Dale Earnhardt Jr. at the age of 41 has had quiet a career so far. Dale has won 2 Daytona 500's one in 2004 and another one in 2014. He won the two biggest races of his life exactly ten years apart. He has won the most popular driver thirteen time in a row starting in (2003-2015). I believe the only reason that he is the most popular driver is because of his name he has not won to many races but the ones he has one supposedly make him great. Dale is known to have a net worth of 300 million dollars. So he is possibly the most expensive man ever in the history of NASCAR. Dale has 26 wins in his 18 year long career, so really no that many wins. He also has 249 top ten appearances in his sprint cup series career, along with 13 poles. Dales early career started when he went to high performance school when he was 17. Also at the same time he was going to school he was still running a full time street stock dirt car. Dale moved up through modified's and he was discovered and brought into the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.At that time he started moving up through the NASCAR ranks until he got into the highest category which is what he is currently in known as the Sprint Cup series. Dale is an OK driver that got into NASCAR because of his daddy being good and they were hoping that he would be just half as good as his dad. Which no one in the history of NASCAR will ever be able to do what Dale's dad did in such a short amount of time.

Clint is going to take over the number 20 car that Tony Stewart is driving this year. He will be very good when he switches to the number 20 car, he will probably be one of the best races out there next year.
