DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - After 462 races, a sad-sack losing streak that had spanned 16 long years, Michael Waltrip's first trip to Victory Lane - at the Daytona 500 no less - should have been the happiest moment of his life. It was, for 15 or so minutes, anyway. Then he learned Dale Earnhardt, his boss and friend, had been killed on the last lap of the race. As the 10-year anniversary of Earnhardt's death approaches Friday, those left behind - and NASCAR itself - are still recovering. By Auto Racing Writer Jenna Fryer. Sent Monday.
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Michael Waltrip still remembers the first time he slammed into a SAFER barrier.
