Dale Jr., Jeff Gordon poke fun at each other about retirement

We might enjoy retired Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jeff Gordon more than when they wore fire suits every weekend.

The two former Hendrick Motorsports drivers have had a number of back-and-forth banters on social media, but Saturday’s Twitter conversation may be the best one yet.

It began when Dale Jr. poked fun at ‘most famous people to wear coonskin hats’ in a photo collage. Of course, a black-and-white picture of a young Gordon made the cut. A bold move by Earnhardt, but Gordon was ready with a zinger of his own.

In true Junior fashion, he made a witty comeback while the Earnhardts eagerly await the birth of their daughter.

However, not to be outdone, the former pilot of the No. 24 punched right back. This time he included a throwback photo of Dale Jr. that immediately became internet gold.

We may have this battle end in a tie because each driver stepped up his jokes with each click of the keyboard — and we aren’t complaining.
