R.I.P. Dale Earnhardt: Drivers, Fans Remember Champion on Anniversary of Daytona Death

Today marks the 14th anniversary of the passing of Dale Earnhardt, who died Feb. 18, 2001, in a last-lap crash during the Daytona 500.

But while Earnhardt is no longer with us, he is by no means forgotten; after all, not a Daytona Speedweeks goes by without mention of the seven-time champion’s famous name.

So it was no surprise that fans, drivers and the media took to Twitter today to celebrate the life of the Intimidator. See some of the tributes, from the Earnhardt family and others, below.
