Sunday's Trivia Question
In honor of the late, great Dale Earnhardt, I'll make this question a tribute to him as we mark the fifth year since he lost his life on the last lap of the 2001 Daytona 500.
Dale Earnhardt is Daytona Internation Speedway's winningest driver of all time. He won here 34 times over his legendary career. How many Daytona 500's did he run in before he finally won in 1998?
I'm heading to the backstretch soon to watch the race, so I'll post the answer. You can get it by hitting "continued."
Dale owned the speedway, but had the worst luck in the 500, narrowly missing on a trip to Victory Lane several times. Over those 19 years, he amassed so many other wins at the track -- while winning seven Winston Cup points championships -- that nobody else is even close. As I noted in an earlier trivia question, Jeff Gordon and Bill Elliott have the most wins at the speedway among active drivers. They're tied with 11 wins each.
