Fan honors Dale Jr. in the strangest way

Sunday is Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s last race at Watkins Glen International, and one fan decided to honor him in the most peculiar way.

ESPN’s Darrel Rovell tweeted a picture courtesy of Professional Bull Riders of a Dale Jr. fan shirtless with Earnhardt’s name and number on his chest. His back has the No. 88 with the words “last ride” above it.

The man was able to accomplish his incredible feat by applying duct tape and taking it off once he was sunburned.

Unfortunately, Earnhardt Jr.’s final race at the Glen was cut short due to a valvetrain issue. Either way, the fan probably regrets nothing.
