NASCAR’s Most Popular driver, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., has definitely not been sigh about his addiction to eBay. He has told media time and time again that he watches the online auction site several times a day from his tablet, smartphone, and whatever else is at his reach to see whats available and check out the collectables he has placed bid on.
His obsession has now gone beyond him winning an online auction.
Earnhardt will drive an eBay-sponsored car for JR Motorsports in the NASCAR Nationwide Series at Michigan International Speedway on June 14, the organization announced on Wednesday afternoon.

Earnhardt and eBay Motors have also teamed up in the Garage for Good campaign, where with each new registered user to the eBay Garage through the end of June will have a $1 donated to The Dale Jr. Foundation. Up to $25,000 is expected to be donated.
Fans who sign up for a eBay Garage profile will be entered in a sweepstakes to win a 2014 Chevy Camaro and have Earnhardt personally give them the keys.
Earnhardt will also participate in the “eBay Garage,” an online community where users share photos of their personal cars and find parts. His personal car collection will be displayed on the site. This is something I am excited for, as a Dale Jr. fan.
eBay will also set up a collections section where fans can see what Earnhardt has been shopping for — vinyl records and footwear included.
I don’t know who gets the better end of this deal, the fans or Dale Earnhardt. Jr.
