Revealed: Earnhardt's Letter To Himself

Dale Earnhardt, Jr., was profiled on CBS This Morning early today, revealing the existence of a letter he wrote to himself at age 16, talking about his relationship with his famous father, hopes for his own racing career and ways to build confidence in himself.

    How incredibly genuine and articulate ... very touching. Dale Jr has lived life of fame, under immense pressure and scrutiny, yet he's completely grounded. His dad would be so proud.

    Very cool piece on himself. Would have loved to have seen big E give him a huge neck hug at the end of the letter. Roll on Jr Nation!

  8. Good insight of how he has overcome his personal challenges and shows how he really is and desires to be just an ordinary guy, despite his father and personal fame.
