RELATED: Dale Earnhardt Jr. through the years

Which driver or story in our sport would make a great movie?

That’s a great question. I think Denny Hamlin would be a good one. Denny came from humble beginnings and now he’s rubbing shoulders with Michael Jordan. He’s had a pretty interesting life.- Dale Jr.

Favorite TV show?

My favorite TV show of all time is the mini-series Lonesome Dove. I made my wife Amy watch all eight hours in one sitting before I would take the relationship any further. I said, “If you want to know me, this is what we have to do.” -Dale Jr.

Favorite pump-up movie?

I would say Tombstone, particularly the characters of Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday. -Dale Jr.

Favorite character on The Office?

Ed Helms and I did a Budweiser Super Bowl spot when he was just getting started, he was still doing stand-up. Of course, he’s long forgotten me now, but I’m still a big fan of his. His new show on Peacock looks pretty good too. -Dale Jr.

What actor would play you in a movie?

This has come up a lot. Every time I think Matt Damon, but I hate to answer cause it sounds so conceited. Maybe we go with Neil Patrick Harris. -Dale Jr.

Cannonball Run, Smokey and Bandit, Dukes of Hazzard, or Bullitt?

I would probably say Smokey and the Bandit. I was a big Burt Reynolds fan. -Dale Jr.

Someone you’d want on the podcast that’s no longer with us? Dream guest?

There’s a long list. David Pearson would be at the top, how about my dad. I never even had that thought in my head til just now. Dream guest would be Cale Yarborough.- Dale Jr.

Favorite race you won?

Probably the All-Star Race in my rookie season. Celebrating in Victory Lane with dad after that race was an epic moment for me. -Dale Jr.

Favorite race you didn’t win?

That’s easy. The one at Martinsville where the right front fender was missing and we finished top five. Bud car in 2006 -Dale Jr.

Most rewarding win as an owner?

Josh Berry at Martinsville this year. -Dale Jr.

Is a hot dog a sandwich?

A hot dog is a hot dog, it’s an alternative to a sandwich. -Dale Jr.

If you took two separate lasagnas and stacked them on top of each, would you have one lasagna or two lasagnas?

You have one lasagna. -Dale Jr.
