Dale Earnhardt Jr. wants you to know he’s got some major skills off the race course.
The stock car racing champ, 42, tweeted on Tuesday that he and wife Amy will star in a new home renovation series on the DIY Network. “Exciting news!” he writes. “@Amy Earnhardt and I are working on @DIYNetwork TV series where we’ll renovate a historic home in Key West!”
Amy, 35, echoed her husband’s excitement on social media: “Can’t wait to flex those design muscles & make this house shine! #DaleJrProject,” she tweeted. The series, set to air in 2018, will follow the couple as they transform a fixer upper in the Florida island’s Old Town district into a gorgeous modern home.
“Amy and I are excited to take on our first home renovation project together,” Dale Jr. says in a DIY Network press release. “Amy is a fantastic designer. She has creative ideas and a strong work ethic. We love DIY projects around the house, and so I expect this to be challenging but fun.”
Dale is one of the sport’s most enduringly popular stars and has won the Daytona 500 twice, in 2004 and 2014. He announced in April that he plans to retire at the end of the 2017 season.
Dale and Amy married on New Years Eve in 2016 after dating publicly since 2011.
