Dale Earnhardt Jr. is one lucky sonofagun.
Junior thought he’d take the opporunity of using a weekend off from the usual NASCAR challenges by doing some fancy dancing in a Le Mans Series car. He was doing great during practice — until he wrecked the car and it erupted into flames.
He suffered second degree burns to his chin, and the inside of both legs, but should be okay to race in next weekend’s Nextel Cup event in New Hampshire. Naturally, the accident reminded many of the fatal crash of Dale Sr. during the last lap of the 2001 Daytona 500.
Thankfully, history didn’t repeat itself this time.Powered by Sidelines
