NASCAR Classic Race replay: Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s first Cup Series win | Texas Motor Speedway


Dale Earnhardt Jr. outran runner-up Jeff Burton down the stretch and secured his first win in just his 12th Cup Series start. The feat touched off a special celebration in Victory Lane with his father, who owned his son's No. 8 Chevrolet and came home seventh in his own iconic No. 3.

    Was so cool to see Dale Earnhardt being a PROUD DADDY this day when Jr won!!!Funny too the way Dale yanked the hat guy outta the way to talk to Jr at the car window!!Earnhardt finished 2nd in the points in 2000 & I TRULY believe would've won his 8th title in 2001 if he would've lived!!Richard said Dale had that look in his eyes again at Daytona he was BACK better than ever to contend for 8th cup & Dale Jr would've won at least 1 cup title I believe if he wouldn't have lost his DADDY & MENTOR!!!DALE YOU ARE STILL LOVED & MISSED!!ALWAYS "THE MAN" ALWAYS " A FAN"!!!

Watching Beast Wars, right up until the last episode when Dinobot was going to kill himself. And learning why local channels was no longer a thing. (plus about ten or so years later, fianlly went to cable) And now? Well look at Fox.

    Nascar should upload all races to youtube. As much as they need new fans or old fans who don't much care for new school nascar to keep paying attention. They should upload season of Nascar. Start with like 1990 & start uploading races. You can basically find every race on here whether its the cup series or busch series but its usually uploaded by some fan & the copy isn't that good. Like this race for example has been on youtube for all to see but the copy of this race isn't as good & clear as this version that nascar uploaded. Not many people are going to go buy old races but if Nascar kept uploading all the old races for all to see they would get a 100k+ views like this race has got. If I was Nascar Id attract viewers any way I can.

    NASCAR is all but a shell of itself now. Stages and playoffs have ruined it. I miss when cars were good enough to get 5 sec leads. We will never see how good they truly are again. Junior said he was no longer having fun racing before retiring and this shows why. It's like NASCAR wants them racing in a parking lot that can take out 1/2 the field in a second. Extended long runs are the only way to race, not mandatory time outs and pit stops to equal the field. If your shit isn't good enough it isn't good enough and too bad. The best fastest car wins, not the guy who limps around the entire race. Two Earnhardts in a big race is too cool.

    @JT Talks no, it used to pay less... Once rookies started making $1 million per year, the expected age to retire began to go down... Even if they brought this package back, people would still retire at 41 since they’ve already made too much money to risk getting injured.

    @alwaysopen That was when CART/Champ Car attempted to race there in 2001. See Those drivers were going over 240mph around Texas Motor Speedway. On the other hand Texas has been a staple in the Indy Racing League since the track opened, the IRL package doesn't have the cars going that fast around the track.

    I understand the great talent that nascar grew after Dale Sr past on, but man miss Dale Jr racing. I try not to think about this, but I still wonder how much growth, and even more talent that could Dale Sr could have taught him, if he hadn’t past away!! I mean Dale Jr basically won pretty much every big race, but I think Sr, could have given him tips, to when a championship. Even with out the championship, He’s still one of the best to do it, with all that went on in his life, after losing his father at Daytona.. I will always miss not seeing Jr racing in the 8 car, or the 88, and I will forever miss Sr!!

    Its not just Sr. being able to teach Jr. better ways to race certain tracks as Jr. had always said that his dad would never really sit with him & talk to him about specific ways to race. Anytime I ever listen to Jr. speak about his dad he always ends admitting he never really got a lot of advice from his dad about racing. Maybe that would've changed if he never passed away. But what would've been different is that DEI would've stayed competitive with Sr. continuing to run DEI instead of Teressa.
