Dale Earnhardt Jr. joins NBCSN broadcast booth for Talladega, Martinsville


Dale Earnhardt Jr. won’t be back in a race car this year due to his continued recovery from a concussion. But the sport’s loss is NBCSN’s gain.

The 13-time most popular driver will join the NBCSN booth as a guest during the broadcasts of the next two Sprint Cup races at Talladega Superspeedway and Martinsville Speedway.

Earnhardt, a six-time winner at Talladega, will join announcer Rick Allen and analysts Jeff Burton and Steve Letarte. Letarte is a former crew chief of Earnhardt.
