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."
