It didn’t take long for Dale Earnhardt Jr. to become a fan favorite on Twitter. Earnhardt, who won his second Daytona 500 Sunday, joined the social media medium early Monday morning and promptly won over the Internet by posting an amazing selfie with his father’s Daytona statue in the background. Earnhardt Sr., for those unaware, passed away after crashing during the final lap of the 2001 Daytona 500.
