Dale Earnhardt tribute from Control Racing

<pre> ONE QUARTER MILE FROM HEAVEN

Like a guardian angel from four cars back, Watching Michael & Dale Jr. as they circled the track No intention of winning, just holding his place, So proud of his "boys" now winning the race.

We thought it was over, the end was so near. No time for pain; no time for fear. We did not know, as there was no sign, Dale was only one-quarter mile from his final finish line.

Within an instant, NASCAR fans would be facing, An eternal change in their world of racing. He was* one of the greatest; beloved in his sport, With a grand career now sadly cut short.

All the crowd noticed was excitement and debris, But a miracle was happening we could not see. Dale said goodbye through shining metal and chrome, As God gave "NUMBER 3" the checkered flag "home".

But forever in our hearts, and in the scheme of things, We'll picture him circling heaven with black and red wings. Grinning; telling angels...and even the Creator, "Look out over there...here comes the "INTIMIDATOR".

DALE EARNHARDT , YOU WILL BE MISSED All of us at Control Racing are deeply saddened at the loss of a Nascar legend, Dale Earnhardt. Our thoughts are with the Earnhardt family and the many close friends. We can only be thankful to have witnessed such a great driver in our lifetime and pass our memories on to future generations. Dale, you will be missed. Rusty Wise - Owner/Driver Control Racing #49
