HOMESTEAD, Fla. (AP) — Dale Earnhardt Jr. got a firsthand look at Hurricane Irma's destruction when he made the drive from Key West to Homestead this week.
Displaced residents. Damaged homes. Downed trees. Debris piles.
It clearly affected NASCAR's most popular driver, who has a second home in Key West. Earnhardt took time to address the storm's aftermath while disclosing plans to race in the second-tier Xfinity Series finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway in 2018.
