Dale Earnhardt Jr., also known as number 88 in the NASCAR world, is now all the talk in the world of social media and its because of his taste in sandwiches.
On Tuesday, Jr. tweeted a picture of his lunch; a banana and mayo sandwich. Keep in mind, one of Dale’s sponsors is Hellmann’s mayo, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that it really is his favorite sandwich and now the internet is reacting to the combo.
