Dale Earnhardt Jr.

LIQUOR BEFORE BEER

You're In the Clear!

Dale Earnhardt Jr. tells TMZ Sports ... he celebrated his big Daytona 500 victory by boozin' with his team 'til around 4AM -- so why isn't he a hungover mess this morning??? Simple. He followed the cardinal drinking rule.

You know how it goes ...

"Beer before liquor, never been sicker.
... Liquor before beer, you're in the clear."

Dale Jr. was out in NYC yesterday and told us he abides by the code -- usually startin' with some Jim Beam before switchin' to suds.

*Warning -- cardinal drinking rule does not always work. Booze with caution*

I really doubt that he was in NYC yesterday as he was in Daytona Beach Florida "ALL" day as the race did not finish until 11:18 pm yesterday. Maybe TMZ is a little confused???

Beer, then whiskey: pretty risky. Whiskey, then beer: have no fear!

My drinking days are over, but in my experience, this rule proves true.

If you listen Dale even tells his schedule. He left Daytona around 9 am Monday morning. After an hour if sleep. Congrats in the big win.
