Earlier, Dale Earnhardt Jr made his career comeback, much to the delight of his fans. Of course, it’s not in any NASCAR-related races, because the season is over. Instead, he competed in the Late Model Stock Car race at Florence Motor Speedway. Sadly, he didn’t win the race, but he was happy, nonetheless. As it turned out, he ended up finishing 9th in the race, but he was happy with the whole experience.

Honestly, the entire race weekend was a huge adventure for Dale Jr. First, he had a difficult time in the time trials, which resulted in him starting near the back of the field. Things got worse when he was caught in two incidents, where he was sent to the back of the field. There were a few more incidents, but he avoided them by driving onto the dirt. Despite all the shenanigans, he still challenged for the win before settling for ninth place.

He said, “A lot of boxes were checked for that race. There were a lot of car races to win. I just didn’t have my head on straight the last 20 laps. I realized we had a good shot to run second. (Mason Diaz) looked he’s going to win. His car was very fast, but he used it a lot trying to get back there, but there’s probably still a little bit of the car we did. But I thought, ‘wow, we really got a shot to run second’ and then all that happened.”
