Brad Keselowski stole the show at Talladega with a win in the throwback paint scheme that honored Dale Earnhardt Jr., who drove in his final race at the Alabama track — a place nicknamed ‘Earnhardt Country’ rightly so.

Just weeks later, the No. 2 Ford driver is going above and beyond (again) to show his admiration for Junior’s career and their friendship.

Keselowski announced on Twitter that all proceeds from his Talladega victory T-shirts will be donated to the Dale Jr. Foundation to show his appreciation to the No. 88 driver and JR Motorsports.

Earnhardt Jr. responded to Keselowski’s kind gesture with a tweet of his own thanking him.

In his pre-Talladega blog, Keselowski gave thanks to Dale Jr. and added, “Dale, there’s not a doubt in my mind that you’ll excel at whatever it is you do next, but it’s not going to be the same out there without you. I’m going to miss racing against you, my friend. I’m going to miss seeing you out there in the 88 on Sundays.”

Is there a bromance brewing for a good cause? Cheers to this.
