1. Hello, Dale Jr.
After being mostly out of sight since his last NASCAR Cup Series race at Homestead in November, Dale Earnhardt Jr. will spread his wings on the new chapter of his racing life as a television commentator for NBC Sports this weekend. Fox Sports ended its 16-race opening run and has handed off to NBC, which takes the reins all the way to South Florida. It will be interesting to see what the TV ratings look like next week.
