WASHINGTON, BEAUFORT COUNTY - NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt, Jr. is in Eastern North Carolina today for a meet and greet with his fans.

Minges Bottling Group partnered with Walmart for an incentive program that included 230 Walmart stores in North Carolina and South Carolina. The store with the largest percentage increase in sales during the month of July 2014 won the opportunity to bring Dale Earnhardt Jr. to their location for an appearance. That location turned out to be the Walmart in Washington.
Diet Mountain Dew, a product of PepsiCo Americas Beverages and locally distributed by Minges Bottling Group, is a sponsor of Earnhardt Jr. and the No. 88 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet.
