Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s Mom Seems Pretty Cool About His Ninth-Place Finish (Tweet)
It’s always nice when moms are sweet and loving, but, honestly, sweet and loving moms are a dime a dozen. What really moves our meter is when a mom can be sweet and loving with dashes of cynicism and profanity. That’s our type of mom.
It would appear that Dale Earnhardt Jr. has just such a mom.
After finishing a fairly unremarkable 9th at the Brickyard 400, Dale’s mom sent him a text that was sweet, consoling, and funny, all at the same time.
Here it is, as retweeted by Dale Jr.:
I love my mom. pic.twitter.com/eLEe7KDzbt

GOD! MOM! DON’T SAY I HAVE A SHITTY CAR IN FRONT OF THE SPONSORS! GOD!
In reality, Dale thought this was funny enough that he wasn’t concerned about alienating anyone with his mom’s “shit car” comment. I mean, it’s her son. She’s got to blame something for his ninth-place finish, and it’s not going to be him.
Dale, looks like you have a pretty cool mom there. I say she’s a keeper.
