Dale Earnhardt's first stint in the 2001 Rolex 24 at Daytona

Dale Earnhardt hops into the Corvette C5-R racer during the 2001 Rolex 24 at Daytona for his first stint during the race. Includes a fantastic "ride along" with him. I'm pretty sure if you look closely, you can see a sly little grin under the infamous moustache, as he was having an absolute blast doing this race. I have no doubt that had he not been tragically killed just a couple weeks later, he and Jr. would have found a way to compete in the 24 Hours of LeMans for sure.I recorded practically the entire 25 hours of live coverage, and now I'm working on uploading them to the web.I'm going through the tapes now, I will upload more as I find clips worth posting!
