NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. has two more helmets to add to his helmet collection.

On Thursday, he showed off two Ole Miss helmets he just received. And yes, one of them is camouflage. The combination of NASCAR and SEC football is not complete without camo.

The on-field helmet from the Rebels features Hugh Freeze's signature and "Dale Jr. - Rebs pull for the 88."

No word how Ricky Stenhouse Jr. is feeling after seeing that phrase. Stenhouse, the boyfriend of Danica Patrick, is from Olive Branch, Miss.

Earnhardt Jr. also collects wrecked race cars. He has a car graveyard on his property in North Carolina where the skeletons of crashed cars are scattered about.

He wasn't the only driver who got a helmet from an SEC school this week either. Austin Dillon, the man driving the No. 3 in the Sprint Cup Series for the first time since Dale Earnhardt's death in 2001, toured Tennessee's Neyland Stadium and exchanged helmets with the team.

Tennessee is playing Virginia Tech in 2016 at Bristol Motor Speedway in Tennessee.
