On a night the No. 3 black chevrolet returned to the Daytona 500, the son of the man who made that car famous won the big race. Dale Earnhardt Jr hung on through rain delays to win the race finally on Sunday night, and his girlfriend Amy Reimann thinks it is the biggest win of his career.
From USA Today:
Reimann, wearing a black Chevrolet victory lane hat over her blond hair, called Earnhardt’s Daytona 500 victory “the biggest win of his career.”
“He’s just come so far that it just means more to him now,” she said. “He’s worked really hard for this and waited a long time for this to happen again.
“It’s just a lot of pressure for him (to win), so this is extremely exciting. He feels like it’s not real.”
Reimann said she was nervous as the race came to an end.
“On a (nervous) scale of 1-10, I was about a 20,” Reimann told USA TODAY Sports.
