Although Dale Earnhardt, Jr. may not be leading the race today in Martinsville, his love of country music led him to good friends like Dierks Bentley.
"Meeting Dierks Bentley was a highlight for the NASCAR star. "Dierks was great, and we've become really good friends," he says. "I think he came to a race or two, and we walked up on pit road, and I think almost at the same time looked at each other and said, 'My girlfriend dates me because I look like you' [laughs]. He's a real neat guy."
