He has won the Daytona 500 twice (2004 and 2014) and has finished in the top-five in the standings multiple times, with the last one being a fifth place finish in 2013.

During Wednesday's press conference, Earnhardt was asked if he'd consider retiring if he won this season's NASCAR title.

"We like to sweep it all under the rug as drivers like we feel fine, nothing's wrong", Patrick said Wednesday at Daytona 500 media day. "I've always wanted to win a championship so badly". He will start Sunday on the outside of the front row beside his Hendrick teammate Chase Elliott.

The 42-year-old Earnhardt has 26 Cup victories to his credit.

"NASCAR's collaboration with TSN has been paramount to the sport's growth in the Canadian market, our largest outside the U.S. TSN has provided Canadian race fans with the ability to watch live NASCAR events for more than 30 years, and we look forward to growing the sport together in the years to come", said Steve Herbst, Senior Vice-President, Broadcasting and Production, NASCAR. His best finish in the season-ending championship points is third, back in 2003. Nature's Bakery signed a three-year deal with SHR to sponsor Patrick before the season and terminated its relationship with the team in January. Earnhardt is now in the final year of his contract with Hendrick Motorsports.

"I obviously hope the race goes better this time than it did a year ago", he said. "I love what I do, but I also love lots of other things, and I also love life, and I'm too young to have it be over". "I said that a little tongue in cheek yesterday (that he would retire), but I'd definitely consider it because that's the last box I don't have checked really".

Patrick has never missed a race because of injury in her career, but sustained a hard collision with the wall at Homestead-Miami Speedway in her rookie IndyCar season in 2005, telling USA TODAY Sports in 2015, "I got knocked out, probably, for a second".
