NASCAR Cup Series driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. announced today he will retire
from full-time racing after the 2017 season.

Earnhardt, 42, made his debut in NASCAR’s top series in 1999. He is a two-
time winner of the Daytona 500, and he has qualified for the NASCAR playoffs
eight times. Earnhardt’s 600th career start came March 26, soon after he
began his 18th full-time season.

The North Carolina-born driver missed most of the 2016 season after suffering
a concussion from a crash in June.

Even though he was sidelined for 18 races, Earnhardt was the second-highest
earner in NASCAR last year, according to the latest data from Forbes. During
a press conference today he stated, he wanted go out "on my own terms."

SERIALIZED MUSTANG TO BE AUCTIONED

Image result for first ford mustang to be auctioned

 

(FoxNews) – An original Ford Mustang claimed to be the first hard-top example is
coming up for auction. It will go under the hammer at Mecum’s Indy 2017 auction
in mid-May.

This is a 1965 Mustang with VIN ending in 00002, meaning it comes after the 1965 Mustang convertible with VIN ending in 00001 currently sitting in The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. Both of these were pre-production examples,
hence the 1965 model year. The first production examples were famously sold
as 1964½ models.
