2000 Cracker Barrel 500 Finish 2001 NASCAR Daytona 500 Last 5 months ago   04:13

The final 7 laps of the 2000 spring race at Atlanta, with Bobby Labonte approaching ever closer to race leader Dale Earnhardt before moving right up to the #3 Chevy's back bumper with one to go. A classic finish ensues.

When Petty retired, it had been 6 years since his last win, and his average finishes were like 20th or worse. When Earnhardt died, he was still a contender, still running up front with the guys!

if Bobby had a set of nuts he would've dumped the POS.

Back then, I was a huge Bobby Labonte fan (still am, technically), and my brother-in-law lived and breathed Dale Earnhardt. We had a friendly rivalry going on about it, imagine us watching this finish. Bobby would go on to win the championship that season. For Christmas, my brother-in-law gave me a framed picture of a dejected-looking Bobby with the caption "I just got lucky." The first race of the following season was Dale Earnhardt's fatal crash. My brother-in-law took down all his Earnhardt posters, and NASCAR was never the same after that for either of us. Meanwhile, having just come off the 2000 Winston Cup and the most respected driver in the garage dying in an accident, I would give practically anything to know what was going on in Bobby's head after that. He was never the same, either.

So similar to Harvick-Gordon in 2001 I believe.

It’s really something crazy reading the comments here and some date back to 11 years ago... just wild. Bobby was my favorite driver and you gotta appreciate the respect he had for Dale by racing him so damn clean at the end he easily could have pushed him into the fence, but Bobby wasn’t that kind of driver, and Dale usually didn’t rough this Labonte up either... haha can’t say the same about how Dale raced Terry tho hahahaha

Dale's final Atlanta win, his last non restrictor plate win, and his last at any 1 and half mile track. Final win at Talladega later in 2000.

Anybody else see the back of Dales car jumping around coming off of 4? Bobby had the best car and would have smoked anybody else , lots of respect between these two.

This was the first NASCAR race I ever watched and I've been following it ever since. I became an Earnhardt fan after this finish. 3:20
Is that Ray Evernham also in the booth at 0:21?
Monty Montana
If that was the other way around Earnhardt would have wrecked him
One of the greatest finishes of all time, and it was between the top-2 guys in the points of that season. Amazing. Great driving by Earnhardt, great driving by Labonte, this is NASCAR racing at it's finest.
A 500 mile race decided by less than 2 feet...amazing.

Dang it, Bobby!
