The 01 Daytona 500 was the very first, and my only, NASCAR race I've been to. I was a kid but I remember that race like it was just the other day. Was really hard heading home that day, getting a call from family on the way home, and being told that Dale Sr. died. We had no idea and didn't expect anything other than him being a bit sore and being in the car for the next race. Definitely going to stick with me for the rest of my life and I don't think I will ever go to another race.

My dad loves nascar, has been watching it for 30+ years, his favorite driver was Dale Earnhardt. My mom on the other hand never watched nascar, until he finally got her to watch the Daytona 500…2001. My dad was ultimately crushed and my mom was never allowed to watch nascar again. My favorite driver is Dale Earnhardt jr..
