Even though Dale Earnhardt Jr. will be the fourth big name to leave NASCAR in a three-year window, he thinks the sport is in good hands.
“Kyle Larson, Chase Elliott, just to name two of probably a dozen guys that I’m excited about,” he said. “I think that’s all I read about on Twitter yesterday was how awesome the race was and how much fun it is to watch Larson, and it’s true. He’s a real talent.
“And all those guys have great attitudes, great personalities. I know them well enough to be excited about how fans are going to know them in the future. I feel like that these are the guys that they’re the cream of the crop, and maybe I’m the only one that sees it in this room, but I really have a lot of confidence in the personalities that we have.”
