Dale Jr.: ‘Never Expected’ North Wilkesboro’s NASCAR Return To Be Reality

Eight days ago, Dale Earnhardt Jr. stood on the frontstretch of North Wilkesboro Speedway in awe. “I was in Wilkesboro at the race and saw about 10,000 fans come out on Tuesday night and saw a lot of smiling faces, saw a lot of race cars and lights,” Smith said. For Earnhardt, who finished third in his North Wilkesboro race, everything surrounding this moment in time still hasn’t quite hit him. “I never missed Charlotte races and I never missed North Wilkesboro races. But those plans had been with the possibility of maybe getting a NASCAR Truck Series race at the track. But before any of that can happen, the next All-Star Race has to be successful itself.
