“It’s been great being Dale’s teammate over the years. He has done so much for the sport and has one of the most loyal fanbases that I have ever seen. I’m glad he was able to do what he loves for so many years, and now it’s fun watching him be so happy and taking the next step in his life.”

"Obviously I feel like in a lot of ways Dale and I have had some similarities over the years with both of our dads racing and our dads having a lot of success over the years. So, I think it some ways he's been a great person to lean on just because I think he's been through some of the same things I've seen and dealt with over the years. To have a guy like that as your teammate that you get to work with on a weekly basis that also may have seen some of the same things I have, I think it helps a lot. I'm proud to call him a friend, most importantly, and certainly a teammate. I'm looking forward to hopefully seeing him end this year on a high note."
