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.

Those people who think it is just a bunch of guys driving around in circles clearly haven't watched racing. Go to ONE race.. I guarantee you'll be hooked.

Dale is a good driver,not GREAT like JEFF GORDON,but it was cool what he did.To all the Nascar haters,Its second in American sports behind football in monies made from advertisers.Now I believe that junior does have a lot of pressure on him to be great like his father was,but junior is just an above average driver at best!!!!!!
