TALLADEGA, Ala. – Sunday afternoon at Talladega Superspeedway, Dale Earnhardt Jr. will take in the action from a different vantage point – the broadcast booth.

But before the race even began, he got to soak in yet another unique experience.

Earnhardt rode shotgun in the semi that drove a giant American flag around the superspeedway during the pre-race festivities.

Earnhardt provided a glimpse of the experience thanks to his Instagram account.

Incredible experience riding shotgun in the big rig during the National Anthem today.
