Dale Earnhardt Day in Mooresville Still Helps Fans Heal

On this, the anniversary of Dale Earnhardt's birthday, it's terrific to see so many folks turn out for 'Dale Earnhardt Day' in Mooresville. ESPN's NASCAR Now had a very nice hour-long show from the DEI Motorsports facility, culminating with interviews with Jerry Punch and Richard Childress.

It's still very hard for those of us who loved and supported Dale for over 20 years, in many ways, to think about the loss of someone we so admired, respected, and loved. I had the good fortune of speaking to Dale twice, and have never forgotten how gracious and concerned he was about the fans.
