    It's a shame. Gordon, Smoke, Carl, now Dale. Big blow.

    Not surprised, every interview I've ever seen with him minus maybe one or two post-win interviews he just never seemed all that in love with racing, although maybe that's just his personality.

    I know living in his father's shadow probably put a lot of pressure on him but being the richest and most popular driver in almost two decades probably made it a little easier.

    Smoke retired two years too late.

    Junior and Edwards retired too early.

    I don't think it was too late. He just didn't have a very good team.
