DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Dale Earnhardt Jr. began a week of media activities Monday that might make another NASCAR Sprint Cup series driver cringe. Earnhardt Jr. however didn’t mind a bit. Fresh off his second Daytona 500 win  only hours before, Earnhardt began the day at Daytona International Speedway, the site of Sunday’s rain delayed victory. Although “fresh” might be the wrong word.

“I was taking pictures and doing media until about 3 a.m.,” Earnhardt Jr. said. “The team was having most of the fun. When I got over there, they were out of spirits so we found some more and we just sat around and talked about how cool it was – just punching each other in the shoulder until about 4 a.m. and then I had to hang it up.”

Monday morning began with a breakfast and the installation of his No. 88 National Guard Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet inside the Daytona International Speedway Ticket and Tours Building. The car will be part of the Daytona International Speedway tours program and will be returned to the team at the 2015 Daytona 500, a tradition that has been in existence since 1996. MORE>>>
