Here’s an old photo of race car driver Dale Earnhardt, back in 1979. Earnhardt is widely regarded as one of the most significant drivers in NASCAR history. With a total of 76 Winston Cup races won over the course of his career, how could he not be? He also earned seven NASCAR Winston Cup championships.

It was in February of 2001 when Earnhardt collided with Ken Schrader during the final lap of the Daytona 500 and died instantly. Earnhardt remains a NASCAR legend and has been inducted into numerous halls of fame, including the NASCAR Hall of Fame inaugural class in 2010.
