Retired NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr found a racecar he's been looking for a year buried deep in the woods of his renown 'Racecar Graveyard' on Thursday.
The two-time Daytona 500 winner, who comes from a family of NASCAR racers, has a massive graveyard of 75 trashed race cars, damaged from fast and furious races, on his North Carolina property.
Earnhardt, 44, posted to Facebook saying that he had been looking for a vehicle known as a 'land speed car' that once belonged to Xfinity Series owner Wayne Jesel for 'about a year'.
Despite his impressive collection, he couldn't find the particular car despite searching for it for a year because his property manager didn't keep track of new additions.
Then on Thursday he finally stumbled upon the prized vehicle deep in the woods on his property.
