Kelley Blue Book recently posted a video of NASCAR's 11-time Most Popular Driver and 2014 Daytona 500 winner Dale Earnhardt Jr. reviewing and racing a tiny Chevrolet Spark

Earnhardt Jr. shot the video with KBB.com's Managing Editor of Video Micah Muzio.

KBB teamed with Hendrick Motorsports as a primary sponsor of Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s No. 88 Chevrolet SS NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team for the 2014 and 2015 race seasons.

"Our support of a talented driver like Dale Earnhardt Jr. can only be topped by getting to spend quality time with him," said Micah Muzio, managing editor of video for Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com. "We had a blast testing out the adorably tiny Chevy Spark on Earnhardt Jr.'s estate just north of Charlotte, North Carolina."

Dale admitted in the video he had never driven a Spark before participating in the review.

After comparing the appearance of the vehicle to a go-kart, the two tested the Chevy Spark on a real go-kart track.

"Unsurprisingly, what begins as a simple video review quickly morphs into something much more exciting. One partially airborne Chevy Spark and several smoking tires later, it's clear why Dale Earnhardt Jr. is such a popular and successful driver."

The two-time Daytona 500 champion seemed impressed with the new Spark, giving it a 9 out of 10 in his review.

"If you're buying this car, you know what you're buying," Earnhardt said in the video. "You're buying it for a practical reason. It's got everything you're going to need. Very comfortable, very easy, acceptable. Plenty of get up and go for a car like this."

Muzio joked with Dale that when his time is up as a NASCAR driver he should consider becoming a full-time critic. That's not a bad idea.
