"Amy and I want to thank everyone who has lifted us up with phone calls, messages, and prayer since last Thursday," Earnhardt said in his statement at the time. "We are truly blessed that all on board escaped with no serious injuries, including our daughter, our two pilots, and our dog Gus. With respect to the investigation, we will not be speculating or discussing the cause of the accident. I am thankful for the quick response of my pilots, local law enforcement, emergency personnel, and hospital staff. Lastly, Amy and I continue to be very appreciative of the privacy extended to us to process everything. It has been important to do that together and on our own time."
Earnhart left racing full-time in 2017. However, he takes part in one race per year and he recently finished in the top five at the Darlington Raceway back in September. Earnhardt is considered a racing legend as he won the Daytona 500 in 2004 and 2014.
