Kevin Harvick and Dale Earnhardt Jr. have had a little back and forth this week, although not really talking to each other, more at each other. It all started with Earnhardt making some comments about the business side of NASCAR. Earnhardt thinks that the latest spate of driver changes is being at least partially fueled by economics. When you don’t have sponsors paying $20-30 million any more, you can’t pay your drivers as much any more and the younger drivers will take a lot less than a veteran to drive that car.
