AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Dale Earnhardt Jr. has been even busier in the wake of his second Daytona 500 victory.
Earnhardt has been traveling almost non-stop since he won NASCAR's premier race Sunday night. He made a couple of national TV appearances before arriving in Austin on Tuesday for a stop on behalf of Texas Motor Speedway.
NASCAR's most popular driver made the most of an opportunity to promote the sport in a city with the only Formula One course in the country.
He says he came to the track "to tell people to see us race because we put on a better show. NASCAR is where it's at."
Earnhardt's victory snapped a 55-race losing streak dating to 2012. He also won the Daytona 500 a decade ago.
