Dale Earnhardt Jr. Plane Crash Photos Show NASCAR Legend Truly Lucky To Be Alive
Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports
Federal investigators have released close-up photos of Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s plane crash on an Elizabethton, TN. airport runway on Aug. 15, 2019. The NASCAR legend is fortunate to be alive...

The NTSB says in its final report the cause of the crash was pilot error ... with investigators writing they believe the plane was coming in too fast to land safely.

In the report, officials say the pilots also didn't brake properly given how fast the plane was traveling into the runway ... and that all led to the violent crash.

Dale Jr. says he suffered a bruised back in the landing ... but otherwise, he and his family had no issues post-wreck.

i mean... it is a plane crash, and that's serious and all, but the fact that it burned after they walked out isn't exactly a near-death experience.
