In February 2001, Earnhardt was killed instantly after a collision with Ken Schrader during the final lap of the Daytona 500 – an unexpected event that was widely lamented in the racing industry.
He was born on April 29, 1951, in Kannapolis, North Carolina, as the third child of Martha (Coleman) and Ralph Earnhardt.
Earnhardt's father was then one of the best short-track drivers in North Carolina and won his first and only NASCAR Sportsman Championship in 1956 at Greenville Pickens Speedway in Greenville, South Carolina.
Although Ralph did not want his son to pursue a career as a race car driver, Dale dropped out of school to pursue his dreams.
Because he values harmony so highly, Dale Earnhardt, Jr.
will compromise a great deal to avoid any discord or conflict in his relationships. He is attracted to people who have a certain finesse, delicacy and subtlety. appreciates good manners and refinement and is not happy with coarseness or bluntness in a person.
