When it comes to popularity, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Bristol Motor Speedway have plenty in common as both are number one in the hearts of race fans.

Put Earnhardt Jr. and the World’s Fastest Half-Mile together and it’s a can’t-miss combination that makes for an unforgettable experience as the driver of the Diet Mountain Dew-sponsored No. 88 goes after the coveted IRWIN Tools Night Race trophy Aug. 25.

Adding to the excitement for Earnhardt Jr. fans is the opportunity to be the audience when the former BMS winner is scheduled to make an appearance in the hospitality area at the Diet Mountain Dew Half-Mile Club that afternoon.

“I’m always excited about being at Bristol,” said Earnhardt Jr. “And I’m looking forward to seeing all the fans at the Diet Mountain Dew Half-Mile Club. There’s nothing like racing at Bristol – that atmosphere there for the Night Race is amazing and so are all the fans who come out for the race.”

The Diet Mountain Dew Half-Mile Club features an exclusive member’s-only gift pack, a Saturday track tour, door prizes, entertainment, a souvenir program, and NASCAR celebrity appearances.

The Diet Mountain Dew Half-Mile Club is available for the IRWIN Tools Night Race. Limited tickets are available at a cost of $180 for adults and $135 for children 12 and under.
