Jeff Gordon's first time driving in the rain - Dale Earnhardt comments
If you watched the film, things did not go well around 1:30, but now that
Jeff Gordon drove the night shift in the rain in the car that won the Daytona Rolex 24
with no wipers,
Dale Earnhardt is no longer making a comment...........for more than one reason.

"I looked at the car and the wheels were still on it.....
The starter still worked, and I said: Give me my car back!"
Pointing out that the track was dry that day....... lol
but some people don't quit easily....including Dale Earnhardt and Jeff Gordon.

During the 1997 Daytona 500 Dale Earnhardt gets into the wall, bumps Jeff Gordon and then gets hit by Dale Jarret. He gets sideways as a result and flips the car then gits hit while upside down by Ernie Irvan. Car is a mess. Last thing we see is Dale getting out of the #3 and getting in the ambulance. Come back from commercial and they show a graphic for cars out of the race. Dale is not on the list and the announcer must notice because you just hear a few second of silence. Then next thing we see is Dale back in the car on pit road and him barking out orders to his pit crew. meanwhile, the pit crew is taping parts of the car back on in order to satisfy NASCAR rules. Then we hear Dales explain how he wound up back in the car.
Most men would have called it a day after going through such an accident.....Not Dale!
