Over the January 22nd weekend in 2022, retired race car driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. was inducted into the NASCAR Hall Of Fame. Alongside Dale Jr., modified racer Mike Stefanik and Alabama short-track legend Red Farmer were also inducted.
Tonight, we honor and celebrate the achievements of three incredible drivers.

Each inductee gets a concrete marker outside the Hall Of Fame and Dale Jr.’s was placed right next to his legendary father’s marker. They became the seventh father-son duo to both be in the Hall Of Fame.
Following the induction ceremony, Dale Jr.’s wife, Amy, threw him an extravagant party at The Fillmore Charlotte. It included black and white checkered floors, pillows with the Hall of Fame logo on it, an incredible ice structure, and so much more!
Not only did Amy pull off one of the best looking parties we’ve ever seen, she also surprised her husband of four years with one of his favorite country singers – Dwight Yoakam!
Dale Jr. himself posted a few photos from the incredible night and told fans to swipe through the photos to see the “special guest” Amy surprised him with.
Amy created her own post about the surprise, which was not easy to pull off! She wrote, “Surprising @dalejr with anything is so fun for me, BUT this one was the best. Thank you @dwightyoakam from the bottom of my heart for coming and playing for us!”
What a treat! We can’t imagine being able to pull off a surprise like this! This isn’t the first time the two men have met. In 2015, at the NASCAR Auto Club 400, Dwight and Dale Earnhardt Jr. sang an impromptu duet of “Fast as You,” proving that Dale Jr. is a huge fan! Watch it below.
