The 2017 baby/pregnancy boom has definitely spilled over from country music into NASCAR. Or maybe it was the other way around. We’ll have to check our calendars. Either way, there are a lot of reasons to celebrate. And while we’ve been excited about all of the pregnancy announcements and gender reveals, we haven’t quite stepped up the way Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s JR Motorsports team did.
In a hilarious and clever video on their Twitter page, the fine folks at JR reveal how they celebrated the big announcement that Dale and wife Amy are expecting their first child, and it included everything from bubbly to blow torches.
Yes, you read that right — blow torches.
With a glorious chorus of hallelujahs playing behind them, everyone from the ladies in the office to the guys in the garage dance and celebrate with glasses of champagne, paint sprayers and onesies. There’s even an impressive lift a la “Dirty Dancing.” You’re gonna want to rewind and watch that one again.
Dale and Amy just shared the news earlier this week that they were expecting a daughter in 2018.
We sure share in all of the team’s excitement, we just don’t dance as well as they do.
