Dale Earnhardt Jr. driving an Indy auto? At Indianapolis Motor Speedway?
Individuals had been the queries being asked Sunday night right after IndyCar Series driver Graham Rahal engaged the Daytona 500 winner in a Twitter chat about swapping rides.
Rahal needs to drive a stock automobile, yes, but he is also making an attempt to offer a spark for his series and his team’;s new sponsor, the National Guard, which takes place to be Earnhardt’;s sponsor, as well.
Rahal advised the IMS street program that will host its 1st IndyCar occasion Could 8-10, but Earnhardt appeared to prefer an oval track. Rahal recommended the IMS oval, which prompted a sturdy response from track president Doug Boles.
Boles went on to level out that IMS is a track where “an Earnhardt and a Rahal won” races. Bobby Rahal won the 1986 Indianapolis 500 Dale Earnhardt won the 1995 Brickyard 400.
Earnhardt looks up for it, saying he needs to “do some figurin.” Then he wrote: “I’;ll be in touch.”
