Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Driver of the No. 88 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet takes to the Big Apple to spread the word about the Chase for the Sprint Cup

Much like his media tour of the Big Apple in July, Dale Earnhardt Jr. headed north to New York City to promote this week's Chase for the Sprint Cup opening race at Chicagoland Speedway.

Earnhardt is one of 12 drivers that will compete for the Sprint Cup Series championship over the course of the next 10 races, a prize that has eluded the veteran driver over his 14-years as a full-time Cup driver.

Junior started off his day with a segment on CBS This Morning, which will air on Wednesday between 8-9 a.m. ET, then headed over to Sirius XM radio. Earnhardt created his top-12 playlist of music, as he'll be the guest DJ tomorrow on the station's alternative channel, Lithium. While he was there, he ran into hit recording artist CeeLo Green.

His following appearances brought him to FOX News' America Live, FOX Business' Markets Now, Huff Post Live and finally FOX Sports One's Crowd Goes Wild with Regis Philbin.

Follow the timeline below as Junior's day is recapped via social media.
