It’s no surprise that Dale Earnhardt Jr loves his alcohol. In fact, he has his own alcohol brand, High Rock Vodka. And, of course, his favorite beer brand, Budweiser, also sponsored the driver for a good while. But it seems he couldn’t hold it in the broadcasting booth at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Well, he wasn’t drinking, but a fan might have found a hilarious loophole. And Bubba Wallace’s spotter, Freddie Kraft, couldn’t lose the opportunity to poke fun at Dale Jr.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. And His Wild Party

Back when Dale Earnhardt Jr. was sponsored by Budweiser, they reached a point where the former Cup Series driver ordered far too much beer. In fact Ty Norris, the former Vice President of Dale Earnhardt Inc., got a call from Tim Schuler, concerned about Dale Jr.

Norris said, “I got a call from Tim Schuler from Budweiser one day, and Steve Uihlein, and they were like, ‘Hey, what’s going on over at Jr.’s house?’

And I said ‘What do you mean?’

Well, the local distributor just said, ‘The most beer I deliver to any retailer in the entire state of North Carolina is in Mooresville at Dale Jr.’s house.’

They said ‘Is he selling it?’

He goes ‘How the hell is he drinking so much beer? We’re delivering case after case after case and there’s not a store in the area, in the region, that’s consuming as much beer.’”
