The couple, along with Earnhardt's sister Kelley Earnhardt Miller, brother-in-law L. Miller and JR Motorsports IT manager Martin Friedrich (a Germany native), is visiting churches and other areas where Earnhardt has traced his roots.He told USA TODAY Sports last week it was his first visit to Europe aside shooting a Jay-Z video in Monaco for 24 hours in 2006."I've got some specific areas narrowed down I want to go see and some buildings I want to go see that I know my family was somewhat connected to," Earnhardt said.
Reimann posted a picture early Wednesday afternoon of the couple posing together in what appeared to be a church, showing off her new engagement ring."I'm completely overwhelmed with love & joy," she tweeted. I love you so much @Dale Jr."The 40-year-old Hendrick Motorsports driver has never been married and mostly kept his relationships out of the spotlight over the years until he began opening up about how much Reimann has changed his outlook on life.
NASCAR fans have been quite fond of pestering Earnhardt about when he planned to pop the question since the couple had been dating since 2009."The people we interact with on Twitter are, 'When are you going to do it? '"Now the questions can turn to wedding planning – and possibly Earnhardt's very real jewelry phobia.
Charlotte Motor Speedway spent the day filming scenes in the old-time saloon located in the town, since this year's Sprint All-Star Race commercial will again have a Western theme.
Earnhardt agreed to let the track use his property for the commercial shoot.
The 42-year-old NASCAR driver tied the knot with longtime girlfriend Amy Reimann at a picture-perfect wedding on New Year’s Eve. Looking forward to the rest of our lives @Amy_Reimann.
