NBC Sports Group will debut a new 30-minute show, the Dale Jr. Download, on Thursday, June 21 at 5:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN.

In collaboration with NBC Sports’ newest on-air contributor Dale Earnhardt Jr., NBCSN will take viewers couch-side for the taping of the motorsports icon’s weekly podcast. The latest addition to NBC Sports’ motorsports lineup, the Dale Jr. Download will air each Thursday at 5:30 p.m. ET following NASCAR America.

NASCAR’s Most Popular Driver for an unprecedented 15 consecutive years (2003-17) and winner of two Daytona 500s, Earnhardt co-hosts the show with Mike Davis. Thursday’s debut episode surrounds Father’s Day, Earnhardt’s first as a dad. Earnhardt will reflect on his time as a new parent and share some of his favorite memories of his own father, Dale Earnhardt Sr.

“Our approach with the TV show will be no different than our approach with the podcast – buddies hanging out, talking racing, sharing life stories, and telling jokes that may or may not be funny only to us,” Earnhardt Jr. said. “I’m having a lot of fun with the podcast, and we are excited to be bringing it to TV. If we have a guest join us, it’s only because they’re relevant to whatever has my attention that week. It could be a NASCAR driver, or it could be my plumber – depends on who’s more important to me that week. The Download is as transparent as I can be when it comes to my life and thoughts.”

Produced on-site at Dirty Mo Media Studios in Mooresville, North Carolina, Earnhardt and Davis will offer “unparalleled perspective, candid commentary, and first-person insight” into the life of a broadcaster and celebrated race car driver.

The full Dale Jr. Download podcast is available at DirtyMoMedia.com and all major podcasting platforms.
