Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday: Truex Jr. swaps mid-race with Dale Jr. at New Hampshire 2004

Not exactly a highlight of Dale’s career, but a significant moment none the less. After suffering burn injuries from a scary wreck during an ALMS practice session at Sonoma Raceway, Dale Jr. needed a substitute driver midway through the race during the July New Hampshire 300. Truex Jr., driving for DEI at the time in the Xfinity Series, filled in the rest of the race for Dale. The #8 team was able to successfully get the driver swap done under caution without going a lap down, drawing a huge round of applause from the crowd.
