Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s first memory of the Washington Redskins was on Jan. 30 1983, when Pro Football Hall of Famer John Riggins dashed past the entire Miami Dolphin defense for a 43-yard touchdown in Super Bowl XVII.
The Redskins, of course, would win that game by a final of 27-17 — the first of three Super Bowl victories.
Junior talked about the play and his continued support of the Redskins with CSN Washington:
“First game I really remember watching was the Super Bowl against Miami,” Earnhardt Jr. told CSN Washington. “When John ran around the edge to put them ahead– that was just such a unique play. Even at a young age, I knew there was something special there. I was like ‘That’s my team, those guys are cool!’
“I’ve always been a fan, and always will be.”
