Blink of an Eye focuses on Michael Waltrip and his star-crossed friendship with the iconic driver, Dale Earnhardt Sr. Waltrip had the longest losing streak in NASCAR losing all 462 of his races. On the last lap of the “Great American Race,” Waltrip held the lead with Dale Earnhardt Jr. in second and Sr in third. Instead of making his trademark, ruthless charge to the front, Earnhardt Sr. blocked the field of 40 cars to allow his friend to take his first checkered flag. Unfortunately Waltrip never had the opportunity to celebrate with his dear friend since he was killed on that last lap in what everyone initially thought was a minor crash. Waltrip eventually returned to Daytona in a dramatic, unexpected fashion to pay homage to Earndhardt Sr.
