Dale Earnhardt Jr. Has a New Addition to the Car Graveyard on His Property
Dale Earnhardt Jr. has added his most recent wreck to his collection of burnt-out race cars.
After his National Guard Chevrolet went down in blaze of fire and mud during a Sprint Cup race at Texas Motor Speedway earlier this month, Dale Jr. tweeted on Tuesday that the car had been dropped off with his collection of over 60 wrecks in the woods around the replica of an old western town he had built on the property called Whiskey River.

Earnhardt's motorsports mausoleum includes Juan Pablo Montoya's rig from his run in with a jet dryer at the 2012 Daytona 500, and Will Power's IndyCar from a 2011 crash.
