Martin Truex Jr. on Retirement, The Moment His Career Almost Ended, and Plans to Run The Daytona 500

Dale Earnhardt Jr. sits down for a conversation with his longtime friend and 2017 NASCAR Cup Champion Martin Truex Jr. With his recent retirement announcement in the rearview mirror, Dale Jr. is anxious to connect with Martin and see what his plans are for the future. At the time of the interview, Martin is preparing to embark on a fishing trip in his home state of New Jersey, which gives listeners a good idea of what he’ll be spending his time doing once he’s no longer behind the wheel full-time. Martin explains that over the last couple of years, he had been making more trips home to New Jersey and enjoyed connecting with his family and friends, so he recently purchased a house in his hometown. Dale inquires as to what kind of racing fans might see Martin doing in the future, to which he answers that he’ll likely be running the Daytona 500, some Xfinity events, and even a NASCAR Truck in the coming years. Martin also expresses interest in getting behind the wheel of a NASCAR modified and competing in the Turkey Derby at his home track, Wall Stadium, where he started his racing career in the late 90s. On the topic of hunting and being a full-time sportsman, Dale plants the seed of Martin possibly hosting his own outdoors show, helping to further the brand and mission state of Bass Pro Shops, of which Martin has had a long-running partnership with since first coming together at Chance 2 Motorsports in 2003. The conversation looks at the two halves of Martin’s NASCAR Cup career and how his journey to the top of stock car racing almost didn’t happen, his working relationship with Cole Pearn and what his thoughts are currently on the NextGen Car.

Dale Jr. Unpacks Nashville's Five Overtimes, The Need for Immediate Penalties, and Joey Logano's Win

After a hot NASCAR weekend in Nashville, Dale Earnhardt Jr. gets back behind the microphone for another episode of Dirty Air. In a race that took five overtime restarts to complete and produced an unexpected winner in Joey Logano, there was a lot to chat about: a box of Butler’s pickles and the Titanic Lego set, the rivalry between Denny Hamlin and Kyle Larson, whether Carson Hocevar deserves a penalty, Christopher Bell’s strong performance, the issue of unlimited overtime attempts, and what to do about extreme temperatures. Race winner Joey Logano also calls in. When the guys took to YouTube Live for the Ask Jr. segment, listeners sent in questions regarding why Dale doesn’t like concrete race surfaces, Andy Petree leaving Richard Childress Racing, and what recovery after a hot race looks like.
