How did Dale Earnhardt Jr. feel about Dale Earnhardt's death?

Like any son who cares about his own father, he had to feel extremely heartbroken upon his passing. Dale Jr. was not only his son, but a fan also. I believe he was in shock because everyone believed Dale Sr. was invincible. Now knowing what we know about Junior's relationship with his stepmother, he might have even been thinking about DEI going downhill. Which it did. If there was no merger with Chip Ganassi, there would be no racing team left that bears the Earnhardt name. Junior probably felt that not only did he lose a father that day, he lost a car owner that would have given him a pat on the back or a kick in the pants when needed.
