The Dale Jr. Download - Dirty Mo Media - September 24, 2019 - 1:52:48

Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Rick Hendrick get together for a much-anticipated tell-all interview. The driver and his former boss discuss Mr. H's beginnings in the sport, how Hendrick Motorsports nearly started with Richard Petty behind the wheel, the Gee family connection, the famed rental car ride with Geoff Bodine and Dale Earnhardt, and the meeting that changed their lives and Dale Jr.'s side-skirts forever. They also reveal classic stories of the legendary Harry Hyde and how The Intimidator was so mad at Ken Schrader that he didn't speak to him for a year. DJD tackles topics like Tony Eury Jr's first doctors trip and the big announcement of who's wheeling the JR Motorsports Late Model at Martinsville. Rick Hendrick sticks around for a special edition of Odd History that includes Paul Newman and Tom Cruise.
