Dale Earnhardt Jr. said he has read and heard talk about NASCAR allowing drivers a little more “wiggle room” in how they conduct and express themselves this year.
“I don't believe them,” he said. “I don't think anybody does.
"What does that mean? Are we supposed to walk the line and see where we step over it? Are we going to get fines when we go too far? What is it that they are saying?
"I think, honestly, they are playing to you guys. They are not talking to the drivers, they are playing y'all.
"I think it is basically they are trying to appear to be looser.”
