I AM DALE EARNHARDT
I AM DALE EARNHARDT originally produced as a 2015 Spike
TV documentary, digs deep beyond the legend to reveal the complex
figure at the core of "The Intimidator." He was an idol to millions,
but a villain to others; a working man's hero, but also a darling of
Madison Avenue; a husband, father and friend, but also a solitary
man who few really knew. His tragic death on the final lap of the
2001 Daytona 500 sent shock waves through the nation and
immortalized him as one of the greatest stars NASCAR has ever known.
With in-depth and insightful interviews with some of the
biggest names in the sport, unforgettable highlights from
Earnhardt's greatest moments on the racetrack, and rare footage of
Earnhardt's life off the track, I AM DALE EARNHARDT is an
up-close-and-personal look at the man behind the iconic mustache.

Tim Richmond, To the Limit
Natural. Rock star.
Outsider. In the 1980s, race car driver Tim Richmond lived his life
the way he raced cars – wide open. Born into a wealthy family,
Richmond was the antithesis of the Southern blue-collar, dirt-track
racers who dominated NASCAR. He also was a flamboyant showman who
basked in the attention of the media and fans – especially the
attention of female admirers. Nevertheless, it was Richmond's
on-track performances that ended up drawing comparisons to racing
legends. And in 1986, when he won seven NASCAR races and finished
third in the Winston Cup series points race, some believed he was on
the verge of stardom.
But his freewheeling lifestyle soon
caught up to him. He unexpectedly withdrew from the NASCAR racing
circuit, reportedly suffering from double pneumonia. In reality, the
diagnosis was much more dire: He had AIDS. Richmond returned to the
track in 1987, but he was gone from the sport by the next year as
his health deteriorated. He spent his final days as a recluse, dying
on August 13, 1989 at the age of 34. Emmy Award-winning filmmaker
Rory Karpf examines the life and tragic death of one of NASCAR's
