Blink of an Eye excerpt: Michael Waltrip's 1990 Bristol crash

By

Blink of an Eye, the new documentary from Emmy-winning director Paul Taublieb, brings to life the triumph-to-tragedy “odd couple” friendship between perennial NASCAR underdog Michael Waltrip, and the sport’s icon, the late Dale Earnhardt.

The film draws upon rare archival footage and new interviews with Waltrip, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Ty Norris (former President of Dale Earnhardt, Inc.), and NASCAR Hall of Famers Richard Petty, Richard Childress, and Michael’s brother, Darrell Waltrip. Click here for RACER’s full review.

Ahead of the film’s one-day-only cinema release on September 12, RACER is pleased to be presenting a series of daily excerpts. In today’s clip, Michael Waltrip recalls his horrific accident at Bristol in 1990 – and an encounter with Dale Earnhardt in the medical center afterwards.
