Former NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr is joining hands with country music superstar Brad Paisley for the NBC Sports National Promotion Campaign.
The team-up of the duo comes at the backdrop of NASCAR’s first Cup visit to Nashville Superspeedway. Brad Keselowski, Kyle Busch, Joey Logano and Kevin Harvick have previously won at the track, but the wins came for the Xfinity series.
“I’m very excited that NASCAR has returned to Nashville after 37 years!” Paisley said. “By hosting NBC Sports pre-race coverage with fellow Dale Jr., we can start the 2021 NASCAR season. How cool will it be?”

Dale Jr also expressed his excitement to be working together with Paisley. The duo of former Hendrick Motorsports driver and the country music star will ride the Peacock Pitbox with the intention of celebrating all the passionate racing enthusiasts in the city of Nashville, Tennessee.
As it will be the first time for many drivers to compete at Nashville Superspeedway, it will be an interesting watch. While the likes of Keselowski, Logano, Harvick and Busch will be favourites to win as they know the track, Kyle Larson will be among the contenders too, having recorded three consecutive wins going into the race.
