Calling Dale Earnhardt an American motorsports legend is nearly an understatement. The seven-time NASCAR champion tied fellow great Richard Petty for the most championships ever, and his tragic death in the 2001 Daytona 500 sent shockwaves through the international motorsports world. Earnhardt drove for Richard Childress Racing from 1984 to his last race in 2001, and now owner Richard Childress is auctioning off a car driven by Earnhardt in 1996 — the first time he's ever parted with an Earnhardt car from his personal collection. The car ran short track ovals from 1996 to 1999, with the highlight being driven to victory by Earnhardt at Rockingham Speedway in '96. Childress is donating all proceeds from the auction to coronavirus relief efforts, which is what motivated him to let the car driven by his late, great friend go.
