Amy Earnhardt Issues Loving Message to Husband Dale on His Book Release Day


After a countdown that has lasted for months, NASCAR great Dale Earnhardt Jr. is finally celebrating the release of his new book Racing to the Finish: My Story. And while accolades from inside and outside the sports world continue to flood in regarding Dale’s honest take on his personal and professional life, it’s the praise from his wife that just might end up being the most important to him.

“It’s finally here,” Amy Earnhardt wrote on Tuesday (Oct. 16) on her Instagram alongside a pic of the book. “Dale, I’m so proud of you for your bravery in sharing this story! A lot comes with being so honest. I know many will love you even more and hopefully also appreciate your decision to hang up your firesuit.”

As fans will recall, Dale retired from full time racing at the concussion of the 2017 NASCAR season. The book digs further into his reasons for retiring, as the fan-favorite was in fact dealing with the repercussions of multiple race-related concussions. This year, he has kept busy as a sports analyst for NBC and also starred with Amy on a home improvement series on the DIY Network.

And yes, it’s been quite a year for the Earnhardt’s, as they also celebrated the arrival back in April of this year of daughter Isla Rose.
