NASCAR legends Tony Stewart and Dale Earnhardt Jr. both reached milestones this year, and they don’t have anything to do with racing.

Stewart recently got engaged to his girlfriend, Pennelope Jimenez, and Dale Jr. will soon be a father. Former NASCAR driver and current analyst Dale Jarrett joked that he never thought he’d see the day when those two things happened, let alone them happening in the same year.

“I just told Tony backstage that 2017 brought two things that I wasn’t sure that I’d ever hear,” Jarrett said. “Dale Jr.’s going to be a dad, and Tony Stewart’s going to get married. I said, ‘ holy s**t. But it’s outstanding for both of you Congratulations.”

Stewart joked that he didn’t think he’d see it happen either.

Congratulations to both NASCAR legends, and as Dale Jr. joked, maybe it’s Stewart’s turn to become a father next.
