At one point in Saturday’s Xfinity Series OneMain Financial 200, three JR Motorsports drivers — Elliott Sadler, Justin Allgaier and Tyler Reddick — were atop the running order.
The team owner, though, was not at Dover International Speedway to see this thrilling turn of events.
Dale Earnhardt Jr., new father, was back home with his daughter, Isla Rose, of course.
Still, Xfinity Racing couldn’t help but wonder if Dale Jr. was watching the excitement while kicking back on the couch, holding baby Isla.
