Would Dale Earnhardt, a seven-time NASCAR Cup champion hailed by many as the greatest driver in the sport’s history, be able to land a ride in today’s NASCAR? That question caught Dale Earnhardt Jr. by surprise this week. Scott Fowler of the Charlotte Observer sat down with the popular driver for a wide-ranging interview, and stumped the driver with that hypothetical question. “That’s a good damn question,” Earnhardt said. “I’ve never been asked that question before.” According to Fowler, Earnhardt Jr. then paused for at least 10 seconds pondering the subject. To be fair, it is a tough question. Earnhardt, who died in a crash in the 2001 Daytona 500, had incredible driving talent, but he was the quintessential old-school NASCAR driver. He learned the sport on Southeastern dirt tracks, was politically incorrect and liable to say anything that came to mind, never mind the consequences. That’s in sharp contrast to the polished, clean-cut drivers today who must be equally adept at wheeling a race car, entertaining corporate sponsors and dealing with the media. Earnhardt Jr. finally gave this thoughtful answer about his late father. “If Kyle Larson can do it the old-fashioned way, on pure talent — you know he don’t have a pocketbook — I think anybody can,” Earnhardt Jr. said. “I think Dad would certainly have had opportunities to have cleaned up his edge a little bit. Not so much his on-track persona — nobody wanted him to do anything different there. But these days he would have had more tools at his fingertips to help himself be a bit more marketable to sponsors. “But anyway, there are people who want that kind of guy. He might not have had to change a thing. I have to believe, though, that a guy who just has a lot of talent can still make it out here.” Earnhardt Jr. doesn’t think his father would have embraced everything about today’s NASCAR. Many drivers have huge followings on social media, but Junior says his father “hated computers.” “Dad, he wasn’t too into technology. … He was a racer and he worked with racers, and trying to fit technology into your everyday life, accepting all that, maybe he wasn’t quite as open to that,” Earnhardt Jr. said. “He wouldn’t like Twitter. He wouldn’t like social media. … And I bet he still probably wouldn’t have his own laptop.”

Pressed for an explanation by a veteran NASCAR journalist during his media availability on Friday at Talladega Superspeedway, the third-generation driver made light of his unique lifestyle.”Sometimes, I just forget,” the 14-time most popular driver award winner said with a laugh. “I have a gas tank at the house, so I don’t buy gas from the store. We buy gas in bulk, it’s a little cheaper.”This was a tactic taught to him in 2003 or 2003 by veteran NASCAR racer turned television analyst Kenny Wallace who said it was both more affordable and easier to live in obscurity that way.”He was like ‘get you a gas tank and buy it in bulk, it’s cheaper and that way you ain’t got to go anywhere to get gas, you just pull out of the driveway, pump it right there and get on down the road’ so that’s what I do with gas,” Earnhardt said.

Photo by LAT Photographic The two-time NASCAR Xfinity Series champion said he usually asks his friends to foot the bill when they go out to eat, something that isn’t a problem because he’s always ‘good for it.’ In fact, the affable veteran said he intentionally leaves his wallet at home roughly 50 percent of the time.”It’s a pain in the butt because I go over to JR Motorsports and I don’t have my key to get in the door and have to get somebody to come down there and get me in,” Earnhardt said. “Which is a little embarrassing for the boss or the guy that owns the building. But, you know, I don’t really spend money. I don’t really go buy stuff.”Usually, when I’m out and about I am going to do something as far as a responsibility with my team, going to the team meeting or something like that, I’m not really hardly in a store to physically purchase anything.”I guess that is why I keep forgetting it is because I don’t hardly need it.”It must be nice to have ‘people’ for that kind of thing.

“I’ll be happy to tell you guys what we’ve got planned when the time is right,” he said of an effort to test before returning to competition. “We do have a good plan and NASCAR has been very easy to work with. They made a new rule for situations for drivers like this to allow a driver to get back on the track in a bit of an open test without any data acquisition or anything like that on the car. We’ll get out there and spend half a day somewhere running some long runs and getting a good idea of whether I’m ready to go. “I feel 100 percent; I don’t think we’re going to have any issues. If all that goes as planned, we’ll go to the Phoenix test which is a NASCAR test in January and will be plugged back in to work just right where we were when we started last year.” Earnhardt is the son of seven-time champion Dale Earnhardt. In addition to competing for Hendrick Motorsports in NASCAR’s premier series, he co-owns JR Motorsports, an XFINITY Series organization which will field four full-time teams in that series in 2017. JRM also fielded an entry in the Camping World Truck Series in 2016 for driver Cole Custer.

“No, no,” Dale Jr. said. “He hated computers. I remember when I was 15 years old and the biggest NASCAR racing game ever had just come out. There had never been anything like it. All my buddies were playing, but you had to have a computer to play.

NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr., who will return to Cup racing in Sunday’s Daytona 500 after missing 18 races last season with a concussion, said his doctor told him that no two concussions are alike. He also talked about his wife’s preference on his beard.

Earnhardt said that if he were to win only one race in his final regular season as a Cup driver, he would want it to be the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He has never won that particular race, one of NASCAR’s most iconic.
