Can't believe I'm never going to see you race again.

I miss him so much. He was much too young to die. The "silver-lining" in his death was that he didn't have to see the horror that happened on 9-11-01. God spared him from seeing his country under attack by islamic assholes who hate us just because we are free. RIP Dale, you are very, very missed. Love, Edie

I watched Dale's last race

I actually watched Dale's last race. We were watching TV commercial. Suddenly the commercial got cut off and we were watching the crash. The crash didn't look bad on TV because it was on TV. But the angle of the crash was the classic "death" angle. He it the wall at 190mph. The legend is gone. We wish the Jr(8) all the luck.
