DALE EARNARDT 2001 DAYTONA CRASH - On the afternoon of February 18, 2001, American auto racing driver and team owner Dale Earnhardt was killed instantly in a final-lap collision in the Daytona 500, in which he crashed into a retaining wall after making contact with Sterling Marlin and Ken Schrader. I had tickets for the race, but a nasty case of bronchitis kept me from attending. I lent my photography gear to Ron Petrovich. Although many of his great photos of the cars in the pits are pictured here, I want to say that he wisely chose not to take. any photos of Dale's fatal crash after slamming into the wall.
