Letter to the Editor: Dale Jr. Retirement

My name is Jacob Cohen, and I am 16 years old. Dale Earnhardt Jr. announced his retirement from NASCAR in April of this year.

He was the most popular driver in NASCAR for 14 years. He was very popular because his father Dale Earnhardt Sr. died in the 2001 Daytona 500, and he carried his father's legacy.

He got the most popular driver award from 2001 to this year.

He has been my favorite driver in NASCAR since 2008. That is when I first discovered NASCAR. I am going to miss that he will not be racing every week.

I enjoy watching him on TV and especially when I see him at Phoenix International Raceway.

He will only be racing in two NASCAR Xfinity races next year, and probably will not be at PIR.

That is why I am looking forward to seeing him race at Phoenix International Raceway one more time in November.
