Danica Patrick just released a statement about Dale Jr. that has everyone in shock. I can’t believe it.
It has been a tough season for Danica Patrick after hearing that her sponsors were not going to renew her contract. The driving star is being forced to end her career in NASCAR and it is quite heartbreaking.
This all coming right after Dale Jr. announced his retirement. If you know anything about NASCAR you know that Dale Jr. and Danica Patrick are two of the most publicized drivers in NASCAR history.
Of course, the two of them were famous for very different reasons, but loved nonetheless. Furthermore, she recently Danica Patrick was in a press release saying her final goodbyes to NASCAR.
It was an extremely emotional time for her and she broke down in front of the cameras.
Dale Jr. also had an emotional goodbye in front of the cameras on Sunday, November 19th. He even handed over his final race helmet in a show of appreciation and honor of their time working together.
Many thought that Danica was DONE with NASCAR and wouldn’t ever post about it again. That wasn’t the case though.
The NASCAR star posted a very heart-felt message to her longtime colleague, Dale Jr. that has us all in tears. She took time to post and congratulate him on his incredible career.
She continued by wishing him the best for his future. It’s so cool that she isn’t afraid to celebrate others in the hardest times of her life.

“Congratulations Dale on an amazing career. No one will ever forget you. Ever,” she wrote in a captioned photo of the two after a race. “I know I will always be grateful for your help getting me into NASCAR. You help so many do that and as if your results weren’t enough to leave a legacy, that will be a part of it too. I hope most of all today, that you have fun in the car!!!”
I can’t believe she did that!
