Earnhardt died instantly on February 18, 2001 during the final lap of the Daytona 500, with his son Dale Earnhardt Jr. finishing in second place.
NASCAR put together a tribute video to honor his legacy that features Zac Brown Band's new song "My Old Man." Just gonna warn you that you'll want to grab some Kleenex before you press play. It's making us all cry, including Dale Earnhardt Jr. himself.
