The end of Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s career is coming up fast. So fast, he’s not even sure how he is handling it all.
“I’ve got a pregnant wife, I’m retiring and I just feel like I’m going to break down any minute,” He says.
He said he doesn’t know if he is ready for all of the emotion of his final race coming up in two weeks. He also said all the tributes make him feel awesome but that it is more than you can process and he expects all the emotions to break loose at sometime within the next two races.
It really shows how hard it is to say goodbye to a sport he has known his whole life. Don’t be too sad though. We will still get to see him working races with NBC and even in some future Xfinity races. It’ll be alright.
