Dale Earnhardt Jr.: ‘I wanted to go out on my own terms’ (video)


Dale Earnhardt Jr. didn’t want anyone to tell him what to do when it came to broaching the subject of retirement.

After missing the second half of last season due to a concussion, Earnhardt said Tuesday that he had plenty of time to think and ponder when he’d retire from the sport.

That day came Tuesday, and it was Earnhardt — and only Earnhardt — that made that decision. Yes, he went out on his own terms.

Check the video above from his retirement announcement.
