Indianapolis, IN - Eddie Cheever Jr. statement regarding the death of Dale Earnhardt:

"I have known only two individuals whose very presence transcended the fact that they were extraordinary racing drivers: Dale Earnhardt and Ayrton Senna. No one else could fill a room like they could. I met Dale just two years ago but I feel like I have lost a member of my family. There is truly nothing you can say -- it is an enormous loss. The last words that Dale said to me were: "I'll race you next time, and we'll have just as much fun." I'm incredibly sad that that won't happen. My heart goes out to all of Dale's family, friends, and fans at this very difficult time."
