19b  Description

An image taken by an anonymous amateur photographer during the 2001 Daytona 500, twenty-five laps before the crash that killed Dale Earnhardt Sr.

Pictured is car number three (Dale Earnhardt Sr.) in the center background, framed by car number eight (Dale Earnhardt Jr.) and car number fifteen (Michael Waltrip, the winner of the race).

The race that ended in tragedy was also one of racing dynasties. The photograph above includes two major racing families, the Earnhardts and the Waltrips. Michael Waltrip’s brother, former nascar driver Darryl Waltrip, was the head commentator of the race. This was Michael Waltrip’s first Daytona 500 win.
