Statement from Johnny Benson On Dale Earnhardt's Death

Posted By Terry Callahan
Motorsports Editor, The Auto Channel
"There is really nothing I can say right now. I found out about Dale after I got home (Cornelius,N.C) tonight. I'm very sad. NASCAR lost its greatest driver and probably the greatest driver it will ever have. My heart goes out to his family, his crew, his friends and his fans. There is no better group of fans in our sport and I feel for them tonight also. Our sport will go on, but I don't think it will ever be the same. NASCAR is about family, and I can't think of a time in its history when it needs to pull together like a family. I know everyone on our team and our entire sport sends its condolences to everyone hurting."
