NASCAR: Dale Jr. Signs With NBC

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.

Scott's Thoughts:

  • FOX already has Jeff Gordon. They don't need Dale Junior as much.
  • Wonder if the outside opportunities swayed Dale to NBC.
  • Dale Junior has always been funny in those Nationwide ads. He should do well in the booth.
