Dale Earnhardt Jr. was ironically stopped for speeding on the way to a race in Texas


Oh, the irony! 

Dale Earnhardt Jr., a man whose made a career out of driving fast, was stopped for speeding Sunday on his way to a Sprint Cup race at Texas Motor Speedway.

Earnhardt's fiancé, Amy Reimann, tweeted out a photo of a police officer writing the NASCAR driver a warning for speeding. 

Reimann, however, didn't say just how fast he was going. 

A fan asked how fast he was going and Earnhardt replied, "Not fast enough." 

Earnhardt hasn't hit the race track since late July when he first began experiencing concussion-like symptoms, according to ESPN

In September, the NASCAR driver announced that he would miss the rest of this season. 

Earnhardt plans to return to the No. 88 Chevrolet for the Daytona 500 next year.
