It doesn't matter if you're one of the best NASCAR drivers on the planet, like Dale Earnhardt Jr. No one's above the law, and on Sunday, Dale Jr. got a (rather hilarious) reminder of just that.
On his way to the Texas Motor Speedway, Dale Jr. was apparently trying to sneak in some practice a little too early, and a nearby cop wasn't having any of it. Fiancee Amy Reimann, who shared the picture, thought it was all rather funny.
According to her tweet, Earnhardt didn't get ticketed. She didn't say how fast he was going.
Earnhardt first began experiencing concussion-like symptoms in late July, and said in September he would miss the rest of the season. He plans to be back in No. 88 Chevrolet for Hendrick Motorsports for the start of next season at the Daytona 500.
Even though he's not racing, Earnhardt is still doing appearances at the track, and watches some of the race from the No. 88 pit box.
