The Chief and the NASCAR Hall of Famer are both from North Carolina, making the home-state crowd erupt in cheers during the moment.

Earnhardt died after a collision happened at the Daytona 500 in 2001.

Thanks to the power of social media, Earnhardt’s son, Dale Jr., caught wind of the moment and tweeted out, “"Dad would love this. All his fans and family certainly appreciate the respect @ericchurch."

Eric Church brings his Double Down Tour to the PPG Paints Arena on May 3rd and 4th.
