NASCAR drive Dale Earnhardt Jr. is probably the most famous Redskins fan there is. He has been known to get score updates over his radio when he is racing on Sundays in the fall and he has been an occasional visitor to FedEx Field and Redskins Park.
So it was inevitable that the most famous Redskins player would acknowledge Earnhardt's win last night in the biggest event in motor sports, the Daytona 500.
The driver's @DaleJr Twitter handle, by the way, is new as of last night. Within hours after sending his first tweet . . .
. . . he had a quarter of a million followers. 1s of this moment, about 12 hours after starting the account, his tweet to followers ratio sits at 3 to about 350,000.
