TALLADEGA -- Talladega Superspeedway celebrated Dale Earnhardt Jr. on lap 88 during Sunday's Alabama 500.

Earnhardt drives the No. 88 car, so the public address announcer asked fans in the stand to wave, clap or "take your shirt off" for the retiring driver. 

There was no official count on the number of fans who took their shirts off ... or already had them off.
