Goodyear Made A Commercial About Dale Earnhardt Jr. That Will Make You Fall In Love with NASCAR All Over Again


The storied racing career of Dale Earnhardt Jr has come to an end and the tributes have come in from all areas of the racing community. Goodyear, a longtime sponsor of both Dale Jr. and his father, made a nostalgia inducing commercial for Jr. following him from his early days watching his dad in the garage to his recent retirement.

After a lingering concussion last season, Earnhardt made the decision to take one final lap before stepping out from behind the wheel. Earnhardt, 42, is a14-time Most Popular Driver and has won 26 times in 603 starts over a 19 year career. Though he is stepping out from behind the wheel, Earnhardt will stay heavily involved in the sport he grew up around. Fans will still have a chance to watch Earnhardt race two final times in the NASCAR XFinity Series in 2018.

Racing is in his blood. He may be driving a truck and sitting behind a desk, but Earnhardt’s life will always be near the speedway.
