Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Stemming from his love of the online auction site, eBay is sponsoring Dale Earnhardt Jr. in a Nationwide Series next month.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s affinity for eBay has evolved from obsession into something more and will now combine two of his favorite things: online shopping and driving.

Earnhardt will drive an eBay-sponsored JR Motorsports car in the June 14 Nationwide Series race at Michigan International Speedway, his fourth and final start of the season.

Additionally, NASCAR's most popular driver will be take part in the "eBay Garage," an online community where members can find car parts and accessories as well as share photos -- including Earnhardt, who will post pictures of his personal collection.

"As most people are aware, I've been obsessed with eBay for the past few years because I do a lot of shopping for vintage racing stuff," Earnhardt said. "It's a great place to find all the things you need and love. And eBay Garage is especially cool because it's an online community for car enthusiasts. I have a profile set up already so you can see what's in my garage. I'm looking forward to seeing what other people have in theirs."

EBay will also allow members to see the various items Earnhardt, who has a fondness old racing magazines, vinyl records and shoes, purchases.

"I feel very fortunate to be in a position to merge my two passions together, which is collecting racing memorabilia and driving race cars," Earnhardt said. "I definitely have a deep appreciation for history, and eBay has been my go-to source of finding things I never thought were available."
