Father’s Day is a day to give thanks to all of the dads that are here, and to remember those that have passed away.
The crash that killed Dale Earnhardt in the 2001 Daytona 500 left a legion of NASCAR fans without their hero, and left Dale Earnhardt, Jr. without his father.
Today, in honor of Father’s Day, the NASCAR Twitter account posted an old video of a teenage Junior interviewing The Intimidator after a win.
Junior grills his dad about the race, but then cuts to the brass tracks and asks if he is going to get some money out of the deal. Dad wasn’t having it:
“I doubt it. You spent enough money down here this week.”
The rest of a video is a touching tribute with clips of Junior and his dad, set to Zach Brown Band’s My Old Man. Great stuff.

RIP Bob Hulse. Miss you dad. I hope you would be proud of what I’ve become.
