The only NASCAR driver I had any use for and who was the only reason I watch racing at all is retiring. I'm guessing he feels last year was as close as he was going to come to winning the title being mere laps away before Joey Logano ran him into the retaining wall. Good luck and God bless Carl. I'll certainly miss you.
