NASCAR WCUP: Statement from GM regarding Earnhardt death

Posted By Terry Callahan
Motorsports Editor, The Auto Channel
"All of us at Chevrolet and General Motors are truly saddened by the passing of Dale Earnhardt. As we all know, Dale was more than just a legend. He was an individual respected by all who ever came in contact with him…family, friends, business associates and fellow competitors.

Dale was also more than just a Monte Carlo race car driver. Like all drivers we considered him a valued member of our own family.

To that end, our Chevrolet and General Motors family offersour heartfelt condolences to his wife, Teresa, and the rest of his family. Our thoughts and prayers are with them and the Richard Childress Racing and Dale Earnhardt Incorporated organizations."
