Dale Earnhardt Jr. confirmed Friday that he will wed Amy Reimann on Dec. 31.

Earnhardt stated the date after winning the NMPA Most Popular Driver for a 14th consecutive year. No wedding location was revealed.

“It’s only a few weeks away,” Earnhardt said Friday night in Las Vegas during the Sprint Cup Awards. “I’m really excited. I have enjoyed going through the process. I’m excited to be marrying Amy. I told her when we were starting to plan I wanted to be at every function. I wanted to be involved in all the planning. I don’t want to miss anything. I look forward to our future.”

Earnhardt’s wedding date is the same as that of another NASCAR couple. Kyle and Samantha Busch married on Dec. 31, 2010.

Earnhardt proposed to Reimann on June 17, 2015, while they were in Germany on vacation.
