Big news from the world of NASCAR with the announcement that star driver Dale Earnhardt Jr will retire at the end of this season. Shot this photo from the roof over the trip-oval at Daytona back in 2008 as Dale Jr did a burnout directly beneath my position after winning the Bud Shootout. The image ran as a two page spread in Sports Illustrated the next week. 👌🏼

Just found out that Dale Earnhardt, Jr. will be retiring following this 2017 season. He had some incredible years in NASCAR with 26 wins, two Daytona 500 wins, and 603 career starts to date. He is a legend in my heart following in his dad's footsteps. The Man in Black would be proud. Good luck @dalejr in your final season! #daytona500#nascar#earnhardtjr Photo credits to Hendrick Motorsports official website.
