CAR--NASCAR-EARNHARDT-CHILDRESS
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Nobody would have blamed team owner Richard Childress if he left racing after the death of Dale Earnhardt, his close friend and championship-winning driver. But Childress didn't back down. After weathering the emotional aspects of Earnhardt's death in 2001 and a few years of poor performance by his team on the track, Childress today runs one of NASCAR's strongest teams.

CAR--NASCAR-EARNHARDT-HARVICK
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Asked to slide into Dale Earnhardt's car days after his death, Kevin Harvick felt uneasy about replacing the Intimidator. Now, a decade after Earnhardt's fatal crash at Daytona, Harvick has embraced his role and was comfortable enough to deliver an emotional speech to his Richard Childress Racing team. By Mark Long.

CAR--NASCAR-DALE EARNHARDT
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.

CAR--NASCAR-EARNHARDT-SAFETY
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Michael Waltrip still remembers the first time he slammed into a SAFER barrier. Expecting a brutal hit that might have ruined his upcoming vacation, he instead glanced off the wall and didn't feel a thing. The impact-absorbing walls are just one of the multiple safety innovations NASCAR has introduced in the decade since Dale Earnhardt's death, a wake-up call that has made the sport much safer.
