I don't know why you are popular maybe because people want to see you splatter like your father. You are just an average driver with mediocre skills. Jimmy will always be better then you

Forbes lists Dale Jr 3rd among the most influential athletes and 7th among the world's most valuable athlete brand. Here is a quote from the Forbes story.
“The Dale Jr. brand shouts authenticity to the core. It represents family, blue-collar, likeability and cool. But the glue that holds it together is authenticity, and that’s what makes the Dale Jr. brand so appealing. Nobody likes fake. With Dale Jr., what you see is what you get.”
This is why Dale Jr is so popular, has nothig to do with Dale Sr.

Yes, a great guy that does not need to win races to be popular.
Dale Jr fans love him win or lose. The Dale Jr bashers will just need to get over the fact that Dale Jr is a great guy!

If you had taken the time to read the article you would have seen that all that matters to him is winning a race. They may have to stick Johnson in that car with a Jr halloween mask on to pull that off.

Win or lose, he's the biggest brand name NASCAR has. He wouldn't agree but he's the only member of NASCAR (other than Danica) that has reached a level of celebraty status that winning isn't necessary to remain popular. Suck it up Haters, Jr. is the King of the Hill whether you like it or not.
