Dale Earnhardt Jr. Pumped To ‘Beat Dallas’

NASCAR’s biggest Redskins fan had a timeless reaction to Washington’s 2014 schedule.

We reached out to Dale Earnhardt Jr. on Twitter to ask what games he was excited about. Junior responded within five minutes with a choice that would be appropriate every single year.

That’s the kind of answer we’d expect from a lifelong fan of the Burgundy and Gold.

Earnhardt, by the way, is racing this weekend in Redskins Nation at Richmond International Speedway in the NASCAR Toyota Owner’s 400.

You’ll remember that he got the wheels going — no pun intended — on Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III being the pace car driver on Saturday, and Earnhardt will personally give Griffin III a tour of the place prior to both of their drives.

He confirmed this with us, again via Twitter, this morning:

Maybe Griffin will be Earnhardt’s new lucky charm? That’s yet to be seen, but be sure to check back with Redskins.com for coverage of Saturday’s race in Richmond and Griffin III’s big day.

Thanks for being a fan, Dale.
