Dale Earnhardt Sr (49-years-old): April 29, 1951 – February 18, 2001

Racing legend Dale Earnhardt won the Winston Cup Series on nine occasions and was the Daytona 500 Champion in 1998. But just three years later at Dayton he was on his last lap when his car veered down, clipped another and went into the wall at 160km/h and was declared dead a few hours later.
