First of all,I appreciate your list of these great men....
In Respectect to #10..
Dale Earnhardt hated to be called Dale Earnhardt Sr.
He said he was Dale Earnhardt and his son was Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Also,Dale Earnhardt Jr. won Daytona not Daytone.
I plus many other fans would appreciate you updating your facts to honor these great men properly..
