"Little E" is a class act

I think you are right about him being a class act.  I read somewhere that
Dale Sr. gives all the credit for that to Lil E's mother, who, as you know,
was the second Mrs. Earnhardt, and Teresa is the third.

Possibly Dale was not with Lil E a lot in the early years of his growing up.
Dale had to struggle to make it in racing; he did not have it handed to him.
But he has settled down a lot, and seems to be a real family man now and
take an interest in all of his kids' lives.  And I notice that he usually
takes the opportunity when talking to include things about Kerry and Kelly,
his two oldest.

Lil E is very fortunate to have Dale Sr. as a Dad, and very fortunate to
have the backing from him and his corporation to get a very good start.  But
he has talent and will establish his own identity and make it on his own.
It doesn't matter if he drives for his Dad or someone else, he will make it.
But he should be proud as punch, and seems to be, that he has the
relationship he does with his Dad.  What happened in the IROC race and the
interview after brought tears to my eyes.

People who have that kind of relationship with family are very, very
blessed!

Once Gordon got to the big time, he kicked his parents out of the country!!!

So far I haven't seen anything that leads me to believe that DE Jr. is other
than a class act.  I don't know if any of you will agree w/ me, but maybe Dad E
gave him the start but Jr. took advantage and has established his own
personality as a gen X driver.  He also strikes me as a guy who will go his own
way.  I think he and Dad E have not had the greatest of relationships and
there's alot of water under that bridge.  I like Little E's enthusiasm and hope
he can get w/ a team not associated with his dad and still do well.  That will
be the only way to show he "Earned" it.

He's a whole lot more public with his drinking than his dad. He killed 4 cold
ones in victory lane yesterday and was looking for more.

Very fortunate is exactly right.  Do you see the double standard here?

Young guy.  Winning a lot.  Huge cash cow for a ride.  Championship.

Where are all the FAGS?  Same thing applies here.
