I wrote my column today on Dale Jr., asking readers to put themselves in the shoes of the 36-year-old driver whose father was NASCAR's Elvis.
It's the third column I've written about Earnhardt Jr. in the past month, and probably the last for awhile. But I felt like I had a little more I wanted to say about racing's most popular driver, and so this was the result.
Now I'm sitting here watching my first-ever Daytona 500 on a beautiful day in Florida. How I've missed this event all my life I'm not sure, but am glad to be able to check it off the bucket list.
