Ralph Dale Earnhardt Sr. (April 29, 1951 -- February 18, 2001) was an American professional stock car driver and team owner, who raced from 1975 to 2001 in the former NASCAR Winston Cup Series (now called the NASCAR Cup Series), most notably driving the No. 3 Chevrolet for Richard Childress Racing. The third child of racing driver Ralph Earnhardt and Martha Earnhardt, he began his career in 1975 in the World 600. Earnhardt won a total of 76 Winston Cup races over the course of his 4 decade career, including four Winston 500s (1990, 1994, 1999, and 2000) and the 1998 Daytona 500. He also earned seven Winston Cup championships, a record held with Richard Petty and Jimmie Johnson. His aggressive driving style earned him the nicknames "The Intimidator", "The Man in Black", and "Ironhead". He is regarded as one of the greatest drivers in NASCAR history. Note that there were three distinct releases of this diecast (see the stock photos via the Production List). To date, we have not seen any differences in market value between the three releases. Dale Earnhardt Sr drove this iconic Peter Max paint scheme (designed by artist Peter Max) in the Winston All Star race at Lowe's Motor Speedway on Saturday May 20, 2000. Earnhardt Sr started the race in 12th position, and finished 3rd. His son, Dale Jr, started the race in 5th position, and led only two laps, but those were the final two laps of the race to earn the victory in his Budweiser Chevrolet.
