Dale Jr Holding Off Danica’s Advances — For Now

Filed under: Danica Patrick 


Danica Patrick has brought many new fans into NASCAR, People who have never seen a NASCAR race before are now tuning in to cheer for Danica and the No. 10 Chevrolet. She has the fastest growing fan base in all of NASCAR

Patrick won the Most Popular Driver Award in the Nationwide Series for 2012. She is already appealing to fans to vote her into the Sprint All Star Race for 2013.

But Patrick is not as popular as NASCAR’s 10 time Most Popular Driver, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Yet. Earnhardt still leads in souvenir sales and fan surveys, but Patrick is closing.

The Most Popular river Award is determined by a fan vote, and it may come down to who’s fans are most enthusiastic about actually voting.

Acording to Earnhardt he is very proud of his awards in the past. He described last years’s as a great Christmas gift from the fans.

Should either driver score a race win that will surely drive more fans to vote for them, so in reality winning counts, even in a popularity contest.

The award has been given since 1956 and past winners include Dale Earnhardt, Darrell Waltrip and Richard Petty.

  8. If it wasn’t, for Dale Sr being so popular Jr wouldn’t ,have any fans at all . As Ernie said he can’t talk and he certainly can’t drive. Jr is riding on Sr’s coat tails.

  10. There can be no assurance that such statements will prove to be accurate, and actual results and future evwnts could differ
    materially from expected results. The man, 33, was arrested on
    Saturday after his girlfriend iincome tax za came home
    from work to be done is to search for hat trusted site where breeding andd selling of
    pit-bull puppies happen. 6 percent from a year earlier in the first quarter.

Tell me what you're thinking...
