After debuting on Spike TV back in March, the documentary I Am Dale Earnhardt debuted on DVD this week from Paramount Home Media Distribution. Dale Earnhardt was one of NASCAR's most beloved stars, and this new documentary will give his fans even more insight into his incredible life. In case you missed the premiere on Spike this spring, we have a contest lined up where fans can win this new DVD.
Following his tragic death on the final lap of the 2001 Daytona 500, Dale Earnhardt was immortalized as the greatest star NASCAR has ever known. I Am Dale Earnhardt digs deep beyond the legend to reveal the complex figure at the core of this icon known as "The Intimidator." He was a hero to millions, but a villain to others; a working man's hero, but also a darling of Madison Ave.; a husband, father and friend, but also a solitary man who few really knew.
With in-depth and insightful interviews with some of the biggest names in the sport, unforgettable highlights from Earnhardt's greatest moments on the track, and rare footage of Earnhardt's life off-the track, the film is an up-close-and-personal look at the man behind the iconic mustache. Among those interviewed for the film include some of the biggest names in NASCAR such as Jimmie Johnson, Darrell Waltrip, Rusty Wallace, Jeff Gordon, Richard Childress, and his son, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Here's what Dale Earnhardt Jr. had to say about the documentary in a statement from earlier this year.
"I've got many fond memories of my dad, so being able to share some of those memories in a project such as this was a privilege. This film captures everything about him -- the dad, the racer, the businessman, the friend, the polarizing figure, everything. I think fans -- even longtime Dale Earnhardt fans -- will find themselves learning new things about my dad by watching this documentary."
