Bristol Motor Speedway dirt race in the NASCAR Cup Series race is set to take place this Easter weekend.
Former driver Dale Earnhardt Jr is not a fan of NASCAR decision to race on Easter Sunday saying it’s an tradition.
Earnhardt Jr declared that Easter Sunday should remain a holiday.
He said, “Spot off. I think we need Easter Sunday off. We need to be home with our families, hiding easter eggs in the yard with our kids. Its tradition.”
Dale Earnhardt Jr also pointed out that the drivers and crew will hardly have time on their hands to celebrate the holiday with their families.
Earlier this week Earnhardt Jr revealed he agreed didn’t with NASCAR sanctions on Ty Gibbs for Sam Mayer bust-up.
Dale Earnhardt Jr Said, “I don’t think any penalties should be given to any drivers. I didn’t see anything that went over the line. All the on-track stuff even after the chequered flag I’m fine with it and I think everything happened on pit road gets handled by the court of public opinion.”
“The polices itself around things like that. Nothing that I saw went beyond, went across the line into being a mockery or making the sport look bad. All the things that I saw gonna create interest, gonna sell tickets and gonna get us in the news in a good way.”, continued the semi-retired driver.
