Best wins, IMO
BRISTOL, 197. Only his 16th career start.
Led 164 laps, fantastic win.
43The only lap that pays the money is the last one.44
PHOENIX, 199. Psyched his competition out beforehand with lots of good ol' fashioned trash talking. Epic duel between him and Martin.
CHARLOTTE, 1993. Pissed off, yo! Penalized a lap, Dale took it personally. The penalties kept coming. But he still won.

BRICKYARD, 1995. Second NASCAR race on the hallowed ground of the Indy Motor Speedway. Narrowly beats Rusty Wallace.
DAYTONA, 1998. Nobody won more races at Daytona International Speedway than Earnhardt. But, he seemed cursed during the Daytona 500, losing the 500 about every way imaginable, including running out of gas, losing an engine, and in 1990, cutting a tire while leading going into Turn 3 on the last lap. Finally, after a 59 race winless streak, the 1998 Daytona 500 was his year. One of the best moments in NASCAR history.
TALLADEGA, 2000. Greatest victory, and also his last. Parting the field like Moses parted the Red Sea, Sr. charged ahead from 18th place.
