I can't wait for the Superbowl to get over. Why, because Speedweek is almost here.:3gears:

Some here are not "sport nuts", so I wanted to post this here for the viewing pleasure of everyone.

Well with speekweek almost upon us, I wanted to post a little something in rememberance of the best driver Nascar has ever seen, Dale Earnhardt Sr. IMO, he made this sport what it is today and it will never be the same without him.

I can say, on lap 3 of every race, I hold up 3 finger the entire lap in rememberance of SR.

There are many great drivers in this poem and I hope one of your favorites are in it.

The Heavenly 500

The Heavenly 500 was just getting started,

an all-star race for the racing departed.

Heroes of the track, with nerves of steel,

and sitting on the pole, a cat named Neil.

Adam Petty was there, with his beautiful smile,

Kenny Irwin was determined, to finish in style.

Lee Petty was glowing, with that grandfather pride,

with Davey and Clifford, both in a new ride.

Fireball Roberts floated in on a cloud,

while Tony Roper waved to the heavenly croud.

Morrosso and Nemecheck, then Tim Richmond appeared,

Kulwicki strapped in while the racing fans cheered.

The honorary starter, for this heavenly race,

Ralph Earnhardt was chosen with a tear on his face.

But the red flag flew: just before it begun,

and every eye was wide open looking at the sun.

A last minute entry was the cause of the delay,

while the fans were instructed to kneel down and pray.

The heavens turned back and the clouds turned dark.

The lightning was briliant, the thunder did bark.

Then out of the rumble, for all there to see,

the clouds they all formed a black number three.

The heavenly fans then erupted with pride,

and welcomed this star that recently died.

With a bolt of lightning Dale Earnhardt Sr arrived,

as he sttod before Jesus, his spirit revived.

Jesus hugged his precious child, then revealed his perfect plan.

" I brought you home to let you know I am your biggest fan!".

The intimidator was needed for this Heavenly Race,

leaving all your earthly fans with honor and grace.

Ralph Earnhardt stepped forward; embracing his son,

then whispered in Dale's ear, lets go have some fun.

As Ralph stood proud the green flag flew,

the cround went wild and the tensions grew.

And just like salvation the admission was free,

as every eye focused on the black number three.

When the checkered flag dropped, no dry eyes remained,

it was a photo finish, as Jesus explained.

He said "There are no loosers on this heavenly track,

this is a welcome home party for the man in black."
