During his legendary career, Earnhardt won 76 races, 7 championships and had 468 Top 10s in NASCAR’s top division. He also won 21 times in the Nationwide series.

The Intimidator was inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame in 2010 and into the Cabarrus County Sports Hall of Fame in 2013.

A larger than life bronze statue of Earnhardt stands in a memorial plaza in his hometown of Kannapolis. It is just off Main Street near the Amtrak Station.
