Drop everything – Dale Jr’s car is here, Dale Jr’s car is here!!!

dale.jpgI saw this banner ad on LivePDX this morning and clicked through to the Oregon National Guard website. Not being a NASCAR fan, I didn’t realize that Dale Earnhart Jr’s car was co-sponsored by Mountain Dew and the National Guard. Go figure.

I’m not sure if this is typical for NASCAR or more along the line of Elvis’s car being sent on tour after his death. Since Earnhardt is alive and well, I’m guessing the former. In any case, you can see the car at Wentworth Chevy on Grand & Burnside right across from downtown. Tomorrow it moves on to Mt. Hood Community College and then to Hooters. Hmmm, Hooters, National Guard, NASCAR – don’t tell the New York Times and the rest of the media, but I think this proves we’re really rednecks….

    the National Guard has sponsored other NASCAR cars before – in fact, they sponsored Greg Biffle’s car two years ago (Biffle is a OR/WA native who started his career racing on a few local tracks in the area, fyi.)

    Yes, I know my NASCAR. Yes, sending a car on tour is pretty typical. No, it doesn’t mean we’re rednecks.
