And then I then I hear about Dale. And I just couldn't believe it happened. It was just something that is Iraq. The whole world still does. I mean, I don't think there's a day that goes by in this sport if you're a NASCAR race fan That you keep talking about Dale Sr. And you don't really talk about what happened. But you talk about all the good things that Dale Sr did. Well, del Signor did this or Dale Sr one that ordeal. Did that, or Dale led the way in this It happens all the time.

It's ah, That was a sad day, while a lot of people may not realize because you Rusty Wallace and Dale Earnhardt fierce competitors on the racetrack, But you guys had a great relationship off the race track we did.
