Not going to lie, it was very cool to get to interview Dale Earnhardt Jr. He’s a big part of why I have this blog and why I love NASCAR. I can’t even process the fact that I spoke to him and said, “Hi Dale” like I knew him or something. I spoke words to him and he spoke words back to me. He said, “Thank you” to me after I said,”Thank you” to him, when it was all over. Crazy, right?

I wanted to have this big cathartic moment but I didn’t. He may be famous but at the end of the day he’s just a dude like the ones you know. A dude with a high profile job. That being said, he didn’t disappoint me. He gave some great and sort of surprising answers that I think you’ll find interesting.
