Storyline

Biographical story of Dale Earnhardt, Sr. starts with his young life and growing up with his father, Ralph, who raced for a living, but initially wanted more for his son. When Dale quits high school to start driving full time, his father aids him and shows a reluctant pride when he is initially successful. Armed with many of his father's philosophies, Dale pushed himself to be the best. His aggressive track mannerisms earned himself fans and detractors. Fellow racer Neil Bonnett was one of those long time friends and whose death deeply affected Dale. Darrell Waltrip clearly was a detractor and the two men's rivalry is clearly depicted. Off the track, Dale's determination to make it impacts two marriages. Third wife Theresa was closer to racing and met Dale when he had started his rise into the Winston Cup circuit.

Awesome Movie
6 July 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

3:The Dale Earnhardt Story had not been a widely advertised movie, to be truthful it hadnt been advertised at all around here, and that to me really is a shame, because it is a lot better movie then a lot of the crap that they're putting out nowadays.

I myself am a stock car driver, and who else do i look up to other then Dale Earnhardt himself, on the track I've lived by the quote that Ralph tells dale "The winner isn't the man with the faster car, it is the man that refuses to lose", that among others of course.

I know i watch this movie every day for sure, and i highly recommend it to anyone. Not just race fans.
