Dale Earnhardt Net Worth is $70 Million (at death)
As for the day, Dale Earnhardt net worth is estimated at $70 million, and this means that if he was alive, he would be one of the richest race car drivers in history. As any other racer, Dale had to make his peace with the fact that at one point or another, even the best of us are meant to lose. In one of his interviews Dale has said: “you win some, lose some and wreck some”. That’s just the way life is… for most people. But Dale was not just like most people. As I have already mentioned, he was one of the wealthiest race car drivers in the world and this was for a reason: he was also widely considered one of the best NASCAR drivers of all time.

Throughout his career Dale has not had too many chances to experience what it feels like to do the best you can just to come second. As he has once said: second place winner is just a first place loser – and Dale was not a loser.
