Dale Earnhardt Jr. has certainly come out of his shell. The Hall-of-Fame NASCAR driver has learned to adapt to fame after running in 631 Cup Series races over 19 years. Although Earnhardt Jr. has become more vocal during interviews and has his own podcast, he had admitted he’s never been the life of the party and explained why.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. is one of three to be inducted into 2021 NASCAR Hall
Dale Earnhardt Jr. has already gotten the phone call. Now it’s just a formality. Earnhardt Jr. was notified last year that he was one of three members to be inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame (Class of 2021). The ceremony was scheduled to take place last month, but COVID-19 forced the postponement of the event.
“Without question, the safety of our inductees, our guests and our staff is the highest priority for us,” said Winston Kelley, NASCAR Hall of Fame Executive Director. “The ongoing public health crisis prohibits our ability to plan for and celebrate these honorees’ landmark achievements as originally scheduled to the fullest extent – with their families, friends and fans present – and in a manner that’s representative of their incredible accomplishments in NASCAR and their contributions to the sport.”
