CONCORD, N.C. (AP) — NASCAR's most popular driver has certified that Charles Barkley is "not turrible" behind the wheel.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. squared off against the Hall of Fame basketball player in a head-to-head race that will be aired on NASCAR on TNT's Summer Series before the June 8 race at Pocono. Earnhardt was pleased with the meeting but wouldn't reveal details of Friday's race.

The idea for the race began on social media when Earnhardt landed in one of TNT's "Gone Fishing" tweets after the Charlotte Bobcats were eliminated from the NBA playoffs. Barkley mentioned he wanted to meet the driver, and Earnhardt replied on Twitter, "Heck, I wanna meet Charles!"
