Default Dale Earnhardt Jr. Explains Why He Is A Gamecock Fan

Pretty neat USA Today article on how Earnhardt Jr. became a Gamecock Football fan:

Quote:
CHARLOTTE — When Dale Earnhardt died in a crash at the 2001 Daytona 500, he left behind a race team with hundreds of employees who suddenly lacked direction.

His son, Dale Earnhardt Jr., could tell his Dale Earnhardt Inc. co-workers needed to boost their spirits. So prior to the 2002 season, he placed a call to then-University of South Carolina football coach Lou Holtz.

Quote:
The topic was raised during a question-and-answer session with fans because one of Earnhardt's supporters was a Clemson graduate who wondered how NASCAR's most popular driver became a Gamecocks fan
Who asked that question, Dabo?

Leave it to a clempson graduate to be so obsessed with the University of South Carolina that he asks about that when given a chance to ask a NASCAR driver a question.

I love the part about Spurrier sending a unrequested autographed football. So Spurrier. Also, funny about the Clemson grad pushing the question. I liked the article. Thank you for sharing.

Why would Spurrier just send an autographed football randomly not once but a few times to Jr? Things that make you go hum...

Yeah, it was a good article. Apparently, Jr. is a little more friendly with the media than he used to be. Nice to know he's a Gamecocks fan.

Actually, during the Gator bowl he was on the sidelines. I remember the sideline reporter talking to him and he was saying how he wanted to keep tabs on the Carolina game.


He was on the sidelines due to sponsorship agreements.

I found Jr's house on Google maps. It is on Bullet Lane in Mooresville, NC. Pretty nice spread he has with the dirt track and Whiskey River.
