The legendary NASCAR driver-turned-analyst for NBC revealed the idea for his show on Twitter.

“I pitched this EXACT idea to NBC 2 years ago,” Dale Jr. tweeted over the weekend.
Why didn’t it happen?
NASCAR fans are desperately waiting for this to happen.
“Make it happen…we need more aerial content to bridge the gap between legends of the past and stars of today. Ask Harry Gant to host…still has that made-for-the-cast look. television!” one fan tweeted.
“When Dale and Jeff were watching the 2001 Pepsi 400 on NBC, I was glued to my TV. I felt like I was 16 again. I knew how it ended but I wanted to relive every moment. I cried that night like I cried in 2001. We need more of this,” another fan tweeted.
“Loved seeing you react to last year’s races at Talladega and Daytona… It was some of the best NASCAR TV content I’ve ever seen,” added another fan.
Make it happen, NBC.
