Dale Earnhardt Jr hangs out with old friend Matt Kenseth, as he makes a comeback behind the wheel when NASCAR returns to racing. T he former Cup Champion enlightens Dale Jr. and co-host Mike Davis about his refined workout regiment and how he is approaching this comeback. Speaking of coming back, Matt tells us that he never did use the "R" word, so he never actually retired. So how has his family taken his return to the NASCAR life? And what will this new social-distanced NASCAR life be like? Kenseth also shares how the new deal with Ganassi went down and how he is going into this first race with so many unknowns. He reveals the origins of his original nickname, what he really thinks of watching the iRacing Pro-Invitational Series and how he thinks Dale Jr. is "cheap." Later in the show, Dale gets stumped by some tricky questions on #AskJr presented by Xfinity. The DJD gang discuss Chicagoland Speedway rumors and how Dale Jr didn't go to his high school prom. Oh, and we also tell a tale about a Pakistani magician who took to the high banks of Darlington Raceway... blindfolded.
