CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Lavendrick Smith/Charlotte Observer) - Dale Earnhardt Jr., despite being a world-class driver, apparently isn't the best Uber passenger.
The NASCAR driver and Kannapolis native took to Twitter over the weekend to discuss his dissatisfaction with his Uber passenger rating.
"I'm a 4.0 Uber rating? That's complete s---," he tweeted on Friday night.
The tweet appeared to spark a mission for Earnhardt to improve his rating for the popular ride-sharing app, which allows both passengers and drivers to rate each other on a five-star system.
On Saturday, after what appeared to be his second Uber ride of the weekend, Earnhardt said his rating climbed to a 4.17. This was followed by another ride that increased his score to 4.29.
Earnhardt's rating took a quick nose dive to 3.88 after another ride, before an another trip brought him up to a 4.44.
"This is exhausting," he joked.
The company noticed on Monday and gave Earnhardt some tips: "1. Don't ask to swap seats with the driver 2. Less pit stops 3. Use the doors—no exiting through the window." The tips were quickly embraced by Earnhardt.
