Thanks to a tweet heard ’round the NASCAR Nation, we all know about Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s favorite sandwich, bananas and mayo.

The driver turned the much-discussed tweet into a charitable endeavor with the funds raised going to Blessings in a Backpack. Kelley Earnhardt Miller, Dale Jr.’s sister and the co-owner/general manager of JR Motorsports, said after the Richmond win that all told, fans have donated over $55,000, while Hellmann’s and Dale Jr. will each donate $50,000.

Driving the No. 88 Hellmann’s Chevrolet, Earnhardt Jr. won the ToyotaCare 250 to score his first win behind the wheel for the team he co-owns, JR Motorsports. And if you are wondering how he celebrated in Victory Lane, just remember it was a little after lunchtime of a 149-lap race, so the man was hungry.
