Third-Generation Driver, NASCAR's Most Popular Driver Award Winner

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Biography

Dale Earnhardt Jr. is a third generation driver in a family forever connected to the sport of stock-car racing, and while his innate ability behind the wheel comes from Earnhardt DNA, his competitive driving style and keen business sense is all his own. His flare for originality and common-sense charisma has helped propel him to one of the most popular figures in sports. Race fans have selected him five times as the winner of NASCAR's Most Popular Driver award, joining Richard Petty and Bill Elliott as the only  drivers to win the award five consecutive saesons since 1956. His appeal is not limited to race fans, as he has appeared numerously on Harris Interactive's annual polling of America's Top 10 Favorite Athletes, frequenting lists with such names as Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Breet Favre, and Derek Jeter.

Until 2008 Dale Jr.'s career as a full-time driver was solely within the confines of the family-owned business, Dale Earnhrdt Inc., in which he accumulated 39 victories in the nationwide and Sprint Cup Series from 1998-2007. But the 2008 season marked one of significant change, as Earnhardt made the boldest decision of his young career by signing with renowned team-owner Rick Hendrick to drive the No. 88 Chevrolets for Hendrick Motorsports. High-powered sponsorship deals soon followed, as Pepsi-Cola's Mountain Dew/AMP brand and Army National Guard agreed to a co-primary sponsorship deals with HMS to partner with Dale Jr. and the NO. 88 team.

In July 2007 , Dale Jr. annouced a partnership deal with Hendrick Motorsports that will campaign two full-time NASCAR Nationwide race teams under the JRM banner with HMS engines, chassis and vehicle engineering support.

Dale Jr.'s first turn at ownership began with Chance 2, a team started in 2002 and jointly operated with Dale Earnhardt Inc. With that team Dale Jr. was co-owner of the 2004 and 2005 Busch Series chsmpionship teams with driver Martin Truex Jr. Truex's accomplishments mirrored that of his owner, as Dale Jr.dominated the 1998 and 1999 Busch Series seasons, winning two championships, 13 races and more than $3 million. As a driver , he has an additional nine Busch Series victories in 19 starts. His 22 total victories tie him for fifth on the all-time Busch Series wins list. Fans and media selected him as one of the top-three Busch Series drivers of all-time in a 2006 NASCAR poll.

From magazines to television, Dale Jr. garners world wide attention. He has appeared on over 150

In recent polls and surveys, he recevied a top-five "Q" rating among all athletes, and rated among the top-five athletes in corporate endorsements by Forbes Magazine.

He has played cameo roles in major motion pictures "Talladega Nights" and "Cars", and was the subject of an episode of MTV's "Diary" and VH-1's "Driven".
