I don't know who Tommy Tomlinson is, (well, yeah - I know he writes for ESPN The Magazine) but he just wrote one of the best pieces I've ever read about Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Of course, Jr's had a lot going on in the last several months, with a concussion that could've ended his career, rehab that took longer than anybody expected and he and his girlfriend Amy getting married. And now he's back in a race car. And apparently, he's a changed man. In a good way.

I guess it's that fifth concussion that finally changes you. Yeah, that one at M.I.S. was his fifth. That he knows of.

Here's the story. Good stuff.
