NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. may have taken the rest of 2016 off to recover from concussion symptoms, but he can still drive fast—a bit too fast for the local police around Texas Motor Speedway.


Earnhardt’s fiancée Amy Reiman took this snapshot of Dale Jr. pulled over for speeding. Dale Jr. lucked out and received a verbal warning when the cop’s ticket machine was broken.

When asked how fast he was going on Twitter, Dale Jr.’s response was “Not fast enough.”



Earnhardt may be taking a break from driving, but he’s been coming to nearly every race weekend lately, spending a lot of time in the No. 88 car’s pit box occasionally even helping out in the commentary booth. He expects to be back for next year’s Daytona 500.
