Bud has put together a touching tribute to Dale Earnhart Jr's career and has helped build suspense for his "One Last Ride".

"We created this short film to pay tribute to Dale Earnhardt Jr. and his incredible career." said Budweiser's vice president, Ricardo Marques, "Budweiser has great memories of working with Junior and we will never forever his time spent in the Bud auto".

Budweiser was Junior's first Cup sponsor and was on the vehicle for the entirety of his career with Dale Earnhardt Inc. That was when he also switched his race number to his current #88. "Budweiser has great memories of working with Junior and we will never forget his time spent in the Bud vehicle".

From his first win as a rookie in Texas to his Daytona 500 win to his emotional win at Daytona just five months after his father was killed on the same track, Budweiser was there for those moments.

Dale Earnhart Jr was racing royalty long before he first joined the ranks of Nascar's greats.

"Budweiser will always have a special place in my heart." . It was unexpected and humbling.

Earnhardt's No. 88 Chevrolet in the season finale will be a replica of the No. 8 Budweiser vehicle with the same color codes.
