Imagine you’re Dale Earnhardt Jr. and you’re kicking back with NASCAR Hall of Famer Mark Martin. You’re sitting in a car and he turns on the radio, what do you think he would to play?
If you guessed it was Lynrd Skynrd, Guns N’ Roses or Alan Jackson, well you’d be wrong.
Martin was four buses down from Earnhardt for Daytona 500 Speedweeks and said he had something to show Dale Jr. So, Martin called him over to a new Roush Mustang and had him sit down. Earnhardt thought he’d been called over to check out the new ride. But to his surprise he started playing Gucci Mane.
If it’s not what you expected, you wouldn’t be alone. Earnhardt, Landon Cassill, and many others were taken by surprise as well.
And just in case there were any doubt about the validity, Martin posted to his Twitter account a few recommendations after being asked by a fan.
Apparently Martin has earned some street cred and OG status after the revelation of his musical choices.
We haven’t seen anything from Gucci Mane about it, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled.
