I've been a Dale Jr fan ever since he started in the (then) Busch series, driving for his dad. But now that he's retiring, Jr fans will have to pick somebody else to root for. For me, the current choices are Brad Keselowski, Erik Jones (both from Michigan) and Kyle Larson. And, gotta say, the Mid-Michigan Kyle Larson fans are lobbying me hard to pick him.

But, as if he heard our thoughts, Dale Jr just gave us HIS OWN ten picks of who to root for after he retires. He announced them on his podcast Tuesday and NASCAR.com shared the information. I will tell you - one of the Michigan drivers made his list. Plus, there's a bonus MYSTERY driver that may come into play.
