even begun to pay his dues like Earnhardt!!!

    He embodies the epitome of good ol' boy racing ... the #3 is synonomous with winning in style.
