Earnhardt was killed in an accident on the last lap of the 2001 Daytona 500. The speedway considered various ways to mark the 10-year anniversary of Earnhardt's death and decided the moment of silence was the most appropriate.
Track president Joie Chitwood says track officials are working with the broadcast partners to go silent on the third lap of the Feb. 20 race. Fans will also be asked to stand and raise three fingers on that lap.
Chitwood says officials decided the on-track tribute was more appropriate than pre-race activities.
