Dale Earnhardt Jr. only has two races remaining in his full-time Cup Series career, and while he’d like to leave on a positive note, he and his fans both know by now that a victory is unlikely this season.
Earnhardt has a great sense of humor, and it was on full display during last Sunday’s race at Texas Motor Speedway.
Early in the race, crew chief Greg Ives asked Earnhardt if the track bar was helping him. Earnhardt quickly replied, “I don’t know, let me ask it. Track bar, are you helping me?”
Later in the race during a red flag, Earnhardt had some fun with the camera crew by spraying the camera with water to cool it off during the blistering hot day in Texas.
Earnhardt won his first career Cup Series race at Texas Motor Speedway, and while he couldn’t duplicate that success in his final appearance, he did seem to enjoy himself.
