Dale Earnhardt Jr. has a lot of NASCAR fans. These days, he has become such a mature and articulate man that he has earned the respect of many people outside of racing, too. On Sunday afternoon, during the AdventHealth 400 Cup race, he tweeted the following:
.@KurtBusch takes bad teams and makes them better. He takes teams that didn’t even exist last year and makes them better. It’s a rare quality even some of Nascar’s greats didn’t possess.— Dale Earnhardt Jr. (@DaleJr) May 15, 2022
Shortly after the tweet, Kurt Busch brought his No. 45 Toyota over the finish line first. We can now add ‘intuitive‘ to Dale Earnhardt Jr.‘s attributes, as well.
