Unfortunatly living where I live in upstate New York, I've not met any big time NASCAR drivers. I've seen Dale Earnhardt, and I met Andy Brass when he was driving for Bigfoot. (He made one truck start back in 1995). When Dale was injured at Talladega in summer of 1996, he had a pre-sceduled appearence at the Rhinebeck fairgrounds. Even with the injuries he had, he still did the appearence. When we drove up, the line was way way too long, and had been closed off already. So, we took a little ride, up into Columbia county. It's a good thing we did, as he was running a little late, and we passed his limo. It was long and white, with a 3 sticker on the side window. It was later confirmed by a friend of my brother's who had gotten there much earlier, that it was indeed his limo. He took a picture of the limo, which we saw, which was pretty much absolute proof!
My brother's friend Tom took these photos that day. Apparently Dale was in so much pain he didn't say a word.http://public.fotki....e_earnhardt_at/
I was about 30 feet away from the King last summer at the Kyle Petty Charity ride in Saratoga Springs when I took this photo.
