FORT WORTH-DALLAS (February 18, 2001): Statement regarding the death of Dale Earnhardt from Eddie Gossage, General Manager of Texas Motor Speedway:

"The death of Dale Earnhardt is heartbreaking for millions of racing fans around the world. I, too, am heartbroken. Athletes in other sports would be wise to follow Dale's model of what a champion is supposed to be. He had great dignity - both on the track and off.

"I know people would question why people risk such great odds to race automobiles. But I'm certain Dale would tell you that he lived his life to the fullest and his life was better for being a participant in the arena. While many people may not understand this, Dale understood better than anyone.

"We want to express our sympathies to Dale's wife Teresa, his children, his mother and the rest of his family as well as Richard Childress Racing and the people of Dale Earnhardt, Inc. We will remember them in our prayers."
