Dale Jr says retirement from driving in NASCAR is "on the horizon". According to the Sporting News, during his press conference at Michigan International Speedway on Friday, Jr said he'll talk to Jeff Gordon, who's retiring after this year and Dale Jarrett, among others, to figure out when the time will be right to retire.

One of the reasons he's thinking about retiring? "I'm turning 41", said Jr. Jeff Gordon is 43.

But, he's still looking for that first championship. How much will that play into the decision?

Here's the story.
