Default Dale Earnhardt Jr.

The Most Popular Driver in Nascar the last 7 years...

need anything else to say?

ok i will

i think he is a little overhyped i dont think he has the talent his father had just like the kyle petty/richard petty thing i dont think the offspring of successful nascar drivers do as well as thier parents BUT i do think that the offspring of unsuccessful nascar drivers do better than thier parents.

NEVERTHELESS!!!!!

Jr. has won at Talladega a record 4 straight times has won the daytona 500, has finished third in points the last time we ran under the old points system, and is a two time Busch Series Champion
he has talent there is no disputing it but he is not as successful as other drivers

Winning 18 races takes no talent, right? NOT He's just going through a slump, like Jeff Gordon and Kurt Busch did last year. His average finish has improved since the crew chief change.

Slumps generally don't last for more than a season. He has been in a slump for several seasons.

Winning ANY Cup race takes more talent than most folks can even imagine.
