I just read that he broke up her 2 yr marriage and she is living with Dale Jr. that is all I read. they have been together almost 2 years but he could not bring her to awards show last year, she was not divorced. inquiring minds paper.

I suppose that out of work people who get drunk watching NASCAR races so they have no clue that their guy has sucked for a few years now, but want him to at least be the most popular driver so they do not have to buy new fan gear, have nothing better to do than to vote for the driver to be the most popular driver.

When he gave that answer during the "Newlywed Game" Kevin Harvick acted totally surprised and said "I've never even seen her".

KH doesn't often give a lot of thought to what he says so I'm convinced his response what genuine.

I think Jr was using the generic phrase "my future wife" the same way Tony does. Nobody special in mind.

His girlfriend was sitting with Jrt & the family when his father was inducted into the HOF.

I'd been told they have been together for some time, even before her divorce. But I didn't know he's hearing wedding bells.

I guess since gay marriage is gaining in popularity, goooooonior thinks its safe to finally come out of the closet.
As for the award, just shows lots of his fans are dedicated to......well, no talent for starters.

I guess a lot of the people that aren't Jr. fans are a little too stupid to understand the concept of Jr.'s fans being loyal whether he's winning or not. Really, it's not hard to understand. It's the same as Cousin Carl's ten fans loyalty when he went a year without winning, only Jr. has ten million loyal fans.

They are as stupid as someone pulling a number like 10,000,000 fans out of his hat.

I really do not understand why he is voted most popular driver. is it because of his Daddys name? he's ok but he can not speak.
