Dale Earnhardt Jr. Shares Hilarious Text Message From His Mother


Dale Earnhardt Jr. missed out on making history and finished in ninth place at the Brickyard 400 on Sunday. But of course, the performance was good enough to make his mother proud. In fact, it reminded her of the late Dale Earnhardt Sr. and she laid out why in an adorable and hilarious text message.

Dale Jr.'s response was just as funny.
