The couple, who have been dating since 2009, are in Germany researching Earnhardt's family lineage during an off week for Sprint Cup Series drivers.
The 40-year-old Earnhardt, son of seven-time Sprint Cup champion Dale Earnhardt, has won 12 consecutive NASCAR Most Popular Driver awards.
As one of the sport's biggest celebrities, his personal life often is the subject of lifestyle and gossip articles, including one National Enquirer story last year that said he would have a million wedding."I definitely would have a hard time writing that check," Earnhardt said at the time.
His sister, Kelley Earnhardt Miller, who is also on the trip, tweeted congratulations to the couple.
NASCAR's most popular driver is ready to say "I do."Dale Earnhardt Jr.
announced Wednesday morning that he and his longtime girlfriend, Amy Reimann, are engaged."Looking forward to the rest of my life with this amazing girl," Earnhardt tweeted, retweeting a photo Reimann posted of herself and Earnhardt, which showed an engagement ring on her hand, as they visited a Lutheran church that Earnhardt's family had attended seven generations and 300 years ago.
"The timing’s not right." Apparently, a vacation abroad is the right time.
Kinda hard when the only thing your good at is laying on your back and getting pregnant. As for Jr and Amy's home improvement show, do you really think people are going to watch. Please report any comments that suggest the person is gay or had sex with anybody or has an STD. Might they have to get a job like the rest of America? If you see inappropriate comments, then please report them by clicking the report abuse link aside the comment. Get a life you bozos and stop bagging on others that actually have money to go where they choose... ----------------------------------What brought all this on? Reply-to: Just curious to see what happens to NASCAR when Jr. Most people watched races because of his Dad and him. And oh what will happen to the Baba Mamas like Jordan when the money stops coming in.Among the members of the Hendrick Motorsports racing team who died was Ricky’s uncle (and team president) John Hendrick and his twin daughters, Kimberly and Jennifer Hendrick.The crash was a devastating blow to one of the most respected families in NASCAR, but just when things were at their darkest they were given a small ray of light thanks to Ricky’s 19-year-old fiance Emily Maynard. We had lost so much.” 15 Emily Maynard was working as an event coordinator at the Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, N. which includes the Ricky Hendrick Centers for Intensive Care, a pediatric intensive-care facility named for Ricky after his father Rick Hendrick and mother Linda Hendrick donated million to the hospital.
