Dale Earnhardt Junior has lined up his post-retirement gig -- he'll be a NASCAR race analyst for NBC.
Dale Junior has announced that this season will be his last. He already has some broadcasting experience -- last year, he provided commentary on NBC for two races when he was sidelined due to a concussion.
The deal also gives Earnhardt opportunities to develop projects outside racing -- in movies, television and podcasts.
