Overview

Angel in Black: Remembering Dale Earnhardt Sr. is filled with personal memories of the man known as "the Intimidator" in NASCAR circles. These stories all come from the people who knew him best. Earnhardt was far more complex than those who did not know him well might have expected. His life ended tragically in February 2001 when he was killed during the last lap of the Daytona 500. His untimely death at the age of forty-nine shocked the racing world and the world at large.

In Angel in Black: Remembering Dale Earnhardt Sr., the Intimidator is remembered through hundreds of anecdotes, stories, and insights recounted by fellow drivers, team members, NASCAR officials, and friends and associates. Together they offer a unique and touching reminiscence of one of the greatest and most charismatic race-car drivers ever to climb behind the wheel.

NASCAR's Rookie of the Year in 1979, Earnhardt forged a career that included seven NASCAR national championships, seventy-six career wins, and over $34 million in prize money, more than any other driver has ever won. Earnhardt was as tough as they come behind the wheel, also earning the name of "Ironhead" in part because of his reputation for never backing down on the track, where close calls at nearly 200 miles per hour are frequent and often deadly. Angel in Black also shows the generous, considerate side of him as a friend, colleague, and family man.

An earlier, shorter version of this book was published in 2001 under the title I Remember Dale Earnhardt. About one-third of the material in Angel in Black comes from the first edition, and the rest is largely new material.
