SPEED to air Earnhardt Special
SPEED will air a one-hour biography on Dale Earnhardt, seven-time champion and inductee to the inaugural NASCAR Hall of Fame class, Friday at 11 p.m. ET following NASCAR Camping World Truck Series coverage from Dover. 

Brian Williams, a personal friend of Earnhardt’s and host of NBC Nightly News, will narrate the special that features a never-before-aired interview with Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the days following his father’s death in February 2001.  The program also includes interviews with Richard Childress, Kevin Harvick, Brian France, Mike Helton, Tony Eury Sr. and Tony Eury Jr., as well as perspective from some of Earnhardt’s fans.
