It doesn’t matter if you’re a NASCAR fan or not. This footage of Dale Earnhardt Jr. and his father playing along to Zac Brown Band’s “My Old Man,” will make you tear up.

NASCAR posted the video on social media February 25 and Dale Jr. was quick to respond.

Earnhardt died in a crash during the final lap of the Daytona 500 in 2001. Earndhardt Jr., sixteen years later started Sunday in the front row for the 2017 race. His return to racing didn’t last as long he would have liked, Jr. had a race ending wreck on lap 105 of the 200 lap race. Earnhardt Jr. missed the last 18 races recovering from a concussion during the 2016 season.

Watch the lyric video below for the Zac Brown Band’s newest single, “My Old Man.” The Zac Brown Band is set to release their fifth full-length album, Welcome Home, May 12.
