We set out on a quest to see some places and things that Dale Earnhardt frequented and used back in the day. Primarily the Richard Childress Racing Museum (which is also the former RCR shop itself) that houses tons of race used cars of Dale's...many of which are in untouched race used condition! We also go to Spartanburg SC to check out the former Bud Moore Engineering shop where Dale raced out of in the early 80s. PLUS we even found the original Rod Osterlund race shop where Dale won his first championship in 1980 out of! What are these places looking like today? Lets find out!

    Sorry about the break in uploads guys! It’s been a series of unfortunate coincidences that made multiple attempts to film different videos turn out completely useless. BUT. Now I am back in Pennsylvania to film reaction videos with my dad and the real Uncle Rob driving the Turbo Yukon “Uncle Rob” build 🤟🏻 If you’ve ordered merch it will ship in the next week or two once we’re done traveling. We appreciate your patience! stapletonautoworks.com

      You’re in my hometown Spartanburg at the end. They were supposed to make the old mill the South Carolina racing museum at one point but nothing came of it. The old mill is by bud moore shop you were at

      So, do they have the 3 set's of "18 degree cheater head's", that Dale Sr was busted usin, back in 91'? My dad is who did the work on them, for the GM company. I still have a set of them, in my garage, right now. There were only so many set's ever made(11 set's, if I remember correctly.). The bottom of the head's, are at the 18 degree's, while the top of the head's, are still at the old 23 degree setting's. I graduated, back in 96', so I wasn't able to work on those head's, when he first got them. After I graduated, I ended up as the head machinist of the shop, until his Agent Orange Poisoning caused him to go into respiratory arrest, the night before Thanksgiving, back in 02'. He survived, until just over 2 year's ago. But, due to the stress of the shop work, he had to sell the shop. And, I wasn't able to take over, due to the lack of ability to run the office. I needed 2 more year's, to learn that. But, he was told, that if he didn't sell it right away and remove the stress, he was going to die for sure, again. And, most likely not be able to be revived the next time...

    From 1989 thru 1993 I ran the Ford training center in Winston Salem. I had to drive past RCR everyday. I would stop at the garage and look around. Richard was always very friendly. There was a giant bear in the lobby that must have been 12-13 feet tall.

    My wife and I were lucky enough to have Danny "Chocolate" Myers show us around the shop and give us a verbal history of each car. The stories that he had were amazing and I left there with a different outlook on Dale Sr. . I wasn't a fan of him during his racing days, he wasn't my cup of tea as it were, but after watching a biography piece about him and what he did away from the track it changed how I felt about him. The one thing that effected me the most was the "Lucky Penny" car. Chocolate Myers told us the story we both had tears in our eyes then looking at him he had tears as well. Dale is missed RIP Dale.

    • Brian Pair

      From what I understand that lucky penny is still on the dash at the Daytona museum. Or do they just keep the car for a year? I've heard stories from many people who knew Dale and interacted with him, he was in my opinion the greatest driver in history but an even better man.

      Tm racing "dale wasn't my cup of tea as it were" 😆 Sound like the kind of soft weenie head Dale Sr. Loved to run off the race track. RIP DALE Nascar isn't worth watching now, now we have Bubbah Wallace seeing nooses when he ties his shoes. Damn shame what the sports become. Need more We Earnhardt's and Petty's .

    I had the privilege of interning for RCR Graphics in 2016 and I actually put together the 2 pieces of gray foam board with the info about Neil Bonnett. The info was already typed up but I actually formatted and produced the pieces. It was a small contribution but still a great honor to do that.

    Very cool to see you & Logan doing some exploring and checking out the Intimidator's past history! I always enjoyed watching him drive a race car, made it look so easy to do. At least he left this mortal earth doing what he loved so much, racing stock cars. He was a definite BAMF. It's my personal opinion that, had he not been killed in that horrible crash, that he would have won an 8th championship and then hung up his driving gloves and helmet to enjoy some semblance of "retirement" in 2001. I still have a VHS videotape of Dale's memorial service. He still is missed 20 years later. Keep up the quality videos you've been doing, they are great! Thanks man!

    I remember going to DEI about 20 years ago and on one of the roads close to the area there was this private property with white fencing around the whole place and i looked though the fencing and seen a yard full of fiberglass Ferrari and Lotus bodies just sitting around i always wondered what else they had there it was pretty cool though

    Thanks man! We share the same passion for Dale, Richard and the history of them both. I’ve been to the RCR museum and it was a very emotional experience that not a lot of people would understand but I could see that you totally get it. Thanks for showing the other shops Dale raced out of, I’d never thought of trying to find those.

    Dale was my icon my hero I looked up too. I cried 3 days after he hit that wall and even did a memorial poster for him. I was 9 years old I could not believe my hero was gone just like that in a blink of an eye. Thank you man for doing a video like this. Brought a tear to my eye.

    It's nice that RCR made the building an exhibit in and of itself, like you said. The Luminas were pretty much the last nascars that I cared for the looks of, but you go back 10 years and there's something really special in the 3rd gen Chevelles and 4th gen Cutlasses and such in stock car guise...Those and the early 80s nascar Regals and Monte Carlos. Also sad to see other important motor racing places become vape shops or fall into disrepair, especially considering what a badass Bud Moore was, not just in terms of success in NASCAR but being pretty much synonymous with Fords efforts and success in the original Trans Am with the Cougars and then Mustangs. I guess that's the inevitable wheel of time turning and dropping the chips were they lay.

    I was at that Daytona race when Dale blew the tire going into turn 3 in the last lap. There used to be 1st come, 1st served seating in turn 3 that you'd stay up all night waiting in line to get tickets for. When his tire blew they were close enough to the wall that we couldn't tell who's tire it was (pieces of it flying up into the stands) until we saw him backing out of it and heading to the outside of the track going into 4 to slow down. The place erupted. Not sure if they were cheering for Derrick Cope at that point, or for Dale's situation. A memory I'll never forget for sure!!

    I liked all the 90’s and earlier cars, they had an identity to them, and everyone was racing, you know, all the GM’s, Pontiac, Buick, etc. The 2000’s had some cool hats and t-shirt designs though. That was a really cool shop. Sad about the run down shop, could be a great place for a drag team or fab shop.

    It was good to see the 98 Daytona Win Monte again. I was there in 1998 when he finally won the 500. It was Nascars 50th Anniversary, the 40th Daytona Race Track Anniversary, Dales 20th attempt to win the Daytona 500 and my first visit of a race track. I will never forget that day being a long time Earnhardt fan. One of the best days in my life. Thankfully i did not go to Daytona in 2001. It was devastating enough to watch it on TV. Life is no longer the same. The joy is gone.

    Great video ! I toured the shop back in 2013 and loved it . I said the extract same thing about that tire lol . I couldn’t believe they kept it and was blown away . You didn’t show the hand written contract between Richard and Dale by the office though . I thought that was cool .

    When visiting another city or country, every educated person must visit a museum. Visiting museums is very useful and fascinating. A love for the "eternal" and "beautiful" is awakened in a person, the beginnings of greatness and respect for history are inculcated. It is impossible to turn the excursion into something banal, ordinary and boring. The person should be a comprehensively developed person, cultured, educated, critically and analytically thinking, with knowledge of foreign languages. It is the knowledge of a foreign language that opens wide prospects for a person to realize his/her creative potential, career and financial growth. I would like to recommend the practical training course by Yuriy Ivantsiv "Polyglot Notes. Practical tips for learning foreign language", where you can find lots of useful information how to learn a foreign language quickly. Learn a foreign language and realize your creative potential on an international scale! The international community needs creative ideas! Thanks to the author of the channel for a very fascinating tour!

    That museum is pretty cool, kind of reminds me of the Shelby shop/museum in Vegas. Also, on that abandoned shop wall (28:41), you can actually still read the bottom word "Motorsports", though the "motor" parts is real faint. That's pretty cool.

    Richard was a decent driver but he had a skill that no other driver ever had, And that's the ability to admit that another driver had more talent,that's what made RCR so great he had great business sence and a even better eye for talent, and fake had talent beyond any driver I've ever seen,but he didn't have the big money, and when Richard and dale teamed up it took Nascar by surprise

    I remember specifically hating the Peter Max car because it was so different than what he usually ran (even special cars)...and I thought it was odd that it resembled *sort of* of Jeff Gordon's rainbow paint scheme that Earnhardt fans made fun of so much. I also remember it took me forever to find a 1:64 scale version for my collection. Ended up finding 2, 1 Revell and 1 Action outside of Indy before one of the Brickyard races.

    Just to back you up and "clear the air" about the interior and stripe colors on the Earnhardt cars, it is in fact, called Poppy Red, it also goes by the name Calypso Coral, Competition Orange, and Competition Red, the paint code is from the1965 Ford Mustang, color code.M1730. That same color/paint code was also used on 1966-67 Ford Trucks, 1968 Mercury Comet, and several other Ford cars up until 1979. In 1983, Chrysler used it as a Fleet color and called it "Red." Look it up and compare Red to Poppy Red. Side by side one does look red and the other one does look orange. Its even been compared to Chevrolet engine orange. Keep bringing us these interesting vlogs.

    • Grizzly_Gunner
      Grizzly_Gunner

      They used that shade of orange because of the fact the TVs at the time had a hard time showing the color red so race teams would use orange instead of red. Read into the history of the Marlboro F1 cars and their color schemes

      Not as big as an RCR or Dale Sr as you are, but this was enjoyable. When I moved to Jackson, MI in 2000, I felt I couldn't live in a NASCAR town and not have a driver, so when 2002 rolled around, and my son was about to be born, I picked this rookie named Jimmie Johnson. Maybe you've heard of him.

    I think it was during the 90's that Nascar had limits on how many tires everyone could have. You'd often see when someone would wreck other teams would be down at their pit trying to buy their tires they wouldn't be needing.

    • Brian Booher

      The only Tire rule ever remember in the cup series was it 1985 when you can only change two tires under caution flag . You can change 4 under green flag. They allowed 4 tire stops at talladega an Daytona under caution for Daytona .There wasn't really a tire rule I can remember except in 85. Goodyear was only required to bring like 1280 tires or something like that and the way that it equals would be so many sets of tires to each team. a lot of times Goodyear had more than the required number that away that didn't run out but in certain situations they only showed up with the 1280 tires or whatever. The one I remember is the 88 southern 500 Darlington. they would be shortages of tires and when somebody would fall out they would all go run to that team to bye their tires that didn't happen a whole lot but it did happen several times

    The tire within a tire is still cool. They used those at Daytona Atlanta and Talladega . Way back in the 80s and 90s. I was fortunate to be friends with Steve Grissoms nephew Alan. Getting to see the race from Steves pit was amazing. Those tires. With the safety bladder inside. If the pressure equalized inside and they both had the same pressure. That caused a really terrible vibration. I remember one time the lug nuts were huge. After the tire changes on Steve's car. A crew member swept all the lug nuts up. My younger brother got them. That fool got back home and sold them all. They were all blue. He sold them as Dale Earnhardt lug nuts. Somewhere im sure there's a Grissom lug nut posing as a blue Dale lug nut. Great video by the way. What would this world be without racing? Don't answer that. I don't even want to know. I've always loved racing. Its just sad that never again another Dale and Jeff will ever be. Its funny those two were rivals. But secretly they were hunting buddies and friends. Your either s Dale fan or Jeff fan. Remember those days. There wasn't a fan of both. If upu loved one you freaking had hate in your heart for the other. Dale and Jeff. That's what racing is for me.

    I went to the RCR museum back in March and that car you can sit in was shut down because of covid and you had to wear a mask in there. But beyond that the museum was exactly the same it was amazing lol

    A.K.A hatchet man. Your appreciation and knowledge of history is astounding. This video was just as good as some documentaries I have seen. Thanks for tour. Chances are I will never make it there.

    I have to agree with you about the Lumina era of race cars. Also my favorite. Days of Thunder had Luminas immortalized.
