“Just Tell Ross Chastain That” - Dale Jr Gets a Hilarious Response From Co-Host Mike Davis as He Recalls a Dale Earnhardt Story

“Just Tell Ross Chastain That” – Dale Jr Gets a Hilarious Response From Co-Host Mike Davis as He Recalls a Dale Earnhardt Story

Dale Earnhardt Junior was recently telling a story to his co-host Mike Davis surrounding the parts used in NASCAR and how it used to be back when his dad was racing in the sport. Midway through his story, his co-host decides to throw in a joke, which seemed to have flown over Earnhardt’s head as he continued to ramble on and stated his point.

Junior stated, “When dad used to race for Bud Moore, Bud would tell him like, ‘man you know you’re breaking our motors. You’re running ’em too hard.’ So it was this sort of a mentality like if you run a 100% all day, it’s gonna blow the engine.”

“Could you imagine telling a driver, or driver having to get in the car knowing, ‘well I can’t run hard all day, or the motor’s gonna break or I’m gonna break a valve spring.’”

His co-host Mike Davis interjects and states, “Just tell Ross Chastain that and watch what happens.”

Oddly, Junior doesn’t even smile and just continues his story as if Davis was never there. Junior concludes his story by further adding, “We’re gonna run the last 20 laps, and then we’re gonna go right. Well, the racing should be brutal enough that it really tests the cars as much as the drivers and there was a glimpse of that in the Bristol race.”

“But it’s absolutely something that needs to be addressed. We don’t need, that’s a taking a little too far, I think when the part was failing so often.”

NASCAR gives an answer to the criticism of faulty parts after the race at Bristol

Following the race at Bristol, several drivers along the field and a few more who were competing in the playoff elimination faced faulty parts that either ruined their race or knocked them out of the championship contention.

Drivers such as Martin Truex Jr saw a power steering failure, while Kevin Harvick saw his lug nut fail, leading to a wheel coming off after a pit stop. Harvick then went out and publicly criticized NASCAR for supplying “crappy a** parts.”

Soon after the NASCAR Officials released a statement surrounding the concerns of the bad parts. The senior Vice President of NASCAR, Scott Miller, stated, “Bristol is definitely a unique load case. And some things cropped up with the steering that weren’t expected.”

“But with the newness of this car and the newness of everything, it’s not acceptable to have problems, but it’s probably part of the learning process for us all. And all the teams and OEMs were involved in the RFP process when we chose the parts. So everybody’s got a stake in this, and it’s not just NASCAR choosing quote-unquote, crappy parts.”
