Longtime sponsor Budweiser released this thrilling three-minute tribute video to honor the incredible career of Dale Jr.

It also touches on the emotions following the death of his father Dale Earnhardt Sr. and how the younger Earnhardt returned to win at Daytona shortly thereafter.

For Dale Jr.'s upcoming final race in Miami, he plans to drive in a throwback design to the Budweiser #8 with a paint scheme of red, white and black. 

"My years with Bud were amazing," Earnhardt Jr said on Twitter. "They taught me so much and I can not measure the impact they had on my professional career."

Dale Jr. has a total of 26 NASCAR Cup Series wins and is a two-time winner of the Daytona 500 over his career.
