OK, what?s going on in Dale Earnhardt Jr.?s world? That?s an actual question, because we can?t really make heads nor tails of this very cryptic tweet he sent out on March 9,

?For all my years I always thought that if I didn?t get along with someone that with enough effort I would be able to make it right,” he tweeted. “Now, lately, I?m wondering if there is just no fixing some relationships.”

Wow. We?re not sure what relationship is at the center of this situation, but it?s clear that it?s personal for the recently retired NASCAR star.

Many fans were weighing in on the weighty statement, but what really got our attention is when Junior?s sister Kelley replied to it.

?It takes the effort of two people. Not just one,” she write in return. “Otherwise you?re wondering is accurate, as it will never be mended. It?s also OK to realize that?s maybe it?s just not meant to be fixed. Sometimes it?s better to leave it be.”


You know when your sister gets involved on a public forum, it?s serious. And we have to say, she?s right. Relationships of any kind are a two-way street, and require both parties to be on the same page and putting forth the same amount of effort to make things right.

Whatever Dale Jr. is experiencing right now, we hate it for him. But even with this struggle, he still has so many great relationships to be thankful for, like the one with his sister, who clearly has his back, and the amazing marriage he shares with his wife, Amy! These two are absolutely a dream couple and they?re about to be dream parents with a baby due in May! We just know that the relationship Dale Jr. will create with his new daughter will be the most special one of all.
