Power Hour on Dale Earnhardt Jr.!

12/30/2009 4:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dale Earnhardt Jr.Dale Earnhardt Jr. was in one hell of a giving mood last night -- dude bought drinks for more than 800 people who walked into his North Carolina bar.

It all went down at the Whisky River bar in Charlotte -- which is owned by the NASCAR stud. We're told Dale decided to pick up the tab for every drink ordered in his place between 8-9pm.

Bartender Shawn Southern -- who was also on VH1's "Tool Academy" -- says the bill was "a ridiculous amount of money" ... but Dale made sure to treat the staff to a "very generous" tip.

who dat    

The guy who owns the bar writes off a few watered down drinks. How much were you guys paid to post this worthless story?

Jr should be spending EVERY free moment trying to figure out why his teammates were able to ALL finish in the top 3 in the Nascar points system, and he finished 22nd? In other words it's not the car, it's the driver. Does he want to be a race car driver, or a bar fly.

this is all fine and dandy, but when's the last time he won a race?? That's what I thought. Spends more time doing commercials and being everyone's friend rather than winning!

STUD?! Are you kidding me? Did you SEE his stats for last season?! Geez! I certainly hopes he does better in 2010... for the sake of his fans at least.

Kendra Would Rock Your C**k!    

Yes, Ed. Rednecks make left turns while you are using apostrophes that are absolutely UNECCESSARY!
"redneck's" ... "turn's" ... ???
Ed, I'd like you to meet the pot. Pot, I'd like you to meet Ed.

Its real easy to be generous when you don't have to worry about winning another race because you are the son of a Nascar legend, bear his name, and can make money on that name for the rest of your life.

Good thing too, since Jr is the most overated driver in NASCAR history.

Who cares!!! This is just the rednecks idea of an end of the year tax deduction. His accountant told him he had to make a few donations so can avoid a tax bill. Instead of doing something good with a donation, he decides to get a few drunks even drunker. Who knows how many of these idiots then got in a car and drove home possibly killing someone. What a guy. Nice to know he doesn't have any common sense. Just a hillbilly that drives a car. He doesn't give a flying F**K about his fans or the drunks in the bar. It's amazing how people get their panties all moist just because a so-called celebrity will toss a few crumbs to the poor people. Wow!! He spends a couple grand on a bunch of drunks and everyone thinks he's such a great guy. Typical hillbilly. Just another Dukes of Hazzard wannabee.
