What happens when the world of professional auto racing and home renovation intersect? We'll find out in early 2018 when a special home-improvement series featuring third-generation NASCAR champion Dale Earnhardt Jr. and his wife, Amy, makes its debut on DIY Network.

Didn't see that one coming? Turns out that Dale Jr., who recently announced that he'll be retiring from auto racing at the end of this season, has a soft spot for home improvement. Combine that with the fact that his wife, Amy, is an accomplished interior designer, and the picture starts to come into focus. In fact, it was during the building of his North Carolina home that Dale Jr. met his future wife, Amy Reimann, then an interior designer with the Atlanta-based architectural firm of Wakefield Beasley & Associates. What started as a professional and creative relationship, bringing inspiration to Dale Jr.’s custom-built home, ultimately blossomed into something much more, and the couple were married on New Year's Eve 2016.

Amy is a fantastic designer. She has creative ideas and a strong work ethic. We love DIY projects around the house, so I expect this to be challenging but fun.

The new DIY Network limited series will follow the couple as they restore a classic but dilapidated home in the historic Old Town district of Key West, transforming it into a contemporary seaside retreat. But to create their idyllic tropical getaway, Dale Jr. and Amy face some of the challenges common to renovating and restoring old homes, including structural issues and antiquated wiring and plumbing.

Following the arc of the series, legions of Earnhardt fans will get some insight into just how Dale Jr. will be occupying his time now that he's away from the track, and home renovation enthusiasts will be treated to a novel new series with an intriguing couple set in a beautiful locale.

"We've seen how Dale Jr. races a car, so we're confident that with Amy's help he will easily navigate the typical trials and tribulations of a home renovation," says John Feld, senior vice president, original programming and production, HGTV, DIY Network and Great American Country. "Fasten your seat belts because this one is sure to be a thrilling, unpredictable ride."

The new DIY Network series is slated to premiere in early 2018. Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting new show, and keep checking back here for updates on the network's new and ongoing series.
