Racing Legends: Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Written by Toby Christie
He’s a 15-time most popular driver in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, and he was the face of the sport through the last two decades.
Despite having the weight of the world thrown onto his shoulders after a tragic finish to the 2001 Daytona 500, this driver went on to record 50 NASCAR National Series wins through from 1998 to 2017.
He was fast on the track, but Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s legacy is more than just his race results. His popularity was a combination of his famous last name, a clean driving style, a humble personality and philanthropy.
