Our Editor's Take

On The Dale Jr. Download—Dirty Mo Media podcast, Dale Earnhardt Jr. shares his adventurous life in the auto-racing industry. As the grandson of a NASCAR car builder, Earnhardt spent most of his life on the speedway. And he's got an impressive career to show for it. Now, the “Pied Piper of Daytona” looks back on his career. And oh, does he have some stories to tell of his years on the track!

On the show, Earnhardt talks about his adrenaline-fueled life in the auto-racing industry. The cohost is his right-hand man, Mike Davis. They offer a gripping first-hand account of life, careers, and altercations on the road. Each episode features unique insights and candor. Earnhardt wasn't known for holding back on the racetrack. He brings that same sense of insight and honesty to his podcast.

Listeners can look forward to hearing from some of the industry's greatest figures. But The Dale Jr Download—Dirty Mo Media also gives a voice to some of the most polarizing figures of that time. One such guest is Jeremy Mayfield, whose doping scandal cost him his racing career.

Earnhardt was born into a racing family in North Carolina. With his father and grandfather being active figures on the NASCAR scene, his speedway career began at age 17. Initially competing with his father, he honed his racing skills to compete on his own. That's how he became the celebrated racer the world knows and loves today. And now, his podcast continues this run of success.

419 - Scott Dixon - The Unconventional Road to Indy
The Bojangles Studio is graced by IndyCar royalty this week as Dale Earnhardt Jr. and his co-host Mike Davis sit down with Scott Dixon. Since emerging on the American open-wheel racing scene in 1999, Dixon has written his name into the history books (between Foyt and Andretti, mind you) by winning six IndyCar championships, 52 races, and the 2008 Indianapolis 500. The interview covers Scott’s early life and introduction to auto racing, which came thanks to his father’s own racing endeavors and the family promoting a dirt track in Townsville, Australia.  Dixon seemed destined for success as he won his way through the kart and lower Formula ranks in Australia and New Zealand, but with every progression came exponential budget growth. As his parents had already mortgaged their home to support his racing endeavors, his father and some local businessmen started an investment corporation that would sell shares of Scott’s potential career earnings to help keep him on track. The result was Dixon moving stateside in the late 90s, wowing Stefan Johansson in a test at Sebring and taking a seat in the Indy Lights Series, where he would win the championship in resounding fashion in 2000, beginning his dominance in American open-wheel racing. The interview also discusses Scott’s tenure at Chip Ganassi Racing, his family life, and the comparability of stock cars and championship cars.  To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: Learn more about your ad choices.
