"Amy and I want to thank everyone who has lifted us up with phone calls, messages, and prayer since last Thursday," he said in his statement. "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."

Earnhardt Jr. races part-time after retiring from racing full-time in 2017. He also works for NBC Sports as a NASCAR analyst. Dale will also be an honorary starter at the Daytona 500 next year and Amy and their daughter, Isla will be right by his side.
