NASCAR’s most popular driver has had a busy couple of weeks. Dale Earnhardt Jr. spent the off week for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series traveling to Germany to study his family’s ancestry; while there he, drove on the Autobahn and asked longtime girlfriend Amy Reimann to marry him. Friday at Sonoma Raceway Earnhardt talked about his trip, his future and sounded off on one of the most controversial subjects in America today.
Earnhardt popped the question inside a Lutheran church that family had attended through seven generations and 300 years. Friday Earnhardt said he had been planning to ask the question for several months.
“I was hoping for years that Amy (Reimann) and I would get married and it just seemed like over this last year, it made more sense to me and that the timing was right,” he said. “And I picked that particular spot just because I wanted her to feel special.”
“We talked about this trip for a while,” he added. MORE>>>
