Brooks & Dunn Recall Earnhardt’s Greatest Comeback

Brooks & Dunn will host a one-hour CMT special featuring a replay of the late Dale Earnhardt’s final laps of the 2000 NASCAR Winston 500 at Talladega, where he won the race after moving from 18th place with only 11 laps to go. Dale Pre-Show: His Greatest Comeback airs Sept. 4 at 7 p.m. ET/PT, prior to the television debut of Dale, the only authorized film about Earnhardt’s life. Produced by NASCAR Images and CMT Films and narrated by Paul Newman, the documentary includes archival race footage, rare outtakes and never-before-seen family home videos. His Greatest Comeback includes interviews with several of Earnhardt’s friends and fans, including Billy Ray Cyrus, Dierks Bentley and John Rich. Following its Sept. 4 premiere on CMT, Dale will air again just twice — on Sept. 5 and 6 — prior to its release on DVD next year.
