Driver reaction to Dale Earnhardt's death
Feb 21, 2001, 11:45 PM

Jeremy Mayfield, driver of the No. 12 Ford: "I don't know what to say. said Jeremy Mayfield, driver of the No. 12 Ford. "This is incredible, just incredible. I think everybody is just in shock right now. I didn't see much of what happened up there ...

Jeremy Mayfield, driver of the No. 12 Ford:
"I don't know what to say. said Jeremy Mayfield, driver of the No. 12 Ford. "This is incredible, just incredible. I think everybody is just in shock right now. I didn't see much of what happened up there (in the fourth turn). After the race was over, I heard things didn't look very good but, man, Earnhardt. You figure he'll bounce right back. Your first thought is, 'hey, he'll probably come back next week at Rockingham and beat us all.' My heart goes out to Theresa and Dale Jr., Kerry and Kelly and Taylor Nicole."

John Andretti, driver of the No. 43 Dodge: "I feel like somebody kicked me in the chest," he said. "I'm stunned. And I'm really sad. That's about all I can say."

Kyle Petty, driver of the No. 45 Dodge:
"No matter where it happens, or how it happens, or even how prepared you think you might be for it, losing somebody close to you hurts," he said. "My heart just breaks for Theresa and the family."

Johnny Benson, driver of the No. 41 Pontiac:
"There is really nothing I can say right now. I found out about Dale after I got home (Cornelius,N.C) tonight. I'm very sad. NASCAR lost its greatest driver and probably the greatest driver it will ever have. My heart goes out to his family, his crew, his friends and his fans. There is no better group of fans in our sport and I feel for them tonight also. Our sport will go on, but I don't think it will ever be the same. NASCAR is about family, and I can't think of a time in its history when it needs to pull together like a family. I know everyone on our team and our entire sport sends its condolences to everyone hurting."
