By

NASCAR drivers Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and Jimmie Johnson have each launched their own weekly radio shows on XM Satellite Radio

"Jimmie Johnson: Not What You Expected with Marty Smith" is heard at 7:00 pm ET, Thursdays, on XM's NASCAR Radio (XM Channel 144). "Dale Jr.'s Unrestricted" follows at 7:30 pm ET.

The new XM show "Dale Jr.'s Unrestricted" features Earnhardt talking about the latest happenings on the NASCAR circuit, as well as music and other personal interests on the wide-ranging show.

"Listeners to my new show on XM will get a real sense of who I am both on and off the track," says Dale Jr.

"Jimmie Johnson: Not What You Expected with Marty Smith" features Johnson and co-host Smith giving a behind-the-scenes look at the sport.

Johnson says, "There are enough shows out there with all the nuts and bolts and stats and all the stuff that goes with our sport. I want to bring in a totally different aspect of what goes on once those cameras shut off and everybody goes on to their normal way of life."
