In "The Return: A Dale Earnhardt Jr Short Film," the opening reads "After retiring from the NASCAR Cup series in 2017, Dale Earnhardt Jr made plans to return to the race car for the first time since stepping away. Earnhardt Jr was set to compete in a single Xfinity Series race at Richmond International Raceway in September. Our camera crew followed Dale, covering the events leading up to the race."
And follow Dale Jr they did! From his practice at Hickory to the race at Richmond, this short film covers it all, and it's VERY well done! And warning... the part where he talks about standing next to the car with his daughter Isla will bring tears to your eyes.
