Always A Champion : A Tribute and Farewell to the IntimidatorBook - 2001
The fast and furious sport of NASCAR racing has produced more than its share of heroes and champions, but few have ever achieved the legendary status of Dale Earnhardt. Known as "The Intimidator," Dale Earnhardt made a name for himself as a fierce competitor, a man with ambition and passion who would never be satisfied being anything less than the best. His sudden and tragic death during the final lap of the Daytona 500 sent a shockwave through the racing community, leaving legions of NASCAR followers to mourn an unbelievable loss. Featuring full-color photos from the entire spectrum of Earnhardt's career, Dale Earnhardt: Always a Champion offers reactions from colleagues and fans on the lasting impression made by the respected NASCAR driver. It also presents a solemn perspective on the loved ones he left behind--his family and his sport--and their respective struggles to move on without him. First and foremost, however, this work stands as a tribute to the life of this extraordinary human being.
