"He was with me tonight. I dedicate this win to him."--Dale Earnhardt, Jr. After winning the Daytona 500 a year after his father died racing on the same track.
Racing is in the blood. Perhaps more than any other sport, stock car racing boasts a tradition of dynasties, multiple generations of superstars. From the Pettys and the Jarretts to the Earnhardts and the Labontes, this action-packed, photo-filled tribute honors those who keep it all in the family. Here are the grandfather, fathers, sons, and brothers who have made--and continue to make--motorcar history on the high-banked tracks of the Winston Cup Series. Among those who consistently deliver heart stopping performances in this thrilling dangerous sport are the France family, whose paterfamilias "Big Bill" France founded NASCAR, the Waltrips, Bodines, Andrettis, and many others.
