"Millions of NASCAR fans don't live in cities along the race circuit, so we wanted to be sure that they, too, had the chance to catch this new larger-than-life documentary on the big screen in their home town. This definitive film illustrates the depth of Earnhardt's influence in the racing world and beyond, told in his own words and therefore in a way that no other prior movie can match," said Dan Diamond, vice president of National CineMedia's Fathom.
Dale Earnhardt is widely regarded as one of the greatest NASCAR drivers of all time. In his 22 seasons on the NASCAR Winston Cup Series circuit, he racked up an amazing 76 wins and seven championships, with career winnings totaling more than $41 million. A perpetual fan favorite, Earnhardt was nicknamed "The Intimidator" for his competitive instincts and highly aggressive driving style. Although his death in 2001 on the last lap of the Daytona 500 cut short his legendary career, he will always be remembered for his skill, determination, and passion for the sport.
DALE is executive produced by NASCAR Images' Jay Abraham and Jim Jorden, written by Ryan McGee; and directed by Rory Karpf and Mike Viney. For CMT Films, Jeff Yapp, Paul Villadolid and Lewis Bogach are executive producers. DALE is sponsored by Chevrolet/GM Goodwrench.
