    That car was for Buddy Baker. The car in the foreground is a 24 that was for Jeff.

    Actually, he is right, Jeff was supposed to run the 46, but due to a contract with the producers of Days of Thunder (who Hendrick provided cars for) the 46 was not allowed to run a full season so he went for 24 instead. At least that is what I read.

    Dale Earnhardt is the only driver to win ten-straight Gatorade Twin 125 races (1990-1999)

    Mark Martin has the most second-places finishes in the NASCAR points-standings, and for a long time, held the record for most wins in the Busch Grand National Series

    Dale Earnhardt Jr and Martin Truex Jr credit NR2003 and the BR Talladega track with their 1-2 finish in the 2004 Talladega race in the Busch Series.

    Buddy Baker used to cook bologna on the manifold of his engine.

    And man was Brian stoked when we got on Ventrilo a few hours later, we all were. To know that something you(Brian) made better and something you(the team) spent countless hours testing be talked about so openly on national TV was a thrill and honestly it's a thrill talking about it to this very day.

    Dale Earnhardt Sr. and Jr. both don't actually have the first name "Dale", it's Ralph. Ralph Dale Earnhardt Sr. and Ralph Dale Earnhardt Jr.

    If they went by their true first names, Dale Sr would be Ralph Earnhardt Jr and Dale Jr would be Ralph Earnhardt III, I guess?

    That is true but Ralph's middle name wasn't Dale but Lee.That's what makes Jr. a Jr. and Sr. a Sr.
