DJD: Junior Takes A Stand
By Mike Davis
Occasionally Dale Jr. needs to unload -- or Download, if you will -- and it's at those times his podcast hits on all cylinders. It's why we started The Dale Jr. Download 301 episodes ago.
Dale Jr. specifically asked for a guest-less show this week so that he could devote his time to two news developments:
The aftermath of the incident at Ace Speedway involving JR Motorsports late model driver and 2017 CARS Tour champion Josh Berry, and 2018-19 CARS Tour champion Bobby McCarty. The incident led to a one-week suspension for Berry.
The announcement that NASCAR is returning to Nashville but not the track Earnhardt and many others have campaigned for.
The podcast is worth a listen for myriad reasons, but for my money none bigger than Dale's answer to this question at 39:07: Knowing what you know now -- that Josh would be suspended one week and effectively eliminated from 2020 CARS championship contention -- would you still have wanted Josh to retaliate? His answer was shocking.
