FORT WORTH, Texas — Dale Earnhardt Jr. is having trouble slowing down despite the concussion that stopped him from racing in the second half of the 2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

He got pulled over for speeding on the way to the Texas Motor Speedway for the AAA Texas 500 on Sunday in his Buick.

Earnhardt’s fiancee posted a photo of him with the officer standing outside the car.

According to her tweet, Earnhardt got off with a warning. When asked how fast he was going, Earnhart was quick with a comeback.

According to ESPN, Earnhardt id appearances at the track and watched some of the race from the No. 88 pit box.

Earnhardt began experiencing concussion-like symptoms in late July. According to NASCAR, a crash at Michigan International Speedway in June is believed to be the cause.

Earnhardt announced in September that he would sit out the rest of the season to focus on being healthy and ready to compete at the Daytona 500 in 2017.
