Earnhardt on whirlwind tour after Daytona win
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Dale Earnhardt Jr. has been even busier in the wake of his second Daytona 500 victory.
Earnhardt has been traveling almost non-stop since he won NASCAR's premier race on Sunday night. He made a couple of national TV appearances before arriving at Texas Motor Speedway in Austin on Tuesday afternoon.
NASCAR's most popular driver made the most of an opportunity to promote the sport in a city with the only Formula One course in the country.
He says he came to the track "to tell people to see us race because we put on a better show. NASCAR is where it's at."
Earnhardt's victory snapped a 55-race losing streak dating to 2012. He also won the Daytona 500 a decade ago.
