'DALE' to Make Its Television Debut on CMT in an Exclusive Limited Run

ONLY AUTHORIZED FILM ON RACING LEGEND DALE EARNHARDT TO PREMIERE ON TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4 AT 8 PM ON CMT

LOS ANGELES, July 13 -- He was the one they called the "Intimidator." His fans knew him by his famous No. 3 black Chevrolet and fellow racers knew him as the man to beat. Dale Earnhardt is known as one of the most legendary drivers in the history of NASCAR, and his life both on and off the track is featured in the new two-hour CMT feature, DALE, premiering Tuesday, Sept. 4 at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT on CMT.

DALE will encore at 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 5 and Thursday, Sept. 6, with those being the only additional scheduled airings of DALE on CMT prior to the film's release on DVD next year.

Produced by NASCAR Images and CMT Films, DALE is the only authorized film on Dale Earnhardt. Narrated by Paul Newman, this portrait of Dale Earnhardt includes archival race footage, rare outtakes, never-before-seen family home videos and interviews with his closest friends and family, toughest competitors and most avid fans, illustrating the depth of Earnhardt's influence in the racing world and beyond. DALE was produced with the support and endorsement of Richard Childress Racing, plus the Earnhardt family, corporation, and team.

"Dale's legendary persona inspired people who had never even met him," says wife Teresa Earnhardt, "and this film will keep inspiring those who see it and help to carry on his legacy."

"Dale Earnhardt will always be one of the most dominant figures in the history of NASCAR," said Richard Childress, president and CEO of Richard Childress Racing, Earnhardt's team owner and best friend. "He meant so much to the millions of his fans throughout the world and I think DALE will give everyone a unique perspective on him both as a racer and as a human being."

Prior to airing on CMT, DALE was launched theatrically in February 2007 and premiered in select cities on the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series(TM) circuit. DALE will be available on DVD first quarter 2008.

Dale Earnhardt is widely regarded as one of the greatest NASCAR drivers of all time. In his 22 seasons on the NASCAR Winston Cup Series circuit, he racked up an amazing 76 wins and seven championships, with career winnings totaling more than $41 million. A perpetual fan favorite, Earnhardt was nicknamed "The Intimidator" for his competitive instincts and highly aggressive driving style. Although his death in 2001 on the last lap of the Daytona 500 cut short his legendary career, he will always be remembered for his skill, determination and passion for the sport.
