Redskins super fan Dale Earnhardt Jr. spent the day in Richmond on Tuesday to hang out at Redskins Training Camp!

However, in his excitement to get to the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center to see the team practice, he left his Chevy Colorado pick-up truck running in the airport parking lot – for eight hours!

Earnhardt tweeted about the mishap on Tuesday night, saying he “was so geeked out about going to Redskins training camp that I left my truck running all day at the airport.”

He followed it up with another tweet saying, “So if you are wondering a Chevy Colorado at idle for 8 hours only burns just over a quarter tank of gas.”

It looks like Dale had a great day while his truck was running. Not only did he visit the Redskins at their training camp, he also treated a few players to a few high speed laps at Richmond International Raceway!
