“You’re Drinking One Tonight”: Dale Earnhardt Jr Reveals the Time His Father Forced Him to Drink Something He Disliked in Front of a $115 Billion Sponsor


Ross Chastain recently got a big sponsorship deal with one of the largest companies Busch Light, which is owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev. 

Meanwhile, Dale Earnhardt Jr talked about his deal with Budweiser, as he revealed one funny story with his father back in 1999. 

Ross Chastain’s new sponsorship

Chastain will be the new face of Busch Light from 2024 onwards. Speaking about it, the Trackhouse Racing driver said, “It’s been probably the worst kept secret in the sport for a little while now. But yeah, we’ve known it for a little while. And you know got that set for next year and the years to come.”

Dale Jr’s advice to Chastain

In the recent episode of the 'Dale Jr Download’ podcast, Dale Jr said, “I would love for him or anybody when they get a big sponsorship like this for it to be the sponsor every single week. We’ll find out next year when we go to the racetracks where are they going to have Busch on the car. I think this is sort of one of the final, if not the final box to check for Ross. He now has all the ingredients to become one of, if not the biggest star in the sport.”

Dale Jr’s funny story with his dad

In the same podcast, Earnhardt Jr talked about going to dinner with his father to meet the owners of the Budweiser brand. Interestingly, Dale Jr was not much of a drinker initially, as he revealed, “When I teamed up with Budweiser in 1999, I was not a beer drinker, not at all!” Before dinner, Dale Jr asked his father, “‘Dad, do I gotta drink a beer at this thing?’ He’s like, ‘You’re damn right you do.'”

Dale Senior’s hilarious response to his son

Dale Jr further said, “I was like Dad I don’t like beer. And he’s like ‘You’re drinking one tonight’ he said. Get one of them red Coke Budweisers and you’re gonna sit there with that at the table and I don’t care if you have to sip on it the whole dinner and I’m like all right no problem.”
