The life of NASCAR superstar Dale Earnhardt Jr. has turned into a train wreck, and pals fear he’s headed for an emotional breakdown. The 35-year-old driver is feuding with the owner of his racing team, he’s burned through a string of girlfriends, and he’s still haunted by the tragic death of his legendary father, sources say. Now the troubled bachelor may be turning to booze to cope, insiders say. “Dale Jr. seems almost in a death spiral,” disclosed a close pal. “He’s locked himself away from his closest friends, and he’s upset all the time. “Those closest to him are concerned about his mental health and well-being. No one wants to see him do something stupid. We’ve suggested that he get help, take some time off and regroup, but he won’t listen.” Another source divulged: “Dale tries to downplay his reputation as a hard drinker, but he’s lived his life like a frat boy at a kegger. But now he’s drinking not for the fun of it, but to heal deep wounds that are eating away at him. We’re all worried about him.” — National Enquirer

If I couldn’t live up to my father’s name I would be pretty upset as well.. Most likely drink myself til I crash and burn..figuratively speaking. -TO
