    He has it all. Teams, shops, dealerships, interest in several tracks, ownership in another one... Zillions of dollars (and a history of concussions).

    My hat is off to him for having the guts to say **** it.

    Go enjoy life Dale.

    He does a podcast and reading slightly between the lines, if he hadn't been under contract, he wouldn't have come back for this season. Basically, he came back because he didn't want to let down his sponsors, team, etc. by not fulfilling the commitments he had made. After coming back, though, he realized that his desire to retire never got back to zero. So, he called Rick and decided it was time to move on.

    I agree with you. As much as he has, go enjoy life while you still can! :thumbs:

    I'm honestly surprised he's "only" 42. I would have thought older.

    Good for him though, I would have retired years ago if I were him :lol:

    He is making the right call. Life it to short and concussions are not joke. As one can see from all the issues from Pro football players.

    He can enjoy his family and still have a ton of fun with all that he owns and is in involved in.
