Goodyear to honor Earnhardt family in new Daytona 500 commercial”

Dale Earnhardt Jr. might be done with his NASCAR driving days (or nearly done, as he still has an XFINITY Series race or two to drive in), but that doesn't mean we're going to all of a sudden stop seeing him.

The commercial was previewed for 1,550 dealers during the Goodyear Customer Conference, held January 25-27 in Nashville, Tenn.

Tune-in to watch the DAYTONA 500 on Sunday, Feb. 18, at 2:30 p.m. ET on FOX, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio and Motor Racing Network.

The son of, seven-time Monster Energy Cup Series Champion, Dale Earnhardt stars in a new Goodyear commercial that shows clips from throughout his career and his time as a youngster in the garage supporting his father. It also hints at Earnhardt's future as a broadcaster for NBC covering the upcoming Daytona 500, where he won two titles.

Denny Hamlin leads in the Daytona 500, 2015.

Here's a sneak peek at the 60-second version.

"It's been an honor to represent my family name and bring my father's song to life with Goodyear", said A.J. Croce.

The commercial was filmed in Charlotte in September at multiple locations, taking a few days to complete.

To celebrate the new creative, Goodyear created a special design on its iconic blimp, temporarily replacing Goodyear with #MakeAName on Florida-based blimp Wingfoot One.

"Dale Jr.'s story underscores Goodyear's commitment to hard work, determination and drive, and we are proud to stand by his side", Klugherz said in the release. Eastern time on February 18 on Fox channels across the U.S.
