The 1998 Series Champion!

Special note: Dale Earnhardt Jr. is the first third-generation champion in NASCAR's 50-year history. His grandfather, Ralph Earnhardt, won the 1956 title in the NASCAR Sportsman division, the predecessor of the Xfinity Series, while Dale Earnhardt Sr. won seven NASCAR Cup championships.

"I want to set my own path, that's real important. You have to realize who you are every day. I realize that I'm not Dale Earnhardt, and I don't want to spend the rest of my life just being called Dale Earnhardt's son. I want people to remember something that I did. I just want to make a name for myself. I'm proud of my daddy, and it's going to be a while before someone comes along and does what he's done for the sport. But I still feel I can be successful and that I can have things happen to me and be known on down the road for it."
