Recently Dale Jr shared the bad habit he used to do when he was with Hendrick Motorsports. In a recent post on Dirty Mo Media Dale started his conversation with“This is not advice, this is bad advice.”

Dale continued,” But this is what I did. I felt like I didn’t run as good, race as good, if I didn’t blow off some steam on a Tuesday or Wednesday night. And, you know, when I started racing for Hendrick, you know, I tried to clean it up a little bit. You know, they were, you know, some of the people in the building were like, you know, you’re not as, you know, Jimmy’s in great shape. Look at what he does. You should be doing these things. And I’m like, Jimmy’s Jimmy.”

“But, okay, you know, I’m old. I’ll do better. I’m old. I’m going to lose some weight. I’m going to work out. I’m going to do these new things to try to be in better physical shape, right, and better mental shape.” Then Dale Jr shared he tried to avoid those things but nothing changed for him. So he ended his conversation by saying, “Maybe I’m just one of the old guards, man … I need to drink and smoke cigarettes and go kick a**.”
