How does a NASCAR driver get out of a speeding ticket? He puts another NASCAR driver on the phone to the police officer. Jeff Gordon was recently on the Rachel Ray show where he told a story of Dale Earnhardt JR getting him out of a speeding ticket.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. will be parking his #88 Nationwide racer in the garage for a race, and he will be honoring the great NASCAR Hall of Famer, Cale Yarborough, by racing in a 'throwback' paint sceme Valvoline Chevy. He will be racing with this special car September 6th at Darlington Raceway.
It's no secret if you're a fan of Nascar that the sport can be a dangerous one. Dale Earnhardt Jr. knows as well, of course his father, the legendary Dale Sr. lost his life at Daytona back in 2011. Dale Jr. had a close call himself during today's Duck Commander 500 in Texas. The race was rain-delayed yesterday.
Nascar's biggest race of the year took place yesterday. The Daytona 500 is the most iconic race on the racing sport's calendar. The race yesterday was delayed for a while due to adverse weather conditions including a tornado warning.
