Earnhardt Jr, Suarez among NASCAR drivers who can’t drive in snow


They are use to driving in ovals. Add in a little snow on the Carolina roads and these NASCAR stars begin acting like a game of bumper cars.

Around Noon, Ryan Blaney tweeted that he saw Dale Earnhardt Jr. helping a car get unstuck from a snowy ditch.

Of course no good deed goes unpunished and Earnhardt quickly found himself the victim of the icy roads hitting a tree.

Now retired, Earnhardt will be among the NASCAR drivers who do not support rain tires we guess. Earnhardt was hardly the only NASCAR star to find themselves off the road. Enter Daniel Suarez.

Yep, that’s a Lexus – subsidiary of Toyota. Given that Subway allegedly pulled their sponsorship due to him passing out donuts…. have to wonder how Toyota feels about this photo below….

We are less than five weeks away from the Daytona 500. Something tells me that these guys will be more than ready for pavement.
