In the very last months of 2022, Dale Earnhardt Jr. decided to go deeper into writing. His dad, Dale Earnhardt, had a similar talent for writing about his experiences in NASCAR in a newspaper column, which not many people know of. Following in his father’s footsteps, the two-time Xfinity champion launched ‘Buster’s Trip to Victory Lane‘, a book that has been a bedtime partner for thousands of kids across the country now.

People showed the same love for his book as they did for him during his days of racing in the golden generation of NASCAR. Owing to such a hearty response, Junior continued the series with another edition of the popular book.
