It was all over the NASCAR Web sites on Thursday. Texas Motor Speedway is replacing a promotional billboard that featured Dale Earnhardt Jr. after sister/business manager Kelley Earnhardt Elledge complained. The old billboard read: Reason #88: Step-mom. The new one will read: Reason #88: New car smell.
