Dale Jr. gets ROCKIN' at SEMA


Dale Earnhardt Jr., very much in the hunt for the '06 Nextel Cup, was at SEMA in Las Vegas last week to meet corporate execs at many booths and the public at the XM Satellite Radio booth, where hundreds were waiting to greet him.

I managed to get myself 'backstage,' where Dale and his racer friends Tony Kanaan and Michael Andretti (among others) were gathered. I gave Dale his copy of ROCKIN', and turned to his spread (page 184) where he talks about growing up in rock & roll and hearing Nirvana for the first time.

Dale then said, "this looks like a really cool book, man." I said, "I do believe it is--and it's a great read too." We had only about 45 seconds to rap about ROCKIN' and then the curtains would part and he'd be before the flashbulbs. I asked if I could take his photo holding the book, and he said "go for it."

So here he is, Dale Jr. and ROCKIN'. I hope he had a chance to read parts of the book on his planeflight down to Fort Worth, Texas, where he'd finish six (and jump to 3rd in the points standings).
