Dale Earnhardt Jr. gets emotional over this Mother’s Day message to his mom

Dale Earnhardt Jr., driver of the #88 Nationwide Chevrolet, walks through the garage area during practice for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway on April 22, 2017 in Bristol, Tennessee. We'll find out in early 2018 when a special home-improvement series featuring third-generation NASCAR champion Dale Earnhardt Jr. and his wife, Amy, makes its debut on DIY Network. Earnhardt said they will renovate a historic home in Key West.

Dale Earnhardt Jr., a 26-time NASCAR victor, announced in April that this will be his final year of driving. He missed much of last season after struggling with concussion-like symptoms. The four half-hour episodes will combine Dale's love of home improvement with Amy's interior design expertise.

"Amy and I are excited to take on our first home renovation project together", Earnhardt said in a press release. "She has creative ideas and a strong work ethic", Dale Jr.

Earnhardt met his wife, then an interior designer, during the building his North Carolina home.

To create their dream seaside home, the couple must first tackle the renovation challenges that often come with older homes, including structural damage, faulty plumbing and ancient wiring.

"I think back as a 6-year-old kid, you a single mother, us losing everything in a house fire".

The show will air sometime in 2018, according to a tweet posted directly to Earnhardt Jr.'s Twitter account, and will be focused in Key West, Florida.
