Junior to likely retire if he wins title
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) Upon further review, hoisting a championship trophy is exactly how Dale Earnhardt Jr. wants to end his career.
NASCAR's most popular driver caused a stir on "The Dan Patrick Show" when he claimed he would immediately retire if he wins the title this year. The statement followed him to media day for the Daytona 500, and there was no question about it.
"Hell, yeah. I would definitely not want to come back and try to race anymore if I won the championship. I would be outta here," he said. "That's the last box I don't have checked, really. There's a few races I'd like to win. The championship would definitely be the icing on the cake for my career."
