After the race, the former champ talked about how happy he was Isla saw him in action.

"I was thrilled to have Isla there," he said via For the Win. “She won't remember what happened today, but if I never run another race, I got to have her at one event and we got a picture at the car before the race that she'll be able to have the rest of her life. It doesn't matter to me if she ever thinks that's a big deal, but I want her to have some understanding, I guess, of what I did before she was born."

Weeks after Isla was born, he talked about being a new dad on his podcast Dale Jr. Download. He also talked about how much he loved his daughter, and how it's something he has never felt before.

"I feel like everything that's gonna come out of my mouth is gonna seem so cliche, but the love that you have is more than ever," he said per For the Win. "This person – I don't know what it is, it's hard to explain. You feel this love for this baby that is not a love that you’ve felt for anybody else — and I love my wife to death, and I love my parents, my father, my sister. But the love I feel for this baby is nothing like that. And it’s 100 times more than that."
