Danica Patrick Reveals History of Concussions, Would Retire If Medically Advised

Other features across social media will be the return of NASCAR's Daytona 500-themed emoji on Twitter, as well as the continuation of the Daytona 500 Hour Countdown initiative.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. might be hitching up for his last ride. "[Canada] is our largest market outside the USA and TSN has provided Canadian race fans with the ability to watch live Nascar events for more than 30 years, and we look forward to growing the sport together in the years to come". But he did allow that hoisting NASCAR's season-ending trophy may just present the ultimate racing exit for the newly married 42-year-old. "I would definitely not want to come back and try to race anymore if I won the championship".

"I think that it was a shock to all of us that one year into a three-year deal that there was a problem, but everything that was ever asked of me I did to the very best of my ability", Patrick said. "It makes you pay attention to yourself, and I think there's nothing better than having somebody like Dale Jr. going so far as to get out of the auto for as long as he did and saying, "Hey, I have a problem" because it makes it more available for everyone else". Busch finished third last year, both at Daytona and in the standings, while Harvick finished fourth in last year's race, and earned four victories on the season.

2 officers shot, 1 killed, after responding to traffic accident in California
Video from KTLA showed windows on a Whitter Police Department SUV shattered, and debris scattered across the road. Few details have been released about the incident, and it was not immediately clear what prompted the shooting.

Earnhardt smiled as he spoke but did pause often to reflect and think.

His father, the late Dale Earnhardt, won seven championship trophies, and his Hendrick teammate Jimmie Johnson just won his seventh in November. It just really depends on a lot of different things.

Patrick has never missed a race because of injury in her career, but sustained a hard collision with the wall at Homestead-Miami Speedway in her rookie IndyCar season in 2005, telling USA TODAY Sports in 2015, "I got knocked out, probably, for a second. But the championship would definitely be the icing on the cake for my career".
