CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Dale Earnhardt Jr. will do his part to celebrate 50 years of racing at Bristol Motor Speedway.

A new paint scheme was unveiled Tuesday for a car that he will run during the August 27 race at the track.

He'll be in the Golden Amp Energy National Guard car that will bear the speedway's anniversary logo.

It blows me away that at the rate that they ve built tracks over the last 10 years nobody tried to duplicate the success that Bristol has because it has truly been a phenomenal event for us, Earnhardt Jr. said.
