Earnhardt Jr. getting his own line of potato chips
At this point, 14 years into NASCAR's Dale Earnhardt Jr. craze, you'd think every conceivable product known to man already had the driver's name or car number attached to it.

You know, like Dale Jr. pajamas, Dale Jr. bowling balls (seriously) and Dale Jr. pet safety harnesses (no joke!).

There's really nothing else Earnhardt could possibly endorse, except for maybe potato chips or something.

What's that you say? A Minnesota-based company announced Wednesday that it's creating four flavors of Dale Earnhardt Jr. potato chips?

Well, I'll be darned.

According to the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal, Earnhardt Jr. has partnered with a company called KLN Family Brands to create "Dale Jr. Foods," which will distribute four flavors of potato chips: Crispy Original, Carolina Barbecue, Zesty Jalapeno and Creole & Green Onion.

You'd have to think Carolina Barbecue would be the best out of those — Junior being a Carolina boy and all that — but Creole & Green Onion also sounds intriguing.

That should pretty much complete the world of Dale Jr. products, unless he decided to endorse a vending machine cheeseburger or something. USA Today
