Dale Jr. hates flying, Helio racing Daytona 500 and Elliott won’t age

As far as TV-watching holidays go, I think you’d have to put Father’s Day pretty high on the list, right?

Thanksgiving is your obvious No. 1, followed by New Year’s Day and Christmas (yep, in that order), and possibly a little bit of Memorial Day (certainly for racing fans) mixed in.

But, coming from someone who just watched four hours of final round US Open coverage on Sunday … Father’s Day absolutely belongs in the conversation.

Which brings me to my point (yes, we’re finally here!): maybe pick another summer weekend to give the Cup guys off?

I missed racing. You missed it. Heck, even the Cup guys (kind of) couldn’t stay away!

“To be able to come down here and watch is fun,” Chase Elliott told Racing America’s Matt Weaver after making the trip from Dawsonville to Pensacola to watch father Bill run the SRX Series opener Saturday night.
