Earnhardt Jr.'s wife says competing in Clash not worth risk

Anyone hoping to see Dale Earnhardt Jr. race in the Clash at Daytona next February got their answer from his wife.

Earnhardt Jr.'s wife, Amy, posted on social media on Tuesday night that competing in the Feb. 11 Advance Auto Parts Clash is "not worth the risk." Earnhardt is retiring after this season, but he is eligible to compete in the race after winning the pole for the race at Daytona earlier this month.

"Considering his struggles last fall with his injury, we are very blessed that he is now healthy, happy and able to enjoy his final season . and hopefully many years beyond racing," Amy Earnhardt said.
