Should a girlfriend tweet a picture of her boyfriend when he gets pulled over for speeding?

Yes, especially when the boyfriend is a professional speeder and happens to be one of NASCAR'S most popular drivers.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. pays the bills by driving fast for money.

But he's only supposed to do that at a Nascar race, not on the regular road. Then, instead of making money, it costs him money.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. has been put on the sidelines since July because of concussion like symptoms.

However, he still attends the races, and was headed to the Texas 500 to race remote controlled cars with children, when he was pulled over for having a lead foot.

Thankfully, Amy Reimann tweeted the picture of her boyfriend, and included the news that it was just a warning.

When asked how fast he was going, Earnhardt replied "not fast enough".
