Dale Earnhardt Jr. only has two more races before his storied career comes to an end. Oddly, various tracks feel the need to give him gifts as he heads into retirement. Usually the gifts are strange (i.e. miniature horses) but in New Hampshire , he received a gift he thought his wife would like: a long musket. For some reason, Earnhardt was shocked she didn’t want to hang it in their home.
Earnhardt’s wife is an interior designer so he assumed she would think this gun was a interesting piece of antique decor.
And that is why a very expensive old gun is sitting in a box in Dale Earnhardt’s garage.
