Dale Jr. NBC News Super Bowl

In case you missed it, here is a complete recap of Dale Jr.'s Super Bowl LII festivities over weekend.

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (Feb. 5, 2018) – Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s first assignment as a member of the NBC Sports team was kind of a big deal. He covered Super Bowl LII for the network, and by all accounts, had a whale of a time doing so.

What does it take to impress a guy like Dale Earnhardt Jr., one of the top athletes in the world for the past two decades? Try this...

 

 

That’s not the half of it. He met NFL legend Jim Brown too, and was as nervous as some of us were that time we asked Dale Jr. for his autograph.

 

 

 

Skijoring!!! #coldaf #minnesota #livingmybestlife

Nationwide Insurance remains an important part of Dale Jr.’s life, and he spent time with some football player people seem to know (just kidding, Peyton Manning!).

 

 

He even went out on a frozen Minnesota lake in search of dinner...along with fellow NBCer Rutledge Wood. No word on whether they ate well that night or not...

 

 

It wasn’t all work during Super Bowl week, as he attended the NBC party prior to the game.

 

 

On game day, Earnhardt Jr. was featured three times, and the work that went into the segments was evident. What the heck is skijoring, anyway?
