Immediately after Bush announced this news, the former NASCAR driver and Hall of Famer took to Twitter and supported Busch in his decision.

Then, Kurt Bosch replied,My passion for this sport may be second only to mine. I am very proud to help the teams and drivers achieve the highest levels, and it is an incredible honour. Thank you, Dale.”

Junior is someone who can ideally come to terms with why Bush decided to quit the sport. Earnhardt Jr. himself suffered a traumatic brain injury after sustaining multiple concussions during several career wrecks. At one point, things got so bad for him that he had to walk away from racing. Although Junior eventually did return to racing, he soon decided to retire completely from the racing arena.

NASCAR fans respect Kurt Bosch’s decision and support for Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Fans appreciated that Bush decided to prioritize his health over anything. They also took the time to thank both Junior and Bosch for their contributions to the sport, especially when it came to speaking openly about drivers’ health and safety.
