CONCORD, N.C. – It’s no secret that Dale Earnhardt Jr. is a fan-favorite as he’s been voted Most Popular Driver 13 consecutive times.

The driver of the No. 88 Chevrolet SS just made another list as well. Time Inc.’s “The Drive” released its Top 10 Most Influential Car People in Sports and Earnhardt was one of three NASCAR names to make the cut.

Earnhardt sat seventh on the list due in part to two reasons: first, his popularity in the sport of NASCAR and second, the fact that one out of every five marketing dollars in the sport are spent on Earnhardt.
