Kelley Earnhardt, the sister of NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Jr. is not happy right now. She went to Facebook to vent.

She claims she will not race at US 24 Speedway again with her child. The 10-year-old is Wyatt Miller.

“This is a dejected upset 10 yr old boy who just won a huge restricted micro race at US 24 Speedway,” Kelley Earnhardt said in a Facebook post. “He was the class of the field and ran a great race. Pulling into Victory Lane, he did a donut as we do at all race tracks for a victory and they DQ’d him for the donut as it’s against their rules. How would a 10 yr old from NC know that? They never brought it up at their drivers’ meeting. That’s one thing I can say about Millbridge is they go over every rule for every person that comes to race there from wherever.

“Never again will we come back here. It was a bullshit call against a 10 yr old boy in a kids’ class for goodness’ sake. And he was the class of the field all night. And to learn that at the big A class race in May that Frank Flud (whom we know) did donuts and didn’t get DQ’d for his big win. Hmmm.”

A fan showed that doing burnout was not one of their roles in a sign at the track. And Earnhardt replied, “Yes, we saw that after the race. We don’t go to the board for lineups because they do it on an app.”

“Tonight I raced at US 24 Speedway in the Restricted Micro,” Wyatt Miller said in a Facebook post. “I was fast qualifier, won my heat, and won the A feature only to be disqualified for a rule I was not aware of, no burnouts allowed. The rule was posted on a board that I didn’t see as an outsider racing there for my first time.

“I will def (definitely) learn from this but I was definitely upset.”
