People still flock to remember 'The Intimidator'

I remember, in college, once joking (somewhat darkly, I now concede) that when "Dale Earnhardt dies, all the flags in this state will be held at half-staff." Of course, I made this comment thinking that this would take place around, oh, 2040 or so.

Hard to believe, but it's been some nine years since "The Intimidator" died in a crash on the track. But fans still flock to Dale Earnhardt, Inc., in Mooresville to pay their respects.

Yesterday (Feb. 18) was the 9th annual Dale Earnhardt Candlelight Tribute, and has a photo gallery from the event. This was the first time that the tribute was held inside the DEI facility.
