Dale Jr. gives us all a Christmas present by getting behind the wheel again


When Dale Earnhardt Jr. walked into the sunset after his final full-time NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series race, many wondered when they'd see him at the helm of a race car again.

It might not be a race car, but at least we know we'll see Earnhardt behind the wheel of a classic piece of American muscle in the new music video for The Dangerous Summer. Earnhardt has appeared in videos in the past for artists such as Jay-Z, Nicleback, and Sheryl Crow.  As he has in his past video appearances he'll do what he deos best -- drive.

In addition to the sneak peek of the vehicle he'll be driving, he also treated his Twitter followers to some behind the scenes action while on the set of the video.


Now that Dale Jr. has some more free time on his hands, maybe we'll see more from him. Who knows maybe he'll catch the acting bug next.
