Dale Earnhardt, Jr. raced in the Daytona 500 Sunday, so seeing him around the pre-race drivers' meeting wasn't a surprise. But Bryce Harper's appearance sure was!
While Earnhardt was checking out the guest names last night, he saw the NL MVP listed among them and tweeted out a photo.

And sure enough, Earnhardt met Harper the day of the race.

Both men are noted Redskins fans, so here's hoping they got a chance to talk some football.
The Nationals slugger seemed to be checking out the race as a fan. Other photos show Harper meeting Kevin Harvick and sitting in Jimmie Johnson's tent.
As for the outcome of NASCAR's marquee event, it ended with the closest finish in race history. Denny Hamlin took first place in another win for Redskins fans in other sports -- Hamlin drives for Joe Gibbs Racing.
