We’ve flipped the calendar to December and we’re once again faced with the daunting task of filling Christmas stockings. Thankfully, the folks at Dirty Mo Media have an entire store stocked full of great potential gifts. Take a look at our top picks to help complete your Christmas shopping:
Start with the Dirty Mo Original collection. Choose from shirts styled by Dale Jr. himself.
Or your very own Dale Jr. Download IYKYK shirt, Kyle Petty approved. Want to show your Door Bumper Clear's biggest fan? Pick that design. Trying to stay warm this winter? Grab the softest hoodie you'll ever own.
Have you recently moved onto Speed Street since the show joined Dirty Mo Media's lineup? Then that's the shirt for you, in either white or black.
Now would also be a good time to get a head start on your New Year's resolution to “read more books” and check out these titles from our very own authors:
Back in May, Dale Jr. and Mike Davis made the big announcement on the Download that Dale’s first children’s book had been released. “Buster’s Trip to Victory Lane'' centers around Buster, a rescued race car who will inspire children of all ages to face their fears and persevere.
Jr. Motorsports CEO Kelley Earnhardt Miller her life growing up in NASCAR and her rise to being a successful business leader in her 2021 book “Drive: 9 Lessons to Win in Business and in Life”.
Over the years on The Dale Jr. Download, we’ve hosted some guests with stories that far exceed what can be captured in a podcast episode. Check out these selected titles from some of our favorite guests:
2022’s Download season started off with some of racing’s heavy hitters, including two-time Indianapolis 500 winner Al Unser Jr. Unser was on the road promoting his new book “A Checkered Past,” which was co-written with New York Times Best Selling Author Jade Gurss. Coincidently, Gurss was the one-time public relations specialist for Dale Jr. and also wrote the books “In the Red” and “Driver #8.”
As the Indianapolis 500 month rolled around, the Download hosted a four-time champion at the Brickyard, the legendary Rick Mears. His biography “Thanks” is a must-read for any open wheel racing fan.
Devotees of the Download will never forget Randy Lanier, who came into the Bojangles studio this past August like a whirlwind and redefined the term “epic tale”. His story of drug smuggling to fund his high-dollar racing habit was one of the most popular episodes of the podcast to date, and his new book “Survival of the Fastest” will give listeners even more eye-widening details.
In August, Dale Jr. asked the question that shook the world: “What the f*** does Kyle Petty got to do with this?” The clip went viral and even led to the production of a popular T-shirt (see above). But the following week, Dale felt bad about bringing his longtime friend into the spotlight and wanted to give his incredible new book a plug. “Swerve or Die” details Kyle’s life growing up in one of racing’s most famous families and his career on and off the racetrack.
Most racing fans associate Dale Earnhardt Sr. with the legendary Richard Childress Racing black No. 3 car. But in August of 2021, the Download hosted a man credited with giving Dale Sr. his first big break in Cup racing, legendary crew chief Will Cronkrite. His book “I Was a NASCAR Redneck” tells the story of how their partnership came to be, as well as many other riveting tales from his time spent in motorsports.
In May of 2021, Dale Jr. had the opportunity to sit down and talk with one of his racing heroes: Bentley Warren. Listeners can learn more about one of open wheel racing’s greatest drivers in “Wicked Fast,” which is a comprehensive outline of Bentley’s storied career.
Back in 2019, Dale Jr. and Mike Davis sat down with one of the wildest figures in short track racing history, Florida’s Gary Balough. The interview focused on his career in racing and life as a drug smuggler, but only skimmed the surface. Read the book that made Dirty Mo Media say, “we need to get this guy on the Download.”
