"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
