Dale Earnhardt Jr.: Sometimes life on NASCAR road just plain stinks

Life on the road is not always all that it's cracked up to be, even when you're flying from NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race to race in private jets.

Just ask Dale Earnhardt Jr. after he flew back home to Charlotte, North Carolina, from California with fellow Sprint Cup drivers Ryan Newman and Jamie McMurray following Sunday's Save/Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway.

Earnhardt obviously passed much of the time on the long flight across the country by interacting with fans -- and fellow drivers -- on social media.

That's how we came to know that such trips are not so glamourous much of the time. Check out the following social-media exchanges between Earnhardt and McMurray that illustrated the fact.
