A&E Home Video has another of its terrific NASCAR DVD collections out and we have five sets to give away to worthy OnPitRow.com readers. Dale Earnhardt Sr. fans especially need to jump on this one. Here’s what A&E has to say about their latest masterpiece.
He was called "The Intimidator," "The Man in Black," and "Mr. Restrictor Plate." He was a champion, a mentor, a hero, and a true American icon who was perhaps the greatest driver of all time—Dale Earnhardt—and the mention of his name provokes powerful emotions in race fans around the world.
On Oct. 28, A&E Home Video and NASCAR® Media Group unveiled DALE EARNHARDT 10 GREATEST WINS, a commemorative souvenir that provides both a tribute to the icon’s competitive fire and a showcase that displays the essence of a hard-driving, world-class champion. Featuring the most memorable wins of the driver that defined NASCAR and etched his place in history, this unprecedented five-disc collector’s set is a must-have for any racing fan.
