“Just tell Ross Chastain that” – Dale Jr receives a hilarious response from co-host Mike Davis as he recalls the Dale Earnhardt story

Dale Earnhardt Junior was recently telling a story to his co-host Mike Davis about the parts used in NASCAR and how they were back when his dad was racing the sport. In the middle of his story, his host decided to make a joke, which seemed to fly over Earnhardt’s head as he walked around and made his point.

Junior stated, “When my dad used to race for Bud Moore, Bud would tell him like, ‘Man you know you break our engines. You run ’em too hard. So it was that kind of mentality like if you run 100% all day, it’s going to blow the engine.”

“Can you imagine telling the driver or the driver to get in the car knowing, ‘Well, I can’t run hard all day, or the engine will fail or I will break the valve spring. ”

Its co-host Mike Davis intervenes and says, “Just tell Ross Chastain that and watch what happens.”

Oddly enough, Junior doesn’t even smile and continues his story as if Davis never existed. Junior concludes his story by adding more, “We’ll do the last 20 laps, and then we’ll go in the right direction. Well the race has to be brutal enough that it really tests the cars as much as it tests the drivers and there was a glimpse of that in the Bristol race.”

But this is something that absolutely must be addressed. We don’t need, that takes too long, I think when the part was failing a lot.”

NASCAR gives answer to criticism of defective parts after race in Bristol

After the race in Bristol, several drivers along the course and a few who were competing in the play-off qualifiers encountered faulty parts that either ruined their race or knocked them out of championship competition.

Drivers like Martin Truex Jr have seen a power steering failure, while Kevin Harvick saw a lug nut failure, causing a wheel to come off after stopping in a ditch. Harvick then came out and publicly criticized NASCAR for providing “crappy a** parts.”

Soon after, NASCAR officials released a statement about the bad parts’ concerns. Scott Miller, NASCAR Vice President stated, “The Bristol is definitely a unique loading bag. And some things turned out with direction that wasn’t expected.”

“But with the newness of this car and the newness of everything, it is not acceptable to have problems, but it is probably part of the learning process for all of us. All the teams and OEMs were involved in the RFP process when we chose the parts. So everyone has a stake in That, and it’s not just NASCAR that picks out an unquoted quote, shoddy cut.”
