I recently sat down with Dale Earnhardt Jr for a lengthy NBC Sports interview. Junior has been voted NASCAR's most popular driver six straight years and is entering his second season with Hendrick Motorsports. With the Daytona 500 only days away, Junior spoke candidly about topics ranging from the day he quit racing, to his obsession with online racecar driving, to why he left the team his father founded, to returning for the first time to the track that tragically took his father's life.
See video highlights below.
