Dale Earnhardt Jr. will appear in People Magazine's "Most Eligible Bachelors" that goes on sale at newsstands this week. With a distribution of more than 40 million copies, this special edition of the magazine is one of the most visible and widely distributed publications of the year. His selection was kept highly confidential before being revealed Tuesday evening on "Dateline NBC."

The interview for the feature took place at Dale Jr's own "JR Motorsports" offices in Mooresville, NC, and the photo shoot took place in turn four of Lowe's Motor Speedway near Charlotte, where Junior posed in front of one of his No. 8 Budweiser race cars.

This marks Dale Jr's sixth appearance in People Magazine. His first appearance was in October, 2000 when he was selected to appear in the "Sexiest Men" issue. His poise and accomplishments during a very difficult and emotional 2001 also garnered him a mention in the magazine's "Most Intriguing People of 2001."

Dale Jr. will also be a visible component of this weekend's programming on MTV. Saturday and Sunday is the "MTV True Life Marathon," where the most popular episodes of the "True Life" documentary series will be shown. Dale Jr's one-hour documentary will air with some new interview footage taped recently at California Speedway.
