Saying the Earnhardt family has been through a lot is a big understatement. But a positive byproduct of tragedy is how it brings people closer together, such as Dale Earnhardt Jr. and his mother, Brenda.
The bond the Hendrick Motorsports driver and his mother share is made all the more evident in piece aired on “SportsCenter” on Wednesday. Unaware his mother mother is eavesdropping in a nearby room, Earnhardt reads a letter he penned for Mother’s Day.
Once he finishes sharing the note, Earnhardt gets a surprise visit from his mom, and the two share a pretty cool moment together. Check it out in the video below:
It’s a heartwarming tribute from Earnhardt, but the most touching moment arguably comes from his mother, who says “I can’t wait for you to experience the love of having a child.”
