Richard runs into Dale Earnhardt Jr. at PBR Event
If you’ve been watching the new season of Fast N’ Loud, part two of the ’72 Pantera build episode in particular, you’ll know that NASCAR was a major storyline via Richard’s visit to Texas Motor Speedway and Brad Keselowski ‘s visit to Gas Monkey Garage. Coincidentally, Richard ran into Dale Jr. at a Professional Bull Riders (PBR) event, the same week that episode aired, in Memphis, TN.
PBR had Richard set up in a viewing area above the chute and Dale Jr. came up to Richard to say hi. The two talked about the time Richard and Aaron (Kaufman) delivered the Mountain Dew green ’56 Chevy Nomad station wagon to Jr’s house in Mooresville, NC. The also talked about a potential build in the future.
If the night weren’t cool enough, it got even better when Richard connected with another NASCAR legend, Tony Stewart, at the same event. Tony was gracious enough to congratulate Gas Monkey on Alex Laughlin’s 1st NHRA Pro Stock win in St. Louis.
Hopefully Richard and Jr make another build a reality and Gas Monkey Garage and NASCAR intersect once again during the November 2016 race at Texas Motor Speedway.
