It seems like only yesterday when we got the news that legendary NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Sr. had passed away from his injuries suffered at the 2001 Daytona 500 but that was nearly a decade ago.

Many NASCAR fans grew up loving the “Intimidator” and one female fan in particular by the name of Lisa decided to pay tribute to Dale Earnhardt Sr. by getting a detailed back tattoo showing him up in Heaven.

She goes by the handle of NASCAR Girl on Twitter and provided a photo of the ink showing Dale Earnhardt Jr. walking up some heavenly stairs into space. At the top of the stairs, an image of his father is seen standing waiting for him:

    I used to be a NASCAR fan back in the day when they actually had some resemblance to cars you could buy (yeah, I’m old), but the whole thing became unattractive when the cars began to make no sense. Carburetors? Really? Isn’t that something that’s done in historic/vintage racing? Hide in the garage when it rains? The only other motor sport that does that is drag racing and when you’re making 8,000 hp vs. 700 it makes sense. “Stock” cars aren’t stock, are grossly overweight and can hardly be controlled on a dry track, so of course you have to stop when it drizzles, let alone rains.

    The other main reason that drove me away was all the swooning over DE, Sr. It was beyond the pale when he was given the nickname Intimidator. If you watched any of his racing “strategy” it mostly involved crashing whoever was in front of him. If he couldn’t get around you cleanly then he ran up your backside and put you in the wall. I lost count of the number of races I turned off the TV where he caused a crash. My nickname for him was The Initiator. And he ended up being killed while trying to block another driver in order to help a teammate. How sadly ironic.

    I’m sure he appreciates his likeness catching some “evening shrapnel” every once in a while.
