Dale Earnhardt Jr. discloses significant concerns with the latest Japanese entrant in NASCAR track.


Dale Earnhardt Jr., the two-time Daytona 500 winner, recently tested a new Japanese entry in the NASCAR track. His experience revealed some significant issues with the car's braking system.

The Idemitsu Mazda MX-5 Cup, traditionally confined to road and street courses, decided to test its mettle on the Martinsville Speedway. NASCAR Hall of Famers Bobby Labonte and Dale Earnhardt Jr. were part of this test.
