    A fine Daytona afternoon, the season just begun.
    My boys were running one and two, and I was having fun.
    I probably could have won the thing, but something held me back.
    I was busy watching Dale and Mike and holding off the pack.
    I was looking toward the front and not really to the rear.
    Something tapped me on my bumper, but still I had no fear.
    I thought it might be Sterling, I knew he was nearby.
    When Sterling smells the checkered flag, I'll tell you he ain't shy.
    I slipped a bit, I turned the wheel. I sensed something very odd.
    It wasn't Sterling's tap I'd felt. It was the tap of God.
    "Not now," I said. "I'm racing hard. There's work still her to do."
    "Your time is up," He whispered low, "So say a quick adieu."
    I wasn't really ready, but I didn't have a choice
    He'd tapped me on the bumper and I'd heard His hallowed voice.
    So I did as He instructed. I just packed it in and left.
    I guess it can't be helped that I left some of you bereft.
    Did you see those birds upon the wall as the scattered in the breeze?
    Will it make it any easier to know that one of them was me?
    There was also Davey, Dad, and Neil, and some other guys I've known.
    And they all came to Daytona just to escort me on home.
    Hey congratulations Mikey! You made a worthy run.
    I wish you many, many more. Your wins have just begun.
    All that fun you had in Victory Lane, I was proud as proud can be.
    Did you see a seagull flying low? Yea, Mikey, that was me.
    So, friends and fans and family, don't mourn me for too long.
    Get on with life, take care fo things, be brave and proud and strong.
    I'll surely iss you every one. About that I will not lie.
    But as long as you remember me, I didn't really die.

    Most of the racing fans know that I'm a fan of DODGE Racing, but I saw this and thought I'd share it with the Earnhart fans here.

    Not to tarnish the Memory of the Late Great Intimidator....but I missed the above line earlier and it made me think of Daytona Qualifying this year!

    It's Strange that it mentions Seagulls at Daytona and Mikey Waltrip in the same sentence.....

    Perhaps that Was Dale Sr. telling Mikey..."You're doing a great job!"

    Sorry but I didn't tape the qualifying...

    Waltrip was completing his first qualifying lap...Came across the line and *SPLAT*

    Big dent in the Left Front side...and of course DW and the boys had to play it in Slow motion afterwards!

    There might be something linked to it on FOX Sports...
