DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Someone placed three white angel figurines at the foot of the Dale Earnhardt statue that stands outside Daytona International Speedway.
Near the statue was a lone yellow flower in a small glass vase, with a black ribbon tied around it. On the ribbon was written one word: ``forever.'' Crew members wore black No. 3 hats as they worked on cars in the garage area.
Subtly but surely, fans and NASCAR competitors remembered the 10-year anniversary of Earnhardt's death, which fell Friday.
Nita Powell, an Earnhardt fan who came to Daytona from Sand Lake, Mich., called it a ``sad day in racing.''
