They have the same first name, they have famous racing fathers and they’re both on today’s edition of the Dale Jr. Download on NASCAR America at 5 p.m. ET on NBCSN.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. welcomes NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Jarrett to this week’s show.
The pair kick back and have swap stories. One of the most notable tales: Jarrett talked about his father Ned’s friendship with Dale Jr.’s grandfather, Ralph Earnhardt.
Jarrett related how the relationship between his father and Ralph hit a rough patch after they had a dust-up in a Sportsman race. The normally mild-mannered Ned was so angry at Ralph that he refused to attend his wife’s baby shower for Dale Sr. because Ralph would also be in attendance.
Ned Jarrett dutifully drove his wife to the shower, but stayed in his car the entire time.
Catch the outcome of that story, as well as many others on today’s edition of NASCAR America.
