Dale Earnhardt Jr. will make a brief return to NASCAR racing Friday night in the Xfinity Series race at Richmond Raceway (7:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN).
On this week’s “Dale Jr. Download,” Earnhardt discussed how he secured the services of his former Cup spotter, T.J. Majors, who is now the spotter for Joey Logano.
Earnhardt went straight to the Captain.
“I emailed Roger Penske myself,” Earnhardt revealed. “Directly to Roger. He goes, ‘Oh yeah, no problem.’ Cause T.J. said, ‘You’re probably going to have to go all the way to the top for this one, for me to be able to come spot for you.’ They don’t want him going to another team and spotting.”
