Movie Reviews

Dale Earnhardt was the best!
Thomas C. Evans | Hagerstown, MD | 12/07/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was at this race. It was unbelievable! Being an Earnhardt fan, and the only Daytona 500 I ever witnessed live made this one of the most memorable moments of my life. Earnhardt came up through racing the old fashioned way, he earned it, unlike the new hotshots of today. There will never be another like him. Even if you were not an Earnhardt fan, you did have to respect the raw talent of this driver. If anyone questions this, just remember the pass in the grass at Charlotte. If you are too young to remember, ask someone who isn't, and they will tell you that is was one of the greatest moves in the history of NASCAR. Dale is sorely missed, and NASCAR just isn't the same anymore."
Dale Sr is dearly missed...

"He deserved this win... very emotional victory. Those new-star racers will never be half the man Earnhardt was. Nobody with half a brain could say he didn't impact Nascar in a positive way. The idiot who posted before obviously has no Nascar knowledge whatsoever. Probably a teenager who thinks Tony Stewart invented nascar! ;)"
Great Memories...

"Now, I had watched racing since 1995 and had followed the Black #3 straight out. This race in itself was a great memory as I was definately tuned in the day he won, but what we really need to see is some good ole Bristol Nightrace in 1995 AND 1999 (any #3 fan I'm sure will recall those, great memories!), Rockingham 1996, and some Talladega (basically ANY race there). Earnhardt driving that #3 was the best advertising GM Goodwrench ever could have had as it was on the camera a LOT, even when he had a bad race. This 1998 500 was actually not as action packed as many I remember (talladega is always a better race), but the ending results and the image of that Black #3 on the track are worth all 5 stars!

For the person who made the foolish comment about him 'cheating', well wake up! NASCAR Racing is a Redneck Sport, it started that way, it will always be that way, 'moving people' out of the way to win races is what it was all about. You win any way you can, and you fight, block, bump, rub, anything to keep em behind you. Sorry they can't all be 'Mr Clean' never touch or bump anything because they're too afraid to get into it on the track (ya wonder why some races are just bland...nothing happens to draw the camera's attention anymore). And as I recall, incase that lister is a Jeff Gordon fan, Gordon's team was involved in more 'Illegal Parts and Tech Failures' than the #3 was ever accused of. There is nothing wrong with 'finding the limits' of NASCAR's rulebook. I commend Harvick's crewchief for being creative afterall at Vegas 05 with the Fuel Cell. Just inconvenient that they got caught!

And yes drafting is a Talent that noone else (not even his son) has Mastered like he did...and perhaps never will."
