ESPN publishes a tribute to Dale Earnhardt

ESPN has released a "Hall of Fame Collector's Issue" devoted to the career and Hall of Fame induction of Dale Earnhardt. The magazine -- more like a soft cover book that ESPN has labeled a bookazine -- is called, "Dale Earnhardt: The Legend Lives."

It is 100 pages and has an array of amazing photographs. There are some pretty cool sections -- one is a compilation of quotations from NASCAR's all-time greats, the other is compilation of Earnhardt's best quotes.

The feature articles include one about his pit crew, one about Dale Jr. and one in which Jimmie Johnson laments that he was never able to race against Earnhardt.

Here's more in a release from ESPN:

As NASCAR prepares to welcome the inaugural class into its Hall of Fame, ESPN pays tribute to Dale Earnhardt, the sport’s greatest hero, with a collector’s edition commemorative bookazine: “Dale Earnhardt: The Legend Lives” – available nationwide March 30 for $9.99.

The 100-page book celebrates every step of Earnhardt’s rise through NASCAR’s ranks, from turning a wrench on his daddy’s late-model sedans to showing his youngest boy, Dale Jr., the quickest way around a track. The stories and rich photography show sides of Earnhardt rarely seen by fans, told by those who knew him best: his son, Dale Jr., his team owner, Richard Childress, his gas man, Chocolate Myers, and NASCAR’s CEO, Brian France; along with a team of the most respected motorsports writers in the business—Ed Hinton, Ryan McGee and Marty Smith, to name a few.
