This week Dale Earnhardt Jr announced this would be his final season as a full time NASCAR driver. Just hearing that made me a little nostalgic for the days of his old man "Intimidating" his way around the racetrack, winning races and making cameo appearances in movies like The Muppet Movie. HE was NASCAR to me as a child and when his son made his debut I followed closely.I always looked at my dad like a super hero. So I could only imagine what it took for Jr to follow in his father's footsteps. All that being said Zac Brown Band has a new song called "My Old Man" that already had a spot in my heart. THEN I see this video tribute to Dale Earnhart Sr which showcases the relationship between Jr and Sr and I'm man enough to admit I fought back a few tears.
