    A lot of our drivers, I think, listen to country or current pop. Nothing that’s really too much behind that first layer. I’ve always needed a little bit more than that. I’ve always enjoyed the search for something different or something a little more substantial. I always thought if I wasn’t racing one of my dream jobs would be as a scout, going town to town and trying to find bands in all these little dive bars. That would be so much fun, discovering music that way as opposed to from your phone.

  2. I don't listen to pop-punk anymore, but this was a great read. Seems like a really down-to-earth person.

    Not a racing fan at all. I know a few guys names, and know of him obviously, I knew hd dug The Dangerous Summer, but not our tiny scene to that extent. Pretty cool.

    Worth noting he was also the only driver to support athletes kneeling for the flag. Dale was the best guy in the sport.

    Dale is really awesome. Bummed he's retired now.
