Dale Earnhardt Jr. to Pocket $500,000 from Stunning Key West Flip

We’re thinking he should consider a new career.

Forget racing, Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s real talent is in house flipping!

If a pending sale on the Key West home the retired NASCAR driver and his wife Amy refurbished for their DIY Network show, Renovation Realities: Dale Jr. & Amy, goes through, the couple’s first adventure in flipping will be anything but a flop.

The couple purchased the dilapidated beauty in 2015 for $1.2 million. Despite having to deal with stray cats, termites, bees, and Amy's pregnancy along the way, Dale told The Charlotte Observer that he and his interior designer wife were able to stick to their $900,000 budget. They later listed the home for $2.6 million, which means that if the pending sale goes through, the Earnhardts will net a staggering $500,000 or more on the 150-year-old home.

Now fully updated, this three-bedroom stunner is a true beachside oasis that comes complete with a swimming pool, outdoor kitchen and Dale and Amy’s initials carved in the cement patio out back.
