Dale Earnhardt Jr. was innocently trying to help out his friend and drum up some excitement for a new business venture...the only problem is that the whole thing was supposed to be a secret.
Not anymore! Jimmie Johnson called out Dale Jr. on Twitter for leaking the information in advance of when they had planned on making an announcement, but still had some fun with it and definitely appreciated the assist from his buddy.
In a tweet on Monday afternoon, Dale Jr. told his 2.25 million followers about a new restaurant Johnson was opening up on September 12th - and even pointed them in the direction of the diner's website.
The next day, Johnson caught wind of the unofficial announcement by his celebrity driver friend and clarified his own plans for an announcement, poking fun at Dale Jr. along the way.
