Dale Earnhardt Jr. gets choked up in interview after Daytona 500 win

, , ,
Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

The Daytona 500 is the crown jewel of stock car racing. But for Dale Earnhardt Jr., emotions ran deeper than winning the sport’s most prestigious event. Following his victory, NASCAR’s most popular driver got choked up while giving an interview.

Junior’s victory snapped a 55-race winless streak (a string lasting more than a full season) and came 10 full years after he won his only other 500. Beyond that, with NASCAR’s new championship format, the win officially puts Junior in the  ”Chase for the Championship,” the sport’s 10-race playoff at season’s end.

This may be the most emotional you’ll ever see a man when talking about Kelley Blue Book and Diet Mountain Dew.
