45-year-old Dale Earnhardt, Jr. retired from full-time competition with his final NASCAR Cup Series start at Homestead back in 2017. But since then, he’s stayed involved through ownership of his JR Motorsports operation, which has fielded cars for Earnhardt once a year as a driver-owner.
But Earnhardt wondered aloud how many more of these might be on his schedule, as he balances team ownership with his roles as an NBC Sports broadcaster and a husband and father of two.
“I think right now it’s just going to stay the same,” Earnhardt said. “I don’t want to do any more, that’s for sure. I don’t know how many more of these I’ll do. This might be the last one, and this ain’t no tease or anything like that.
It’s getting to the point to where I’ve got to decide whether I’m helping things or I’m not helping the team, how can I help the team in other ways.”
