Dale Earnhardt Jr. has been the most popular driver in NASCAR over the last 15 years, and his retirement will force his fans to choose another driver to support next season and beyond.

NASCAR on NBC has been doing a contest revolving around the best paint schemes from the 2017 season, and it involved tournament-style voting on each paint scheme. Surprisingly, Matt DiBenedetto won the contest for his throwback for the No. 32 car at Darlington.

DiBenedetto’s upset win raises the question… Will DiBurrito Nation take over and be the next Junior Nation?

Probably not, but one thing’s for sure: if DiBenedetto could race in that sweet throwback every week, he’d have a bigger fan base.

There were many great looking paint schemes this year, but DiBenedetto deserved the win. Junior Nation… you now know who to support moving forward.
