 DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - It's hard to imagine anybody would have blamed Richard Childress for just walking away, vowing never to set foot at another racetrack after losing his star driver and close friend, Dale Earnhardt.
And for a few days after Earnhardt died in a crash at the Daytona 500 a decade ago, that was Childress' plan.
Then Childress thought back to a conversation he had with Earnhardt on a hunting trip, in which each man agreed to keep racing if the other died. Childress kept his promise, and today his team has reclaimed its place as one of the strongest in NASCAR.
That won't make this week's 10-year anniversary of Earnhardt's death at Daytona any easier.
