There are worse neighbors to have than Dale Earnhardt Jr.
The Hendrick Motorsports driver helped kick the celebration of his neighborhood pal Ryan Blaney’s first career Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series win up a notch on Sunday night/Monday morning by bringing the beer. And lots of it.
“Dale’s a damn good friend, man,” Blaney said in an Instagram Live video Monday morning. “He dropped off four coolers of beer. Four damn coolers. That was really special.”
It’s a good thing, too, as apparently the Wood Brothers Racing driver’s bash lasted well into the wee hours of the morning. Check out the time stamp on Darrell Wallace Jr.’s star-studded tweet.

Talk about a cause worth partying all night for — not only was it Blaney’s first win in what’s shaping up to be a promising career, it was also the 99th Monster Energy Series win for the Wood Brothers, and first since Trevor Bayne’s 2011 Daytona 500 victory.

So raise a glass to win No. 99 while you still can — the way Blaney is racing, No. 100 should be just around the corner.
We did it!! Such a great privilege to driver for the Wood Brothers. Good times with good friends is all I can ask for. Let’s go for win 100! pic.twitter.com/3joF2o2uAe
