In his many years of racing, the late great Dale Earnhardt Sr. accomplished a lot.
However, one individual who collaborated with him very closely recently drew a comparison to Earnhardt that shocked many NASCAR fans.
Richard Childress mentioned Earnhardt in a recent interview while discussing his RCR team's choice to sign six-time NASCAR Cup winner Kyle Busch.
"I met his gaze and recognised the expression in Dale Earnhardt Sreyes .'s that... He's famished. We will triumph, "said Childress.
Earnhardt worked closely with Richard Childress throughout the bulk of his racing career.
Driving Childress' cars earned him six of his seven Winston Cup victories and a large portion of his 76 victories in the top division.
