I was born about 3 years after Dale died. When I was about 5, my uncle (the most unlikely nascar fan, don’t ask why) showed me this collection he had where he said he recorded every single Dale race. He played me the most important ones in chronological order, which made me a fan. Then he showed me the last one. The last recording ended before the race did.

Great tribute. Although I grew up in the 90s I didn't start watching Nascar until my adulthood. This was very informative and solidifies the respect he earned throughout his career. Thank you for making this video it tonight me alot about a legend.

I hope someone close to Dale Jr. showed him this video, to show him how much people still love and care about his dad and what he did for racing. To remind him how he inspired people he never even met and 20 years later still brings them to tears. Thank you James for not editing out those moments and showing the true passion you have for this, you're a great guy and you guys at Donut are a great team. Do it for Dale.

I remember the newscast the day he died... When I first heard it, I thought nothing of it... People die all the time I'm motorsports back then... But when I realized who it was, I had to watch again... And upon realizing who it was, my heart stopped at that moment... I couldn't believe it... Denial set in... I didn't want to believe the man was gone... I watched a many of races, looking for that black number 3 that never showed... Eventually I accepted he was gone... Though I never met the in person, I felt as though I lost a member of my family... I grew up watching up watching Dale Earnhardt, Richard Petty, Cale Yarborough, Bennie Pearson, Rusty Wallace... Guys like that... Earnhardt was a mentor of mine... And when I took up racing for a short time, I learned from him... I'm a sim racer now, but still use the Earnhardt mentality... Dale Earnhardt Sr., You will not be forgotten... He now is among other motorsport Legends like Ayrton Senna, Colin McRae, Sapine Schmidt, and others... Drivers come and drivers go, but the LEGENDS, live forever...

Dale didn't have enough of a single paint for his first car. So, he combined all of the paint cans together to have enough. It came out pink! It also was good enough to run near the top. Won enough money for more paint!

Dale Sr. is my childhood hero, and i watch EVERYTHING there is to watch about him, but this video was near impossible for me to finish to the end. WHY is it so over-edited, with you constantly moving around all over the place, constant cuts, zoomed-in cuts on your face when you are talking about something ? Jesus Christ just SHOW us what you are talking about, instead of showing yourself sitting in front of a green screen half of the video ! Just awful editing all-around.

Is "blocking" at 150mph allowed in NASCAR? I know whenever I'm trying to do something for one of my kids, I don't look out for me, and make dumb mistakes. Wasn't Dale Sr. blocking for Dale Jr., who was on another team? Isn't that some kind of cheating? Am I going too far in suspecting that he was endangering his life as well as that of the drivers near him? Unnecessarily? No boo hoo for me, thanks. Let's celebrate that he didn't take anyone else out.

I’ve always loved cars and although I’ve always had an appreciation for NASCAR, I’ve never been huge into it. But watching this story timeline about Sr. sure hit me right in the feels! I have now gained a new level of appreciation for the sport and the legend! On a side note, several years ago I was at the Bar J Ranch in Jackson Hole, WY to have dinner at the Chuckwagon and watch the Bar J Wranglers perform. I walked into the men’s room to use the urinal and no shit, Richard Petty himself walked up and used the pisser right next to me! Later on outside the wife and I got his autograph on the back of a Walmart receipt she had in her purse. Lol, if that ain’t country I’ll kiss your ass!

Holy crap. That has to be one of the deepest SLus videos I’ve ever seen, delivered by one of the shallowest “influencers” I’ve ever watched. James-I’ve always been interested in your material with the Donut channel, but I’ve written it off as loud-mouthed, simplified, attention grabbing junk food for the intellect. It seems now that I’ve been guilty of underestimating you to a massive degree. I’m equal parts surprised and impressed by your narration of this great man’s life, in particular the honest way you’ve laid bare your feelings for the ruthless SLus crowd to potentially dissect and provide fodder for the trolls. I’ve always been a massive fan of Dale Jr, without really understanding the history-possibly due to the limited coverage of NASCAR here in the land down under. James - thanks from the bottom of my heart for telling Dale’s story from the bottom of yours.

I knew Dale Earnhardt's death was tragic but I had no idea there was so much drama packed into his final moments. It was the final lap of the race, his son was in the lead, Dale is blocking the rest of the cars to get his son the win... and he dies in a split second. He dies in a crash that doesn't even look that bad and his son sees it in the rear view mirror. His son finishes the race but the only thing he's thinking about is his dad--is he ok? Meanwhile Dale's friend Ken who had a hand in causing the crash looks in the front window of the car and whatever he sees shakes him to his core. The whole thing is surreal, like something out of a movie. What a tragic and culminating moment.
