Dale Earnhardt Jr. drives car for TaxSlayer Bowl coin toss

Call me a hater, but this is the best thing Dale Earnhardt Jr. has done in his career.

He drove his car onto the field of this today’s TaxSlayer Bowl between Georgia and Penn State, during the coin toss.

Post-1999, he’s underwhelmed NASCAR fans.  Though being compared to his late great father is a difficult task, one I wholeheartedly understand from a critical standpoint. Nonetheless, he still hasn’t been as good as expected.

Better than the entrance and the coin toss, what the hell is the TaxSlayer bowl? A mashup between the great heavy medal band Slayer and a band junkie’s nickname?

Currently, Georgia leads 17-3 at the half.  Stay tuned for more updates at Campus Sports.
