“Don’t miss your chance to be a part of something amazing,” Whiskey River said on Facebook. “If you are a Dale Jr. fan ... .you don’t want to miss this!”

“I’m not a fan so I’ll miss it,” replied Michael Russell on Whiskey River’s Facebook page “I appreciate his family, namely his father, but he didn’t drive like he was born to. Thank you for your competition and may you enjoy being a father. Godspeed to you JR.”

Judging by the 125 likes to Whiskey River’s announcement on Thursday, plenty of others are ready to line up in Russell’s place.
