At The Request Of Dale Earnhardt Jr., Pocono Raceway Shares The Wild Items Left Behind After Sunday’s Race

Pocono raceway

When Dale Earnhardt Jr. asks for something, you deliver (unless you’re Noah Gragson and your boss tries to hand you a beer).

Dale Jr. was in the booth for the wild race at Pocono Raceway this past Sunday afternoon, which saw Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch of Joe Gibbs Racing disqualified due to an impermissible extra layer of tape over each corner of the front facia ahead of the wheel openings, which played into the aerodynamics and ultimately made the cars a lot faster than everybody else’s, clearly.

Denny initially took the checkered flag during the NASCAR Cup Series race at Pocono Raceway, beating out his Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Kyle for his third victory of the season.

JGR announced yesterday that they won’t appeal the decision (because they were caught red-handed and I guess figured there’s no getting out of this one), cementing the third-place car of Chase Elliott as Sunday’s official winner:

But aside from the race itself, there were some wild items left behind in the infield and Dale Jr. wanted to see what it all was.

Talladega Superspeedway has a great tradition of sharing all the wacky items people leave behind every Monday morning after a big race there, and Junior noticed how many campers were at the Pocono race and wanted them to share, as well.

Of course, Pocono Raceway happily obliged after Jr. tweeted:

“Ok, Pocono Raceway there was a full house of campers in the infield for todays race. Imma need a TALLADEGA style thread tomorrow on all the weird shit left behind.”

Here’s some of the stuff that got left behind this year:

And my personal favorite, this pink #3 car that is made for a small child but I would love to take a spin around the track in:

And in case you missed the race on Sunday, here’s the extended highlights from the M&M’s Fan Appreciation 400:
