“They’re Protected” – Dale Earnhardt Jr. Announces His Position on Interfering with a Driver in Victory Lane

In NASCAR, there are often chances that a driver will crush an opponent in order to win the race. This does not happen often, but such situations exist, and sometimes the victim wants revenge. However, Dale Earnhardt Jr. believes bad sportsmanship can interfere with a driver’s celebration.

He said, “I always feel the winning circle, no matter how disappointed you are with the person there. Or what he could have done to get to that position. Once he’s in the winner’s circle, you won’t go in there and ruin what’s going on. Even if you don’t agree with it or you think he did something wrong to you. I always felt like there was another time and plenty of opportunity to say what you had to say to that person. Or handle that situation however you want to handle it. But within the victory lane, they are protected in a way, and that experience is protected. ”

On the whole, he’s not the type to try and rain on someone’s parade. Although he was poor, in the process. Instead, he will choose to let the past pass into the present. If he is really in a vindictive mood, then it will come on track in the next race. Or he can take the high road and just forget about any thought of revenge. Otherwise, it will only compromise his race and no one will win at the end of the day.
