Dale Earnhardt Junior Set To Watch the ARCA Season Premier

David PhillipsAnalyst IFebruary 7, 2009

This evening, NASCAR's most popular driver—Dale Earnhardt Jr.—plans to sit in his motor home at 4 PM and watch the 46th running of the ARCA Re/Max Slick Mist 200 presented by Lucas Oil.

June Bug wasted no time congratulating pole sitter Justin Lofton in the garage yesterday after Lofton put down the fastest lap for the season premiere.

Yesterday, Junior told reporters that, "It's great to see these ARCA cars are really exciting and quick... these drivers don't hold anything back."

When asked who he though would win the event tonight, Junior replied, "I'm not too sure... I don't quite know... All I know is it's going to be a really exciting race."

Junior did mention that he would be a little partial to the bow-ties, however.

So this afternoon, if you want to be doing the same thing as Junior, tune into the Slick Mist 200 live at Daytona on SPEED Channel at 4 PM.
