304 - Paul Morris: Burnouts at the Bar
G'day mate! Dale Earnhardt Jr. brings in his good friend from down under, Australian racecar driver Paul Morris, to turn the show upside down. Morris and Dale jr. recall how they met, the time they got kicked out of a night club, crazy decisions over wine, driving the treacherous Bathurst race course, and landing helicopters on a casino. Paul opens up about a few bad wrecks, a concussion that prevented an opportunity in NASCAR and the time that the V8 Supercar veteran raced three weeks after breaking multiple vertebrae in a crash. Morris shares the tale of how burnouts at a bar once got Robby Gordon's Stadium SUPER Trucks series banned from Australia. Ya think that's wild? How about when Dale Jr. drove one of Paul's racecars barefoot while in board shorts? Yeah, that happened. From a story of a shark bite to the time he crashed a helicopter, the stories are plentiful.
Dale Jr and co-host Mike Davis discuss the big Indycar / NASCAR doubleheader weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and what it could mean for future collaborations between the two series. Dale Jr. will be back to work calling races for NBC this weekend and discusses the challenges he expects to face while broadcasting remotely.
