I'm pretty sure her income pales in comparison to what he's made and will continue to make from endorsements alone.   :)

 

I would virtually guarantee he'll be in the booth or hosting a show somewhere.   He won't be hurting for money either way.

For sure-he is as well spoken as anyone in Nascar.  Plus as someone else has reminded us, his wife is an MD.  Perhaps she has laid the concussion trip on him.

And let's face it - at 37 he wasn't likely to win a championship.

I can relate to what Cousin Carl did. Although I could probably have kept working for another four or five years I decided to retire at the end of April last year. I didn't hate my job, I was making really good money and I have no health issues. However, I bought a really nice home with 91 acres in my home town in rural PA almost five years ago. I have a nice pension and I am old enough to get early SS. Sure, I could have waited to get a couple bucks more in my monthly retirement check from Uncle Sam and I could have added more to my 401K but I wanted to move back home and I could afford to do it now while I am still healthy enough to enjoy it. I have spent most of my time since I retired putting up a 40x50 steel building to keep all my toys in and have taken enough time out for hunting and fishing. I have two small ponds and thirteen tree stands for deer hunting on my property plus a stocked trout stream within walking distance of the house. Believe me, it was not a mistake.

If I were in your position (or Carl's for that matter) I would strongly consider the same thing.

What? What happened?

Well not sure I would agree with that.  Look at how the season ended- with the new format someone gets a good break and they are in, on the other hand..........

Besides-how many 37 year olds do you know that can be cramped up in a race car for 2 or 3 hours at about a 100 degrees, then get out and do a backflip from 3 ft off the ground :)

Let me rephrase that - a 37 yr old who is already concerned about his health is probably not going to drive on the edge the way you need to drive to win a championship.

 

It is possible though.

FYI...I meant from a health standpoint, having a doctor as a spouse!

I will always remember the 2011 Ford 400 race when Carl Edwards was tied with Tony Stewart for the championship, and would have been given the crown except for the pit call to Jeff Burton to "slow down" allowing Tony to finish the race with enough points for a tie. The tie allowed Tony to win based on having more previous wins than Carl throughout the season. I don't recall Carl ever complaining about what Burton did to prevent him from the championship. I think that shows a lot of class!

My best Edwards memory is the bonsai move he tried on Johnson on the last lap at Kansas in 2008. What made it even better was his comment after the race that it worked in video games. LOL!

One of my cousins had a saying about older drivers. He said their problem was they had developed an "air gap". In other words, they could no longer sit back in the driver's seat...
