    HAPPY 59TH BIRTHDAY DALE…..WE MISS YOU SO VERY MUCH!

    When I purchased my 2002 Monte Carlo SS, I did it with you in mind and it will be my only car ’til I die. When I saw your Monte Carlo, I knew I had to have one. I remember as a child my Dad always owned Chevy’s and we were told that was the only car we should ever drive. And you always reminded me of my “DAD”

    Bless You!!!!!!!

  62. Happy Birthday Dale !!! Hope your looking over your family,they need you and always will.
    To bad we all couldnt make something really nice happend,today and in the furture: Lets just close our eyes and picture this..Dale Jr. at RCR in a bright red bud #3 car !!! Wouldnt that be great..his Dad’s # but Dale Jr.s red Bud car once again on the track. Just think about how many people would benefit from that. Tracks…fans…RCR….Dale Jr…Jr. Motorspots and all the people the work out of both teams. Dont forget the sponors & if you feel really good even DEI.
    She made a big mistake & I for one think she knows that know. But remember Dale Jr. is all about FAMILY..that one thing that makes his the great man he is . JUST LIKE HIS DAD WAS. Always a Jr. Fan

  64. Happy Birthday Dale! Wish you were still here and maybe still racing!

    Without a doubt Nascar will never be the same without you Dale. How we do miss seeing the #3 and that “Intimidating” grin on your face. You are missed so much in so many ways. God Bless your soul my friend. When I hear it thunder, sometimes it makes me think it’s you starting your engine. You will be missed forever! ! ! ! !

  65. Mama Donia on
  66. Happy, Happy Birthday Dale!!!!! You will always be missed. I have this date marked on my calendar each and every year, it’s really hard to go to the races now, it will be great to see Jr. in that #3 in Daytona in July, only an Earnhardt should ever have that number, in my way of thinking.

  67. goldie on
  68. What wonderful memories you left us all with. No one before and no one since has thrilled us race fans as you did. If there is a racetrack in Heaven, I know you are still thrilling the heavenly fans also. We are thinking of you today especially for your birthday, but we fans think of you more often than that….

  78. I was there that day, the day God took you home. It was a horrible accident, but you knew either way, one of your cars was going to win! Of course, it ended up being Waltrip, I don’t think he ever really got to enjoy that win like he should have. You would have wanted him to. You’re missed in a big way. Your son is doing his best to fill your shoes, he is his own man and own racer though……I know you smile down on him all the time! And you would approve him driving the #3 for the Nationwide Series Race!!!!!

    True fan forever!

  79. Carol on

  84. Dale Earnhardt day was great for me. I remembered the day when Dale was born 60 years ago. I put a few of my #3 Dale Earnhardt magnets on my Chevy truck and enjoyed showing of my love for the Intimidator everywfere i went.
    As for the famous #3.
    The #3 is retired forever, it has been retired ever since Dale left us.
    No man or women should ever drive a car with #3 on again.
    Not even Kerry Earnhardt, Kelly King, Ralph Dale Jr., or Tyler Nicole.
    I remember Richard Childress Saying “No WON WILL EVER DRIVE THE #3 AS LONG AS HE HAS ANYTHING TO SAY ABOUT IT”.
    Dale took alot of our hearts with him when he left us over 10 years ago. But also took the #3 with him forever.
    Forever your #1 fan. Drive #3 forever Intimidator.
