Dale Earnhardt Jr. pops the question in Germany


NASCAR’s most popular driver made it a vacation to remember Wednesday. With the NASCAR Sprint Cup series off this week, Earnhardt along with a select group of friends and family are in Germany this week researching the family lineage. Among those with the group is Earnhardt’s longtime girlfriend Amy Reimann.

Tuesday Reimann officially became Earnhardt’s fiancé. Earnhardt popped the question inside a Lutheran church that family had attended through seven generations and 300 years. Reimann shared the engagement via a Twitter post featuring a picture of them inside the church. Reimann tweeted. “Happiest girl in the world! I love you so much @DaleJr.” Earnhardt posted a Tweet later; “Looking forward to the rest of my life with this amazing girl.”

On the trip along with Earnhardt is his sister Kelly and brother-in-law. Also on the trip is Martin Friedrich, an information technology specialist at JR Motorsports, Earnhardt’s Xfinity and Camping World Truck Series team. Friedrich, a native of Germany, is acting as a tour guide for the two couples. MORE>>>
