MR 4K UPSCALER : I love Dale , Much love & respect Brother .

BillyN31 : So honest and from his heart. Joe Rogan is a master interviewer.

cgppdx : Props to JRE for the diversity in guests

Trevor R.N. : Apparently Dale Earnhardt and my father were the same man, or were raised the way.

joseph Smith : That shit was on point.....Im not even a race fan but that was some emotional shit!

anthony PADULA : There's not a fake bone in his body.

Russell Mostrom : The bucket story just shows how much weight a father's actions and words actually cary!

chefboyarleezy : Joe this a very different interview and I could tell you were intrigued because you listened to him instead of cutting him off to talk about your own nascar experience.

Curtis Jewell : His dad would be so proud of the man he became!

SNJ : Figured I'd watch for a minute but ended up watching 18. Great interview.

Jonathan Velder : it's rare that you can go that long without Joe Rogan saying anything. It was real good and I'm not erasing fan and I enjoyed the s*** out of this

Keks Gloryhole Fun : Dale is a solid dude.

david mcdavidson : Imagine having to answer questions about your dead dad for 17 solid years

Marty Wilkinson : Jr is a class act. Great interview as always Joe.

Will N Josh : JR is such an awesome guy. Humble even though he has a huge passionate fan base and has made a ton of money. He seems like a real guy and not a fake persona like alot of celebs are.

Alijah : This is awesome. I never would've imagined he would have someone like Dale Earnhardt Jr. on here.

T3hChaerlz : well this is gonna blow up... lol awesome interview

Elliot Hill : Jr's story is beautiful and should become a movie one day.

Hunter Stout : Dale senior died blocking so his son and partner could win a race.. that's all you need to know about Dale; he raised a damn fine son.

Nino Gaggi : some dad's hold your hand threw everything some dad's let you figure life out on your own Good for a father to help some, but dont coddle your kids

Masherful : Joe "Wow, one bucket" Rogan

m3talh3ad123 : His dad was intelligent in raising him, particularly once Jr got into racing. He wasn't that dad yelling at his kid to perform like you see in little leagues, instead he went completely hands off and let Jr work his way to the top. This allows Jr's success to never be questioned, like he had an unfair advantage cause his father was an extremely successful Nascar driver.

Cameron Eplion : I feel like these two could become extremely good friends.

Jeff Johnson : I had the same relationship with my son but the last time I saw him we got along didn't fight one month later I lost him sometimes I wonder if I was to hard on him because I knew he could do great things but I felt like he was wasting his life but really he was just finding his way i would like to tell him I'm sorry but I can't now 💔

Urban Outdoorsman : He never talked about Jr's racing, because he knew that was in his blood... Being a good man, and being responsible had to be taught.

jess d : The least amount of words that Joe spoke in an interview.

Jordan Robson : One of the best JRE podcast, but I'm a JR fan so, bias. Dudes incredibly honest and open these days, his evolution as a person has been fascinating to me

Anthony Fiuza : Loved this interview. This the reason why this show is the best of all as far as talk shows go. Whether it's radio, TV or online shows, it doesn't matter. None stack up to the Rogan show. So nice to cut through fake personalities and commercials and just go with celebrities acting like normal people with genuine emotion.

bman6661 : Life is too short to not show love to your children and to act overly tough.

SugeKnight323 : Listening to this had me crying, very powerful

Mr. Slothy-G : In life, my biggest motivation was and still is to not disappoint my dad and to make him proud. You could beat me, yell at me, talk shit to me and I wouldn't care. But if he ever said I'm just disappointed in you it literally killed me, it haunted me because of how much he means to me and all he has done for me as a kid. I watched how hard he worked and always hear how great of a guy he is and so I always want to make the guy proud.

Milly Mako : I love how dale is saying some really personal shit about his dad and joe keeps laughing!!! 🇺🇸

MaceWin Dont : I dont even like NASCAR...BUT this was awesome

Marty McLochlin : Finally a NASCAR driver on JRE. Prob the best podcast Joe has done. I love Junebug and can relate as probably many of us can to his father son relationship. There's no hiding behind the fact the fact Dale Sr was a shit father in alot of ways but Jr grew up to be a respectful caring man. I disagree with a lot of Jr's recent politics but god damn I miss seeing him on the track. Go rewatch those early 2000's races especially at Dega , the crowd just went wild when he took the lead. Earnhardt Inc had great cars at superspeedways in those years and it was a blast to watch tthem dominate. Junebug iis a sweetheart and sadly the future of the sport of NASCAR isn't looking good. Shit really did change the instant Sr died. Stock car racing is pure americana and the fans of it need to make sure it survives.

joemcphila : Jr's the nicest guy in the world.

Kord Chandler : I loved Dale Sr. When I was a kid but it sounds like he was kind of a shitty dad.

blkmustang007 : Do it for Dale !

M Ciddy : *Joe* "I didn't think your dad's fatal wreck was even that bad" *Rogan*

Carlos Navarro : The true ballad of ricky bobby!Lmfao!!!


Domenic Mastro : This story would make a great book or movie. A son living in the shadow of his legend father, getting on his level and then loses him tragically doing what they both loved. Such a moving story from the perspective of a loving son

Andrew Stalnaker : He looks so much like Layne Staley.

wanderingtyson : Joe "I had a rough childhood, so screw you and your dad" Rogan

Lewis Lemons III : He was preparing him for greatness

belgutei bayarsaikhan : It is funny that my father won bronze medal in boxing at barcelona 92 olympic games and won few world champions but we never talk about boxing even though i am a huge boxing fan and an athlete...... its like the sport haunted him !!! i just never asked... and he never talked....

GaDawgsemout : Perseverance of Jr is inspiring, and he’s a class act that made his own legacy. I’m sure his father looking down is proud of him.

Mark P. : Ever considered the reason Dale Sr. may have treated his kids the way he did might have been because he just wasn't a great dad? Some people will give the people they admire a pass on certain parts of their life because they choose to want to see only the good things about them. Maybe Dale Sr. just wasn't in to having kids and all of the things that entails. Maybe the reason they grew closer in those final years wasn't because Jr. was growing up but instead because Sr. was. That would not have made Sr. a bad person if true but it would make him a regular guy because that situation is very common. Rich or poor sometimes moms and dads move on after a bad relationship and forget that their kids need them. Dale Jr. is by any comparison a great guy and I would bet he will be a great dad.

mech5 fab : JRE has the best interviews. The long format works.

livin lite : I always liked it when Rusty beat Dale, those were the best races.

Akilleus : It was my freshman year when he died and my school had a moment of silence for him. I thought it was weird but he is a legend none the less.
