Dale Jr talks about Mom, Dad and racing
Dale Earnhardt Jr talks about his life growing up and how he got his start in racing
Every now and then someone will say to me that the only reason Dale Jr is racing is because his last name is Earnhardt. That he had his racing career and everything handed to him.
I donâ€™t believe that for one second. Watch this video and youâ€™ll understand, and please share it with anyone else who might need to see it.
â€œWhen the house burned down we didnâ€™t have nothing,â€ said Dale Jr
That was when Junior and his sister Kelley went to live with their father and Teresa. â€œThe last thing she wanted was 2 instant kids,â€ Junior said of his stepmother.
Earnhardt had to learn on his own how to race and live on no money.
â€œI never saw the silver spoon. Dale Earnhardt Jr had to work for what he got,â€œ said Don Hawk, former president of DEI.
