286 - Rick Mast: Just Glad to be Alive

The Dale Jr. Download - Dirty Mo Media - February 25, 2020 - 2:02:44

Dale Earnhardt Jr. clears the air with Rick Mast about the driver's unknown start to a racing career and the carbon monoxide poisoning that forced his exit the sport. Mast opens up about feeling "like he was dying," and decisions that saved his life. He also reveals the moment that humbled Dale Earnhardt Sr. as well as the day Rick was going to shoot Jimmy Spencer. Mast also shares the infamous cow-sale that led to the purchase of his first racecar and how Elvira the bubble witch magically turned his performance around. The DJD gets real about Noah Gragson's tangle with Myatt Snyder and the softest bounty in the land. We learn that Dale likes the word "drag" and "quibble" during our ad reads and that J.D. McDuffie had to bet it all to make it to the next race.
