With the Indianapolis 500 in the middle of the afternoon, bookended by Formula One and NASCAR races, Sunday marked one of the biggest days in racing. And despite having his own race to prepare for, Dale Earnhardt Jr. was focused on the Indy 500 just as much as most fans.

After Takuma Sato took the checkered flag at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Earnhardt took to Twitter to comment on the race’s other big story line: Fernando Alonso.

Alonso noted during his post-race press conference that he didn’t miss being at the Monaco Grand Prix, as the Indy 500 was so exciting. Earnhardt retweeted that quote, adding he thinks what Alonso did was “fascinating.”

Considering all the attention Alonso received throughout his Indy 500 preparation, we doubt anybody would disagree with Earnhardt.
