Dale Earnhardt Jr. compares wedding to Daytona 500: ‘I know I’m going to win it’

 

To say Dale Earnhardt Jr. is pumped about his New Year’s Eve wedding is an understatement.

The winner of NASCAR’s Most Popular Driver award the last 14 years in a row took to Twitter and said he told his bride-to-be, the lovely Amy Reimann, that the best way he can describe how he feels about marrying her is that this “Saturday is the Daytona 500 and I know already I’m going to win it. #FinallyHappy.”

Earnhardt has won the Daytona 500 twice, so he knows what that feels like. After missing the second half of last season while battling lingering symptoms from a concussion, he has been medically cleared to race in the 2017 500 on Feb. 26 (to be televised live on FOX) and has repeatedly stated that he’s planning on a full-throttle return.

But first he’s getting married. Congratulations in advance to both the bride and the groom who so obviously is #FinallyHappy.
