The Man The Legend
25 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing Dale the movie 2007 with my brother, two family friends and my dad in theaters for a special screening to see Dale 2007

Dale Earnhardt the man who many called the legend and true hero of NASCAR.

Any Dale Earnhardt fan must watch this movie because this film does a great justice in learning about the life of Dale Earnhardt Sr. And gives you a great understanding how he becomes one of NASCAR's greats.

Along with Paul Newman as the Narrator and he helps deliver a great narrating for Dale

Many of his family and friends appear in this program to share their stories about Dale. We get to hear from his children Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kelley Earnhardt, Kerry Earnhardt, and Taylor Earnhardt along with his willow Teresa Earnhardt.

Along his friends we get to hear from his Car owner Richard Childress whom he and Dale were very close friends. Along with his follow rival drivers and friends along with those who work behind the scenes sharing stories about Dale Earnhardt.

Also the film features a superb soundtrack with mix of rock and roll and country music

"Fortunate Son" by Creedence Clearwater Revival,"Blood Brothers" by Bruce Springsteen, "Wild Side" Motley Crue, "Hard Workin' Man" by Brooks & Dunn, "Looking For A Road (Theme From Dale)" by Brent Keith "Forty Hour Week (For A Livin')" by Alabama "T-R-O-U-B-L-E" by Travis Tritt, "Bad To The Bone" by George Thorogood, "Sweet Home Alabama" by Lynyrd Skynyrd, "The Intimidator" by Charlie Daniels, "Can't Keep A Good Man Down" by Alabama and "I'm Gonna Be Somebody" by Travis Tritt. Each of these songs are classic and when they are in used for showing highlights of Dale's career they pick the right footage for the song used.

Just watching the movie gets you a understanding and respect for him and it's best when you see it

A real fan of Dale Earnhardt should watch this because this film does a great justice for the man and the legend in the sport any fan of auto racing should get it a watch

I give Dale an 10 out of 10
