Dale Earnhardt is considered one of the greatest NASCAR drivers of all time.

He won an impressive 76 Winston Cup races and earned 7 NASCAR Winston Cup Championships. While competing in a race in 2001 Earnhardt was involved final lap collision and died as a result. In 2010 he was inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame! One of the finest drivers ever Earnhardt will never be forgotten, though his legacy is being actively continued by his son Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Dale Jr. like his father is considered an excellent driver, he is a two-time Daytona 500 winner and has won the most popular driver award 12 times! The impact of the Earnhardt's on NASCAR is unquestionable and they have legions of adoring fans. One fan however may take the title of ultimate fan, Lisa Asselin has collected a large amount of Earnhardt memorabilia but also has a number of tattoos dedicated to the father-son racing duo!

Asselin has been a NASCAR fan since childhood but her love for both Dale Sr. and Dale Jr. is unmatched. “My house is covered with Dale Sr. and Dale Jr. memorabilia right down to the coasters on my living room table...“I also have Dale Jr. scrubs that I wear to work as I work in the medical field.”

But memorabilia isn't enough, Asselin's admiration for the Earnhardt's needed more permanent recognition so she got a number of tattoos commemorating significant points in the racers lives.
