The scoop: In only two years on the NASCAR circuit, the son of racing legend Dale Earnhardt Sr., who was killed in a crash last year, has won $10 million -- and a fervid fan base. "At almost every autograph session we get at least one gal that comes up and is either weeping or shaking or unable to speak," says Jade Gurss, friend and coauthor of Driver #8, Earnhardt's memoir of his rookie season.
In his own words: When it comes to racing, he says, "part of me has to have that risk and that danger and that element of not knowing. That sets me aside from most men."
The ideal woman: "She has to be real tough and career-oriented, but I also want her to be with me and want to be at the races. If I see just a hint of a lack of interest, it won't work."
What a catch: Says Earnhardt, "I've done my own laundry since I was 10."
