Dale Earnhardt Jr. Adds Homestead to Xfinity Schedule

Dale Earnhardt Jr. has added a second race to his 2023 NASCAR Xfinity Series schedule.

Earnhardt tweeted July 6 that he will be competing in the Xfinity race at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Oct. 21, driving his own No. 88 for JR Motorsports, with Bass Pro Shops as the sponsor. 

Earnhardt is also scheduled to run the Xfinity race at Bristol Motor Speedway on Sept. 15. While he has made at least one start in the series every year since 2001, this will mark the first time he has made more than one in a season since 2017.

I wonder how much NA$CAR is paying him in an attempt to sell more tickets?


Jr. shrills for NASCAR as long as someone picks up the tab.


Good Gawd…just go away already.


Maybe YOU should just go the hell away already!!!!!!


LOL. Hush child, hush!


I don’t want to see any thing happen to Dale Jr. But does everyone remember what he said his life was like at the height of his concussion symptoms. The affects were very bad. He stopped racing full time because he was worried about quality of life with his family. So why is he chancing having the affects be permanent by racing two to five times a year? He doesn’t need the money? I say Dale please stop ! We shouldn’t feel sorry if God forbid something happens.
