    yep i wrote it down last night. im in the central zone so at 7 ill be watching. he was the man even though i was a jarrett fan. i was sitting just past the finish line at talladega in 2000 when he got his 76th and last win. i even bought the 1/24 raced version action of the car and have the ticket stub and photos.

    whenever jarrett wasnt in contention for the win i was hoping dale e would. in 1999 both races finished dale e-dale j 1&2. that was awesome.

    i'm not an earnhardt fan but i will be watching the movie. i appreciate his skill and determination at his sport. he was absolutely a redneck and i do appreciate that.

    that was an extrodenary film. i used to watch dale when i was a teen on late night tv they would replay races. i got to see a lot of history. i never knew him and dw were such rivals in years past. and how they mended the relationship. seeing dale on the lake. and some of the remarks. like "the day i start saying i did this i did that , i hope richard childress shoves his fist in my mouth. and the day on the mountain.

    i really enjoied that documentary. i never had seen the one where dale wiped his own window under caution while steering with his knee. weather ya loved or hated him i think that film would bring a tear to your eye.

    from rookie, champ, friend, husband, to dad. all the way till feb 01 dale was a true hero to most.

    Yes he was and still is their hero.
    There was alot that made Earnhardt their hero and that included Dale on and off the track.
    He was self made.

    I watched it last night. Very moving to say the least, the very least. I will admit, I kept waiting for him to catch something when they showed him at the pond.

    I watched it and enjoyed because you know around here it's Earnhardt country.
