Eearnhardt's loyalty


I have enjoyed Motor Sport for the last four years, and would like to thank you for your increased interest in and reporting of US racers. Your recent articles on the glory days and stars of Indy are greatly appreciated.

I was especially moved by your obituary of Dale Earnhardt in the April 2001 issue. Obviously he was a favourite here in the US, but I was touched to learn he was a star over there, too. Even though he started his own team, Dale continued to drive for the man who was there for him from the beginning, Richard Childress. That is a testament to his loyalty, and reveals the kind of man he was. Thank you for your kind words.
