Dale Jr. receives congrats from favorite NFL team
NFL's Washington Redskins sends in their praise in YouTube video, tweets

Dale Earnhardt Jr. might've been the Washington Redskins' most famous fan even before the Hendrick Motorsports driver took home his second Great American Race trophy in 10 years.

But now that Junior is a two-time Daytona 500 champion, there's no question he is.

The Redskins found a way to thank Dale Jr. for his unwavering support -- especially after a 3-13 campaign in 2013 -- by making a video of a few players offering their congratulations to NASCAR's most popular driver.

Even quarterback Robert Griffin III added his congratulations into the mix on Twitter:

There's been no word on whether or not former Redskins head coach Joe Gibbs offered his congratulations to Junior, but we're going to go ahead and assume he didn’t -- considering his Joe Gibbs Racing driver Denny Hamlin finished runner-up to Earnhardt.
