On today’s Dale Jr. Download, which runs from 5 to 6 p.m. ET on NBCSN, Dale Earnhardt Jr. welcomes NASCAR vice chairman Mike Helton.

Earnhardt has known Helton his whole life, and while the two consider each other good friends, Junior told one story where that friendship was tested a bit. 

Here’s a brief segment of what Junior had to say about Helton:

You can be an incredible friend, but the funny thing is when you need to chew somebody’s ass, you can get that done, too. There was one time you had to get after me pretty hard at Bristol Motor Speedway. … We had a car explode a brake rotor on the race track and threw brake parts all over the place.

There was about 15 laps to go and we were running under caution. Typically, NASCAR red flags the race and I was wanting them to do that, but they didn’t. I don’t see the brake stuff, everything’s great, I’m raising hell. This was in the Bud days. Tony (Eury) Sr. was on the radio and I think he was encouraging me a little bit. Our spotter came over and said they want you and Tony Sr. to come to the truck after the race. I stopped talking immediately.

That’s when I learned that Mike Helton and the guys in the booth listen to the drivers and I was thinking, ‘Oh, man, they heard me.’ … We go up in the hauler and me and Tony Sr. still feel like we’re in the right and that we’re going to tell ‘em this and tell ‘em that, and that we’re going in there thinking we’re going to tell Helton and he’s going to say ‘you’re right, we should have red-flagged the race.’

As soon as Helton’s head comes into the door jamb, Tony Sr. and I both started pleading our case. And Mike Helton said, ‘Both of y’all hush. Y’all aren’t going to talk, I’m going to talk.’ You were so mad, so angry, and when I realized how mad you were, I was so disappointed in myself for disappointing and angering him. … I realized now what I had done.’”

Tune in to hear the rest of the story on the Dale Jr. Download (the above portion starts around 51:00).

And then stick around for the following show, IndyCar Live, from Indianapolis Motor Speedway from 6-6:30 pm ET with Kevin Lee.

Tyler Reddick to make second Cup start next weekend at Kansas Speedway

Leave a comment

Reigning Xfinity Series champion Tyler Reddick revealed Wednesday on NASCAR America that he will make his second Cup Series start next weekend at Kansas Speedway.

Reddick will again drive the No. 31 Chevrolet for Richard Childress Racing. He made his Cup debut in the No. 31 in the Daytona 500. He started 39th and finished 27th due to a crash.

The news comes after Reddick won last weekend’s Xfinity Series race at Talladega, his first of the year and his first with RCR.

Reddick leads the Xfinity Series in top fives (seven) and top 10s (eight) and leads the points standings over Christopher Bell and Cole Custer.

“That stuff helps a lot toward … helping me get back into a Cup car and it’s really cool to go to Kansas and be able to make my start there,” Reddick said.

Reddick has two Xfinity starts at Kansas. He started on the pole and finished second in 2017 and finished fifth there in 2018.

“For now this is the main focus, the main announcement,” Reddick said when asked if there were plans for more Cup starts. “(Kansas) is a place I’ve had my fair share of bouncing off the wall … but it’s a really good race car. Hoping to try my luck with this new aero package, see if I can run it wide-open right against the fence and see how fast I can go.”
