My relationship with Dale Earnhardt

As his nickname stuck with fans as “The Intimidator,” I called him “The Eliminator,” because he’d come behind you and towards the end of the race, he’d run into you and eliminate you. 

Safety and racing

There were no soft walls in place or no HANS Device requirements when I wrecked in Daytona in 2000. By the time the accident was over, the whole front of the vehicle was chopped up.
